Do you bank with Wells Fargo? You might want to close your accounts after reading this.
Los Lunas, NM: A U.S. flag flies near the Wells Fargo branch in Los Lunas. The stars and stripes used to hang inside the bank, too – but not anymore.
“We have to stand up for what’s right and it’s right to be able to display the flag!” an upset customer said. “Because of someone previously complaining and being offended about the flag being up, they were asked to remove it.”
A Wells Fargo spokesman says they received multiple complaints from people in other states about U.S. flags on display in their banks so they have ordered flags removed at all branches across America.
So, the one here had to come down, as well.
“I’m not really sure why someone would be offended,” the customer said.
Wells Fargo wouldn’t tell us why customers have been offended by the flags hanging inside.
As of Tuesday, the flag inside the Los Lunas branch had been taken down. It seems the people working there were just as surprised.
“People are just really shocked that in America we would be asked to take down an American flag,” the customer said.
The spokesman says the flag went up before the Fourth of July last year without company approval. They also aim for a ‘”consistent look and feel in all branches,” so the flag idea didn’t fly.
“We need to grow up here a little bit and stop being so offended about every little thing,” the customer added.
The Wells Fargo spokesman also told us that the way the flag was hanging up, with tacks, could be considered disrespectful. He says Wells Fargo will be installing a flag pole outside the Los Lunas branch.
I’ll tell you what’s disrespectful… A company that disrespects our nation and its flag!
