A New Jersey supermarket last month refused to print the full name of a 3-year-old boy named Adolf Hitler on a birthday cake.
The boy’s parents, Heath and Deborah Campbell, are upset that a ShopRite would not print the name and are accusing the store of being intolerant, The Associated Press reported.
“They need to accept a name. A name’s a name,” said Heath Campbell, who eventually purchased the cake in nearby Pennsylvania. “The kid isn’t going to grow up and do what [Hitler] did.”
Twelve people showed up at Adolf’s birthday party, including several children of mixed race, the AP reported.
“If we’re so racist, then why would I have them come into my home?” Heath Campbell asked.
The couple has two other children: one-year-old JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, who will be age one in April.
