WEST MONROE - Walmart apologized to a shopper who said she was harassed by workers who made fun of her body image, changed from fighting cancer.

"All of a sudden, these two employees come bursting in, {saying}, 'sir, you can't be in here.' They started laughing and they went out," Johnna Utzman said in an interview with KNOE TV.

Utzman lost her hair and had a double mastectomy and said she is used to getting looks but was hurt since adults were the ones chastising her.

"When a kid tells you something, most of the time, they are pure at heart, they don't mean to hurt you," she said. "These were adults."

Walmart told the TV station the employees involved have been suspended and the store is conducting an investigation.
