Walmart will remove its ice cream, commemorating Juneteenth amid growing backlash.


“Share and celebrate African-American culture, emancipation and enduring hope,” the label read.

The ice cream consisted of a swirl of red velvet and cheesecake flavors.

“Juneteenth holiday marks a celebration of freedom and independence,” the company said in a statement to FOX Television Stations. “However, we received feedback that a few items caused concern for some of our customers and we sincerely apologize. We are reviewing our assortment and will remove items as appropriate.”
