Fat Cupcake, a Portland-based cupcake shop is being accused of racism

A Portland, OR-based cupcake shop, Fat Cupcake, has been accused of being racist shortly after opening a shop in southeast Portland.

Customers expressed their outrage over one of the cupcakes that the store had on it’s menu, “Mr. President”, which was described on their menu, as  “Oreo (™) Cookie baked inside white cake, cookies n’ cream buttercream.”

One reviewer on Yelp wrote, “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.”

Was Fat Cupcake being racist or was this another case of the PC police getting out of hand?

I spoke to Anjelica Hayes, the owner of Fat Cupcake, about it.
