Walmart has pulled a controversial shirt that was being sold online after receiving a complaint from the nation's largest police union. 

The shirt depicted the word "Bulletproof" over the title "Black Lives Matter."

National Fraternal Order of Police president Chuck Canterbury wrote in a letter to Walmart, "At a time of year when we as a nation and indeed, as a world, should be coming together in hopes of peace on Earth and goodwill toward men, these third party sellers are profiting from racial division."

Walmart has said it will remove the shirts from it's online store after receiving the complaints.

A Georgia Walmart has apologized over it's refusal to bake a "Blue Lives Matter" cake for a police officer's retirement party after store employees implied the cake could be seen as racist.

The incident occurred last week after the retiring officer's daughter sought to have the cake made at a McDonough, Georgia Walmart. 

After describing the cake design the woman was told by a Walmart employee that the cake, "could be perceived as racist and nobody feels comfortable decorating the cake."

The woman eventually went to Kroger to have the cake made but after reports of her experience went viral on social media Walmart tried to apologize.

The woman didn't feel the apology was sincere, however. "I think he [the manager] just did that because, thanks to you all, this got so much attention, and he didn't want it to go farther than it did. The way the meeting was described to me was that it was very scripted and not very sincere."

A rumor had circulated around the community of St. Cloud, FL that a uniformed police officer had been denied service by an employee at a local Walmart.

After much speculation, it turns out the rumors were true.

Apparently, a uniformed officer entered the Walmart on 13th street last week, collected some items, and attempted to check out. When he approached the register, the clerk allegedly pointed to her skin color and refused to help the officer. 

Another employee allegedly laughed at the incident and the way the officer was being treated.

After confirming the veracity of the story, local reporters reached out to Walmart for comment.

Corporate HR responded by stating, "This is an unfortunate situation, but we cannot comment on an active HR investigation."
