We're all on board for spreading awareness of female genital mutilation, just not in cake form.
This large cake shaped like a black woman was reportedly commissioned by Swedish culture minister Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth. The cutting of the cake was supposedly to symbolize cutting the clitoris. And the worse part was that they hired a male headpiece to scream with every slice. You can watch the entire spectacle below (Warning: loud audio)
It didn't take long for the “art installation” to be deemed more of a “racist spectacle.” According to The Local, many are now seeking for the culture minister’s dismissal. Adelsohn Liljeroth has since defended her actions for ordering the atrocious cake, saying the anger should be directed at the cake’s artist, not at her, and claiming the situation was “misinterpreted.” “Art needs to be provocative,” she said.
