Walmart nazi mask incident in Marshall, MN.

A couple in Marshall, Minnesota, have sparked outrage after they were pictured wearing swastika face masks at a Walmart in Marshall, Minnesota.

On Saturday, a video posted to Facebook by Raphaela Mueller shows the two being confronted over the nazi masks they're wearing on the first day of Minnesota's COVID-19 statewide face mask mandate.

The two make politically charged statements while they engage with the shoppers who call them out:

The video, now trending on social media and racking up well over a million views, has been the subject of widespread condemnation.

According to reporter Minnesota reporter Max Nesterak, the couple wore the swastika-emblazoned face coverings as a protest against the state's mask mandate, which went into effect on Saturday.

They have not been identified, but according to Kare 11, police were called to the store over the incident and ended up citing the couple for trespassing.

Meanwhile, FOX 9 says the two have been banned from Walmart, and won't be able to visit any location for at least a year.
