    Portland bakery is accused of racism for selling 'very troubling' Oreo cupcake called 'Mr President'
    A bakery has been accused of racism for stocking an Oreo cupcake called the 'Mr President'.
    Fat Cupcake in Portland, Oregon, has come under fire for the controversial pastry.
    A customer of the newly-opened bakery complained about the name online, saying they were so offended by it they would stop shopping there.

    Fat Cupcake in Portland, Oregon, has been accused of racism for stocking an Oreo cupcake called the 'Mr President'
    'Very troubling. They were serving a cupcake called the "Mr President" that had an Oreo cookie inside,' Don P wrote on Yelp.
    'When I tried to point out the racism implied, they claimed that "our current president loves Oreos".
    'I won't be doing business with them and please do not support racism in Portland or anywhere.'

    The furious reviewer also said the bakery had a treat called 'The Intern' - a cake with 'blue icing and a cream filing'.
    The store's owner, Anjelica Hayes, hit back at the allegation when asked about the 'racist' cake.
    Hayes told Oregon Live she has been asked about the cake 'so many times', but stressed she is not at all racist.

    The name of the Oreo cupcake has since been changed from 'Mr President' to 'The Professional'

    The bakery's (pictured) owner, Anjelica Hayes, denied the accusations of racism over the Mr President cupcake
    'I myself am black... I just thought it was an honorary name,' she said.
    'What sounds like it would be really fancy? We thought of the presidential office.
    'I thought I'd be honored if someone named a cupcake after me.'
    She also said a customer once told her the Oreo was President Obama's favorite cookie, and said it was a 'cool coincidence'.
    Hayes is active in the Portland community, and started the 'our 'Piece of Cake' group that involves people driving around the city to give cupcakes to homeless people.
    The cupcake had its name changed, and it is now sold as 'The Professional'.

    Ironically, if the owners were white the place would have been forced to close already.

    I'm a half-beaner who loves Almond Joys and Mounds due to the COCONUT content.

    I cry when I eat them.

    The PC police at it again. The name Fat Cupcake is offensive to overweight people. Better have a #fatlivesmatter protest.

    There is no sense if your going to keep giving yourself "rep repairs" at 5,000 a pop.
