Racist Cupcakes: A court forced French baker, Boulangerie Patisserie, to pull cupcakes of a naked man and woman made out of dark chocolate with pink lips, saying they were inciting “racial hatred.”
On Thursday morning a court in Grasse, in the Alpes-Maritimes department of south-eastern France, ordered the town to force the baker to remove the offensive pastries from his boulangerie, deeming them an “attack on human dignity”, Le Parisien reported.
The sweet pastries in question, named “Gods” and “Goddesses” are in the form of obese people, covered in dark chocolate with over-sized sexual parts.
While the baker who sells the little men and women filled with shortbread and chocolate mousse saw the cakes as inoffensive, for one anti-racism group in France, they were anything but. Source: The Local
