PHOTOS: Gay/Straight BFFs Have Best Prom Ever, Despite Walmart Cake Controversy

Going viral certainly has its upsides.

Jacob and Anthony’s modern day prom bromance had the internet feeling all the feels. Which meant Ellen wasn’t far behind with an oversized check (two, actually).

And with cash in hand, Janthony was ready to have the best prom ever, and Teen Vogue made sure it’d be one to really remember.

They picked out some sharp attire:

The only hiccup came in the form of (what else?) a minor cake controversy.

Anthony’s Aunt went to the Las Vegas Walmart to get a cake to surprise the boys. She wanted it to say “You’re gay, he’s straight, you’re going to prom, you couldn’t have had a better date,” but the store refused to write the word gay in icing.

She finally settled on “You matter, prom kings,” which is much less fun than the original.

A local news station reached out to Walmart to find out what happened. Fox5Vegas reports:

“…a spokesperson said that after investigating the incident, it was discovered that proper management wasn’t contacted. They said nowhere in their store’s policy does it say the word ‘gay’ can’t be written on a cake.”

Why’s it always got to be a cake?
