Seriously… what is wrong with people??
A US supermarket has refused to inscribe a birthday cake for a toddler named Adolf Hitler.
New Jersey couple Heath and Deborah Campbell wanted to mark their son Adolf Hitler Campbell’s third birthday with a cake from supermarket chain ShopRite.
But the store refused to inscribe the toddler’s cake for the family, who are Holocaust deniers and have swastikas in every room of their house.
“We believe the request … to inscribe a birthday wish to Adolf Hitler is inappropriate,” Lehigh Valley Live News reported a ShopRite spokesperson as saying.
But Adolf’s parents have described the supermarket’s denial as “sad”.
“Other kids get their cake. I get a hard time,” Heath Campbell, 35, said. “It’s not fair to my children.” The chain offered to leave the cake blank for the Campbells to decorate themselves, but the family rejected the offer.
Their two younger daughters also appear likely to cause similar problems down the track.
JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, who is named after notorious Schutzstaffel head Heinrich Himmler, will turn two and one early next year.
ShopRite has already stated they will not make a cake for JoyceLynn.
Fellow supermarket chain Wal-Mart now appears set to create Adolf’s cake.
“Our No. 1 priority in decorating cakes is to serve the customer to the best of our ability,” a Wal-Mart spokesperson said.
The Campbells, who are both unemployed due to alleged disabilities, deny they are damaging their children or setting them up for harassment at school.
“They say, ‘He (Hitler) killed all those people’ … I say, ‘You’re living in the wrong decade. That Hitler’s gone’,” Mr Campbell said.
“Yeah, they [Nazis] were bad people back then but my kids are little — they’re not going to grow up like that.
“Other kids get their cake, I get a hard time.”
