Off-Color Remark Lands Ice Cream Maker In Hot Water By Ben Popken
The CEO of a 100-year old Montana ice cream maker has offered to resign after he made what was perceived to be a racist remark on the company's Facebook wall.
The brouhaha began when a self-identified Muslim customer asked on the Facebook page if the Wilcoxson Ice Cream contained pork in the gelatin used to make it.
We don't deliver outside of Montana, certainly not Pakistan, CEO Matt Shaeffer wrote back.
The customer replied that the comment was rude for assuming he lived in Pakistan. Underneath the customer's name on Facebook it says that he lives in Sheridan, Wyo., an area to which the wholesale ice cream maker does deliver.
Shaeffer told NBC News he is sorry for what happened. It was never intended to offend, he said.

I guess this is what passes for news on NBC.
OH MY GOSH... shut that company down and nuke every last trace of their existence!
How alien cultures are changing the US! The effects of unlimited immigration Muslim and non-Muslin that clash with the cultures of western civilization that even a century-old ice cream maker must now toe the culturally sensitive PC line.
And yet if the polls are correct Obama is on course for a second term. Go figure.
Basically, we’ve become a nation dominated by 3 year-olds.
My response to a muslim who wanted to know if my ice cream contained pork would be, “ it does now”
I woulda told them that we rely heavily on PORK products!!! So what if a few muzzies don’t eat your ice cream?
So, he thought the message came from Pakistan and he said they don’t deliver to Pakistan. Some real racism there.
Dear NBC: Our President lied to us to coverup his incompetence that resulted in the deaths of at least six Americans. Who decides the priorities for your news stories? A guy saying that his business doesn’t deliver ice cream to Pakistan is news? Wow. You win the Emmy for DOING THE MOST TO HIDE AND IGNORE ALL PROBLEMS WITH THE DEMOCRATS. Bravo, NBC, bravo. Well-earned.
Racist remark? Is Pakistan a race?
So it isn’t a religious insult, it is a racial insult, weird.
The fact that America is so changed that there is no “we” anymore, that we can’t even make a harmless joke about some exotic, foreign land on the other side of the world, is weird also.
In case you weren’t aware, Jews also don’t eat pork. Would you reject their business also?
Islam isn’t a “race.”
But President Omoslem is 44% Arab.
50% White (via porn-mag Mother).
And 6% Black.
If I had a restaurant, I’d make sure every dish had peanuts, pork, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, wheat gluten, soy lecithin, milk, and eggs. Did I miss anything?
I’d clearly say so on the menu.
how is there any racism in that?
So how could this man's remarks have been racist?
Amazing how everyone is behind these dumb comments. Both Muslims and religious Jews avoid pork products. Why alienate anyone if you are running a business. A simple yes or no would have sufficed.
What bothers me is how the CEO could be such a wimp. If he thinks his remark will cost him any significant business he is totally wrong. Tell ‘em to go to hell.
