Store Defends Not Making 'Adolf' Cake

EASTON, Pa. — A supermarket is defending itself for refusing to a write out 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell's name on his birthday cake.

Deborah Campbell, 25, of nearby Hunterdon County, N.J., said she phoned in her order last week to the Greenwich ShopRite. When she told the bakery department she wanted her son's name spelled out, she was told to talk to a supervisor, who denied the request.

Karen Meleta, a ShopRite spokeswoman, said the store denied similar requests from the Campbells the last two years, including a request for a swastika.

"We reserve the right not to print anything on the cake that we deem to be inappropriate," Meleta said. "We considered this inappropriate."

The Campbells ultimately got their cake decorated at a Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania, Deborah Campbell said Tuesday.

A Wal-Mart spokesman told The Associated Press on Wednesday that in light of the incident, the company would review its guidelines regarding cake decorations and other requests.

"It's clear that in serving this customer, some people were offended," spokesman Greg Rossiter said. "As a result, we're going to review our policies."

Heath Campbell said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because "no one else in the world would have that name."

The Campbells' two other children are named JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, who turns 2 in a few months, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, who will be 1 in April.

Campbell said he was raised not to avoid people of other races but not to mix with them socially or romantically. But he said he would try to raise his children differently.

"Say he grows up and hangs out with black people. That's fine, I don't really care," he said. "That's his choice."

He said about 12 people attended the birthday party Sunday, including several children of mixed race.

They thought it sounde nice? Did they just hear it on Discovery Channel and didn't bother to check WHO the person was they named their child after? These Parents deserve a boot to the head and the child a smarter family and a proper name.

Wtf? Lucy Lawless (Xena actress) named her son Judas! What the hell with that no one in the world? People still can like that name and Adolf is a very common Jewish name I think. It`s not anybody`s fault some idiot has/had a name you like.


Btw this father seems pretty imbecilic. You should name your children like you want instead of using shocking names and such. Meh.

PS. Both are wrong. Guys from the candyshop should make everything. It`s their job. A proud father should go buy a new piece of brain instead of his damaged second-hand's (brain's) one.
