Grocery store owner bans Pepsi products once he notices offensive logo

He removed all of the Pepsi from the store shelves.
After deciding not to sell two specific Pepsi items, a store owner from Athens, Alabama, made a choice that divided people’s perspectives and sparked an online discussion.

The proprietor of S&Z Grocery, Phillip Stewart, claimed that he was unable to market products with the NFL’s logo because he personally disagreed with it.I don’t want to support them in any way, he said in a statement to WAFF, “because I feel like it’s just wrong.” “I can’t sell the product in good conscience because it does have the logo on it,” he continued.

Steward notified his clients via a Facebook post that he would be discontinuing the items because he disagreed with the way some NFL players insulted the flag by kneeling during the national anthem.

A number of athletes were protesting against police brutality and the way people of color are treated by kneeling during the national anthem.

Stewart said he completely understood the athletes’ point of contention, but added that he thought “there are other ways to deal with it.”

“This has brought attention to it, I’m sure there is good that comes from this, I just don’t agree with the tactic,” he added.

This business owner had nothing against Pepsi or the protest’s goal. Instead, he continues to market their goods, but not those with the NFL emblem.

While some individuals thought Stewart’s choice was foolish, others admired him for sticking up for his convictions.
