Lufkin, Texas. In honor of Pride Month, a bakery named Confections made specially created rainbow cookies.
Dawn and Miranda are the two sisters and co-owners behind the Confections bakery.
They proudly shared the photos of their beautiful heart-shaped cookies on their social media accounts, never expecting that an act of inclusion would end up hurting their business big time.

On June 3rd, Dawn and Miranda took to Facebook to share some heartbreaking news. They ended up losing a ton of followers on social media because of their Pride Month treats.
Not only that, their business took a hit when a customer canceled a huge order that they had made for 5 dozen cookies.

“We received a very hateful message on our business page canceling a large order (5dz) of summer-themed cookies for tomorrow morning (that we just finished decorating) because of a rainbow heart cookie we posted,” the Facebook post explained.
