A man in Louisiana is asking for an explanation from Walmart after his request for a Confederate flag cake at one of its bakeries was rejected, but a design with the ISIS flag was accepted.

Chuck Netzhammer said he ordered the image of the Confederate flag on a cake with the words, “Heritage Not Hate,” on Thursday at a Walmart in Slidell, Louisiana. But the bakery denied his request, he said. At some point later, he ordered the image of the ISIS flag that represents the terrorist group.

“I went back yesterday and managed to get an ISIS battleflag printed. ISIS happens to be somebody who we’re fighting against right now who are killing our men and boys overseas and are beheading Christians,” Netzhammer said.

A spokesman for Walmart told ABC News, “An associate in a local store did not know what the design meant and made a mistake. The cake should not have been made and we apologize.”

“That’s an ISIS battleflag cake that anybody can go buy at Walmart,” Netzhammer explains in a video posted on YouTube showing the sheetcake. “But you can’t buy a Confederate flag toy, with like, say, a ‘Dukes of Hazzards’ car.”
