    UPDATE: "Drunken Negro Face" Cookies On Sale at Greenwich Village Bakery

    [UPDATE BELOW] At at a time when any decent baker should have been selling racially harmonious black and white cookies by the truckload, one Greenwich Village bakery popular with celebrities and shows like Sex and the City has outraged neighbors by selling a "Drunken Negro Face" cookie in, um, "honor" of President Obama. [Video below.] A shocked customer tells My Fox NY that Ted Kefalinos, proprietor of Lafayette French Pastry, asked her, "Would you like some drunken negro heads to go with your coffee? They're in honor of our new president. He's following in the same path of Abraham Lincoln; he will get his."

    UPDATE: We just spoke with Kefalinos on the phone and he remains utterly oblivious, telling us, "This whole thing was blown out of proportion." He says he's sold out of the "Drunken Negro Cakes" and doesn't plan to make anymore, despite the fact that many customers have been requesting them (he claims). When asked whether he understands that most African-Americans find the word "negro" offensive, Kefalinos explains, "It's a French word. It comes from the French."

    Community Board 2 was quick to call for a boycott of Lafayette French Pastry, to which Kefalinos responds, "I'm sorry they feel that way because I was trying to do a nice thing." Not seeming to grasp in any way the degree of outrage he's sparked, he added, "I did it and that's the end of it and it's over."

    UPDATE 1/24: Now Ted Kefalinos apologizes: "Seriously, from the bottom of my heart, it was an innocent design I created. It was nothing more than just a piece of art."

    Why even post this RW? Are you TRYING to cause dissention on this board? Isn't that called TROLLING?

    What...did you have a couple of brews with Harry last night? This isn't even worth commenting upon. But obviously I chose to comment on your motives.

    Which are?

    I would have preferred "wimpy Italian phony mafia faced cookies on sale" given the location of the bakery. But that's just me. :D

    Cuz I think the cookies are in poor taste. Just like Piss-Christ was absolutely retahded, albeit the free choice of the artist in question, I think these cookies, and the name given, are ridiculous, and insulting. It's art though!

    I only wanted to point out how "art" is no excuse for stupidity, and ignorance.
