Does anyone in our society today face more discrimination than supporters of Donald Trump?
If you surveyed most Trump supporters, the likely answer would be “No.”
Louisiana news station KSLA reports that 17-year-old Trump supporter McKenzie Gill went to her local Albertsons grocery store this week hoping to get a birthday cake that had “Trump 2016” written on it. The cake was intended to celebrate both her 18th birthday and the fact that she’s going to be voting for Trump this fall.
However, the woman behind the counter told her that while she would make a cake with an American flag design, she wouldn’t write “Trump 2016” on it.
“The woman behind the cake counter just refused to make me a birthday cake because I wanted ‘Trump 2016’ on it,” Gill vented in a Facebook post after the incident went down. “Did that really just happen?”
She and her mother took her business elsewhere, and they issued a formal complaint to Albertsons. The grocery store apologized to the family and explained that its employee at the bakery believed that writing “Trump 2016” on the cake would violate the store’s policy of not using copyrighted phrases on its pastries.
“It’s your job, we’re not really going for your opinion on what you think of the candidates we were just wanting ‘Trump 2016’ on the cake,” Gill said of the woman who refused to make her cake.
