Oregon bakery shop accused of racism over Oreo cupcake named ‘Mr. President’

CupcakeA black-owned Oregon bakery is being accused of racism after selling an Oreo cupcake the named “Mr. President.”

The Oregonian reported Monday that outraged customers have been blasting the bakery on Yelp criticizing Fat Cupcake for its “Mr. President” treat. The cupcake is described as an Oreo Cookie baked inside white cake with cookies n’ cream buttercream.

“Very troubling. They were serving a cupcake called the ‘Mr. President’ that had an Oreo cookie inside. When I tried to point out the racism implied, they claimed that ‘our current president loves Oreos,’” one Yelp reviewer wrote.

Anjelica Hayes, the owner of the Portland-based bake shop, says she is black and therefore the cupcake cannot be racist. She said they originally named the cupcake because it was so good they wanted it to hold public office. She later found out President Barack Obama’s favorite cookie was the Oreo.

Hayes said the bakery also took heat from an item dubbed “The Intern.” The same Yelp review who lambasted the shop over the Oreo cupcake took issue with “The Intern” because they thought it was a jab at Monica Lewinsky, Hayes told the paper.

    iT’S AN ABSOLUTE RIDICULOUS COMPLAINT. PEOPLE ARE JUST LOOKING FOR A REASON TO GRIPE. HOWEVER I WANT TO POINT OUT ONE REMARK MADE BY THE BAKERY OWNER—-YES, YOU CAN BE BLACK AND BE RACIST. ALL RACES PREFER THEIR OWN RACE, BUT IF YOU QUALIFY SOMEONE ONLY BECAUSE THEY ARE A PARTICULAR RACE (SUCH AS PREFERRING OBAMA ONLY BECAUSE HE’S BLACK) THAT IS RACIST. OR DISQUALIFYING SOMEONE ONLY BECAUSE THEY ARE WHITE, OR INDIAN OR ASIAN IS RACIST, IF YOU ARE BLACK. RACISM IS ALL AROUND US. THERE ARE RACISTS IN ALL RACES. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE WHITE TO BE A RACIST.

    Obama is not a black man because his mother is white! Maybe they can bake some half-breed cakes…lol I do not understand why people call Obama the first black president when everyone knows Bill Clinton has that title.

    Everybody knows BLACKS can’t be RACIST!
    Only the crackers and white Devils can be accused of that.

      Most of this BS is started by blacks like BLM who is nothing more than a black KKK and Mr. Obama should be called out on all his racist comments about whites and people of faith.
