Pastry shop apologises, insists it has utmost respect for morals police
A pastry shop in Saudi Arabia has offered its apologies after one of its employees made a cake that reportedly denigrated the moral police for tailing an open truck driven by a woman and transporting women.
Social media in Saudi Arabia, where women are banned from driving, promptly decried the cake and users said that it was making fun of the highly respected members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice who were depicted as using a van to chase the all women truck.
However, Saadeddine Sweets board member Omar Saadeddine said that they deplored the incident and that they fired the employee who conceptualised and made the controversial cake.
It was an individual act by an employee who prepared the cake as requested by a female client, he said in remarks carried by local news site Sabq on Tuesday.
The company was not involved and we conducted a probe that resulted in firing the man who made it and the employee who took a picture. We do condemn this act even though he explained that he had acted in good faith and with good intentions.
The company said that it did not normally accept such orders and that all employees regretted the lapse.
We are fully committed to our religion and values and we fully reject the slightest attempt to denigrate the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice for whose members we have the utmost respects, Omar said.
Well, it’s not like he made a boob cake...
He’s lucky they didn’t cut his hands off..
Geeze, whether it be a gay wedding cake, or a cake making fun of the “morals police” why all the government interest in cakes all of a sudden?
Is it some “new world order” thing?
