“Ace Of Cakes” Duff Goldman Steps Up For Lesbian Couple Stiffed By Bigoted Baker

Not long after news surfaced that an Oregon baker was refusing to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple, Ace of Cakes star Duff Goldman stepped up and offered to make the women the cake of their dreams.

In January, master baker Aaron Klein told the couple that his company, Sweet Cakes, was declining their business—and called them “abominations unto the Lord.” His actions violate Oregon’s anti-discrimination laws, but rather than wait for this to drag out in court, Goldman went on HuffPo Live and told host Mike Sachs he’d make their wedding cake for free—and even bring it all the way from his bakery in Los Angeles to the women out in Portland.

“This guy’s an idiot,” Goldman tells Sachs about Klein. “For a cake decorator to feel like he really needed to take a stand…it makes no sense, It’s petty, it’s small.”

      Is that an intentional play for Goldman Sachs?? If so, I liked it. Almost as much as I like Duff for being so awesome. Not only did he say he would make the cake, but he’s actively calling out the guy for his douchery, baker to baker. I love it.

      Makes me want to check out his TV show. The Oregon bigot should be out of business.

      ?”Klein says, “they’re making a choice to do what their doing, I’m making a choice to not be a part of it,” trying to make a libertarianistic case for his choice to refuse service, but it requires little imagination to extend that logic uncomfortably far. So far that discrimination is the basis rather than a pitfall of the market, where the provider is as or more important as the product, and so on.”
