A gay couple has been told by a cake shop that they do not make wedding cakes for gay couples. How business savvy!
Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig plan to wed officially in Provincetown, Mass., this September, with a reception for friends and family in Denver a month later. When they went to order a cake, Masterpiece Cakeshop But after bakery owner Jack Phillips listened to their request, they say, he refused it. His business doesn’t create cakes for gay weddings.
“It was the most awkward, surreal, very brief encounter,” Mullins says. “We got up to leave, and to be totally honest, I said, ‘Fuck you and your homophobic cake shop.’ And I may or may not have flipped him off.”
Lols. Love it. I must admit i would have done the same
Mullins and Craig don’t seem to be the only same-sex couple to encounter problems with Masterpiece Cakeshop. According to Westword, other previous customers like Yelp user Samantha S., have said the shop does not “participate in making cakes for ‘illegal’ things, such as a commitment ceremony.” A Masterpiece employee did say, however, that they would be willing to make any other kind of celebratory cake for gay customers, as long as it was not for a wedding or commitment ceremony.
Wow how big of them.
Apparently there have been some online commentors that have suggested violence against Masterpiece, but Mullins says he and Craig “do not condone shit-throwing, bombs or any kind of crazy violent actions.”
I agree. Violence is wrong and does not further your cause.
The couple has since gone to a gay friendly shop, but an online petition is circulating, and a boycott is being organized after the incident. I signed it!
I say effem’ if they are stupid enough to put discrimination before income. Like Chick-fil-A, boycott them and call it a day!
