Albertson’s Refuses to Make Teen’s “Trump 2016” Birthday Cake
BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA)
A Facebook post shared by a Bossier Parish teen is getting a lot of attention.
It reads, “Just left Albertsons. The woman behind the cake counter just refused to make me a birthday cake because I wanted Trump 2016 on it. Did that really just happen.”
The cake is for the Benton girl’s 18th birthday party, and the post has been shared now more than 150 times.
“I was just venting on Facebook when I made the status that I made, I didn’t think I was going to get as much attention as it did,” explained 17-year-old, McKenzie Gill.
Gill’s excited about voting in her first Presidential election. Not only does she want to share that excitement with her friends, Trump 2016, is the theme for her upcoming party.
“Trump is just someone I really look up to,” said Gill.
When she and her Mom went to order her cake at Albertson’s on East Texas Street in Bossier City, they weren’t expecting the reaction they got.
“We just need an American flag cake with Trump 2016 on it, and right when I said Trump the lady just (makes face) kinda Trump? And she was like I can make you a flag cake but I’m not going to write Trump on it,” explained Gill.
