Ohio Mother Offended By Cake Store's Racial Slur

Ohio grandmother, Ronell Tucker, was unhappily surprised when she saw what she felt to be a racial slur written on her granddaughter's birthday cake. Tucker said she ordered two cakes for the birthday over the phone from a local supermarket-- one was delivered as it was ordered.

The second cake misspelled the name of her 6-year-old granddaughter. Instead of the cake reading "LaMiya," it read "LaNiga."

LaMiya's mother, Ashley Hayes, said “I was very upset and angry and it felt like racism to me cause how do you get one cake wrong and one cake right. You had to notice the mistake."

Tucker added, “That was not right at all and it really upset a lot of people at her party and her." LaMiya's mother also said “All the other kids knew the words and they were like ooh they put that on her cake. We were all in shock."

They called to store in recourse and were stunned at the response. Hayes said “It's no mistake with a 'M' and a 'N' and a 'G' and a 'Y.' It's no mistaking. It really upset me."

The manager of Dave’s Super Market, Burt Saltzman, said “If you look at this 'M' could have been an 'N' and the 'Y' could have been a 'N'."

Saltzman did offer an apology and said the manager who first handled the complaint "could have handled it in a better manner." The family is now satisfied with the store's response and apology.
