Walmart shoppers freaked out over a display designed to honor the heroes and victims of the largest terror attack on U.S. soil which occurred on 9/11
Basically the display was a 9/11-themed Coke display which presented Coke Zero in place of Ground Zero.
The 9/11-themed soda display was spotted in a Walmart in Panama City Beach, Florida.
One Muslim man named Muhommad said, الحُرُوف العَرَبِيَّة, الأَبْجَدِيَّة العَرَبِيَّة
Another man named Shawn Richard noticed it on Tuesday. He was on vacation in Florida with his girlfriend, and they’d stopped at the Walmart to buy some things for the beach.
“We stopped and stared at it like, oh my god,” Richard told BuzzFeed News. “Nobody seemed to be noticing it, it wasn’t very crowded, and I got the feeling that it had just been assembled. So we took some pics and went on our way.”
Apparently Richard and many others feel that the tribute to the fallen twin towers and the thousands of victims who lost their lives at ground zero was a bad thing and meant simply to sell more of the product by capitalizing off of the tragedy.

A Walmart spokesperson told Orlando Weekly the display is being taken down.
He also said the Coca-Cola Company usually comes up with display ideas, which Walmart can choose whether or not to approve. This one was approved.
The Coca-Cola Company has replaced the display and apologized with the following statement:
“This display was meant to honor local firefighters and to support their organization’s upcoming event. We sincerely apologize that anyone was offended or misunderstood its intent, and we have replaced the display.”
Look, personally I don’t find this offensive at all. These are liberals that are bitching.
If Walmart set up their display to honor Black Lives Matter there would be nothing but praise.
Liberals have no place in civilized society.
