Why When this grocery store owner notices an offensive logo on Pepsi products, he bans them?

After deciding not to sell two specific Pepsi products, a store owner in Athens, Alabama, made a decision that divided people’s opinions and sparked an online debate.Phillip Stewart, the owner of S&Z Grocery, explained that he simply couldn’t sell something he was opposed to, namely the NFL, whose logo was printed on the products in question.

“I don’t want to support them in any way,” he told WAFF, “because I feel like it’s just wrong.” “I can’t sell the product in good conscience because it has the logo on it,” he continued. Steward informed his customers via Facebook that he would be withdrawing the products because he did not agree with how some NFL players disrespected the flag by bowing during the national anthem.

Several players were kneeling during the anthem in protest of police brutality and the treatment of people of color. Stewart stated that he understands why the athletes were protesting, but that “there are other ways to deal with it.” “This has brought attention to it, and I’m sure there is good that comes from it,” he said. “I just don’t agree with the tactic.”

This proprietor had nothing against the protest or Pepsi. On the contrary, he continues to sell their products, albeit without the NFL logo. While some thought Stewart’s decision was stupid, others praised him for standing up for his beliefs.
