Garments in Lufkin, Texas, announced Thursday that they will sell rainbow cookies. The bakery, located in East Texas, soon faced its decision.
Confectionery appeared on Facebook to reveal that many of his customers had sent hateful messages and canceled orders, claiming that his “likes” were also falling sharply.
“It was difficult today. Really difficult,” a June 3 Facebook post said. “We lost a significant number of followers because of the rainbow cookies we published. On our business page we received a very hateful message canceling a large order (5dz) summer cookies for tomorrow morning (that we just finished decorating) because of the rainbow heart cookies we posted. “
According to Tyler, Texas, a subsidiary of CBS KYTX, by Friday Confections were flooded with messages of support from across the United States, including Mark Cuban̵
“When things slow down a bit, let us know if shipping is possible. I would like to support you,” Kubanets said, according to KYTX. “If sending is not possible, I will buy it by phone / email and you can donate my cookies to a local LGBTQ organization or children’s charity.”
Photos posted on social media show that people flooded Confections’ bricks and mortar. At the end of the day, Confections announced that it had sold out all its inventory.
The ready-to-wear clothes opened briefly on Saturday and sold their inventory again. According to the Confections team, several customers have offered to donate money instead of buying cookies because there is nothing left in the store. Co-owner Miranda Dolder announced that the funds would be sent for local animal rescue.
An Instagram post from Confections confirmed that customers have raised more than $ 600 to save Blue Collar Mutts.
The bakery plans to create a donation schedule to send cookies to nursing homes and charities after Father’s Day.
