‘Racist’ cupcakes banned from French pastry shop

A bakery in the French Riviera has been banned from displaying cupcakes of a naked man and woman made out of dark chocolate – because they were inciting ‘racial hatred’.

The ‘God’ and Goddess’ cakes, which topped with the chocolate figures of a naked, plump man and woman with pink lips and protruding genitalia, were deemed offensive by a French court after a complaint by a shocked resident.

A judge concluded that treats – sold in a ‘boulangerie’ in the town of Grasse, Nice – showed ‘two people of colour in grotesque and obscene attitudes’, adding they violate ‘human dignity, especially that of the African people or people of African descent’…

    I think they are awesome and the store should produce in all other colors. Maybe they should just ban chocolate in France.

      There’d be more for us if the did!

    Until recently pastry shops in Montéal used to sell what were called Les “têtes de négre” ( n***er heads). They were dark chocolate balls sprinkled with bits of curly shaved chocolate.

      Believe those dessert balls are called “truffles” and are usually a Xmas treat. The pastry shops must have been using a fad name to sell the dessert all year round.

    Interestingly, the sight of a black person never makes me think of chocolate, or vice versa.

    Montréal pastry shops used to also sell what were called “Les Pêtes de Soeur ( nuns farts). They were filled with a rich, brown chocolate custard that would ooze out when you bit into ’em.

    And yes, even the nuns used to eat them.

      Actually they originated in France and were still sold there when I was in university in France.

    “racist”, does it even mean anything anymore? More proof we are circling the drain on this planet.

  • roccolore

    Once again, they cater to the “victims” aka Black Muslims

  • canminuteman

    Make them out of white chocolate and see if you get the same reaction.

  • Alain

    Oh the nerve of the baker for not using white chocolate.

    You see worse any time on Wud Stah videos, I believe they call them beasts or rachetts now.

    I agree wholeheartedly with the courts.

    • TotallyPeeved

      Will you agree with the courts when they deem old white people to be worthless and are to be exterminated forthwith?

    I want a pair of those. I’d call them Rastis and Mandy.

    Baker: “He has now made a defamation complaint against CRAN, and said the use of dark chocolate is ‘technically necessary’ to model the figures, which he said were cartoons.” I hope he gets a good lawyer and wins.

    When I was a kid every one called Brazil Nut ni@@er toes.

    My daughter was in that pasty shop about 2 months ago and at that time they had naked black shapely ladies made out of chocolate. Nothing happened then so I think it is the fact that these chocolates are out of shape that makes them “racist”! 🙂
