Wal-Mart to remove products promoting the Confederate flag

Posted: Updated:
Retail giant, Wal-Mart, pledges to remove everything in its stores that promotes the Confederate flag.

The action comes after a deadly shooting at a Charleston, South Carolina church that killed nine people. Since the crime, controversy has sparked over the removal of the Confederate flag at the South Carolina State Capitol.

Wal-Mart says the company never wants to offend anyone with the products it offers.

Online, Wal-Mart sells items featuring the flag's design, including T-shirts and belt buckles.

A statement from the company says the items will be removed from stores and the website.
