A New York City bakery has caused quite a bit of controversy as it capitalizes on President Barack Obama’s inauguration.
The Lafayette French Pastry Bakery in Greenwich Village is selling ‘Drunken Negro Face’ cookies — chocolate covered biscuits with large red eyes, nose and lips.
The bakery owner, Ted Kefalinos, claims it’s “just a fun face”. But news reports say he’s used the “N word” when talking about the cookies and made vague hints of assassination.
He reportedly told several patrons: “They’re in honor of our new president. He’s following in the same path of Abraham Lincoln. He will get what’s coming to him.”
I don't blame people for being mad! what the hell?
