2012_7_masterpiece.jpgLast Thursday, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood refused to take an order for a wedding reception cake for a gay couple, and now the shop is getting hammered on the internet. Its Yelp page has been flooded with almost 100 one star reviews from outraged Yelpers, there's a Facebook boycott, an online petition, and it's getting all kind of press from the gay blogs. Meanwhile, supporters of the bakery's owner, or at least his point of view, are out in force over on Westword. [Westword]
