MARSHALL (KMHL) – A shocking video of a couple wearing Nazi swastika face masks in the Marshall Wal-Mart on Saturday has gone viral and created quite the stir around the community over the weekend.
In the video, the couple, who is not identified, is seen wearing the Nazi symbol as a protest to the recently enacted executive order forcing Minnesotans to wear facemasks at indoor public places.
The video shows them being confronted by others in the store.
(Warning the video contains graphic content and language that some may find offensive)
Edit, since this is going much further than I thought it would (and the trolls and haters are starting to roll in): I was born and raised in Germany, and I grew up hearing about my great-grandmother who fought in the underground against the first wave of Nazis in the 1930s and 40s. Let me make this abundantly clear once and for all – THE SWASTIKA IS A HATE SYMBOL AND YOU DO NOT FLY THE FLAG, YOU DO NOT WEAR THE SYMBOL ANYWHERE ON YOUR BODY, YOU DO NOT USE OR DEFEND THIS SYMBOL, EVER. END OF STORY.

Wal-Mart officials issued a statement saying what happened in the Marshall store is completely unacceptable.
Marshall Police issued a trespass order that keeps the couple from entering any Wal-Mart facility for the next year.
