Teen buys every cupcake from bakery after getting fat-shamed


An Indiana woman got the last laugh in response to a woman who fat-shamed her at a Valparaiso bakery.

Vega Blossom wrote on her Facebook page that she went to Designer Desserts last Saturday to take advantage of a sale of all the baked goods in their store. As she waited in line behind a customer who "took FOREVER getting her cake," Vega said a woman behind her in line became impatient and speaking rudely about the situation.

"I ignored it until the lady in front of me left and as I walked up to the counter the lady turns to her friend and says, "Thank God. Now lets hope this fat b**** doesn't buy all the cupcakes," the 19-year-old wrote.

She said she initially went to the store to buy six cupcakes, but instead, bought them all.


The Facebook post has been shared more than 25,000 times since Saturday evening. The bakery even wrote their own response, supporting Vega's response to the woman's criticism.

"It's a cupcake shop, if it wasn't for all of us thick 'n juicy Americans who love to indulge in sweets, I wouldn't have a business," the bakery's owner wrote. "So please, if you are the one who made these remarks, unlike my page and please buy your cupcakes elsewhere, and for anyone else who feels it necessary to be so uncouth, please take your business elsewhere, as we will ask you to leave if we hear things like this."

Vega, who said she took her surplus of sweets to co-workers and family for Easter, posted Thursday that Designer Desserts has delivered cupcakes to her work the past two days.

"I am honestly so thankful for these guys and everything they have done for me," she wrote.

Vega told an Australian news agency she has heard snide comments about her weight before and isn't usually bothered by them, but the blatant remarks in the bake shop struck her differently.

"I swallowed the hurt and thought of the best possible thing I could do back to them that wasn’t horrible, but that would teach them a lesson about respecting others," she said.

As for the icing on the cupcake - so to speak - Vega said she got one more shot in as she left.

"I looked the pair straight in the eye and asked, 'Could you please open the door for me? My hands are a bit full'," she told news.com.au.
