Texas Bakery’s Pride Cookies Sparked Backlash, Now Customers Are Lined Up Down the Block

With one Facebook post, Texas bakery Confections proved that love tastes better than hate.

The bakery based in Lufkin, Texas unveiled some celebratory treats on Facebook, posting a photo of their heart-shaped cookies iced with the rainbow colors of the pride flag. The caption read, “More LOVE. Less hate. Happy Pride to all our LGBTQ friends! All lovers of cookies and happiness are welcome here!”

However, Confections’ message of equality didn’t go over well with everyone. In a Facebook status later that day, the shop revealed that their page had not only lost a “significant” amount of followers but that they’d received a “hateful” message canceling a large order of cookies. The order was due the following day, meaning that the cookies had already been baked and decorated.
