Walmart will remove its ice cream, commemorating Juneteenth amid growing online backlash from African Americans.
The ill conceived 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."
