Co-owner of Freeport Bakery, Marlene Goetzeler, who posted the image, said she wasn’t expecting such a strong reaction.

“First, I was shocked, then I was surprised and then I was like, ‘Well, you can’t make everyone happy,'” she said.

Goetzeler said she deleted the negative comments, not wanting “the Facebook page to become a big drama.” She added that most of the feedback has been positive, and that some people have even come into the bakery to voice their support in person. She said she is grateful for that support.
