A Hong Kong bakery has received a less-than-conventional order for a custom cake: one depicting US president-elect, Joe Biden, as a handsy pedophile.
Villa Villa Cafe and Bar, located in North Point, posted a photo of the cake on their Facebook page on Tuesday. The cake is decorated with a picture of Biden creeping up behind a wide-eyed Anime-style girl, touching her shoulders and kissing her from the side.
“Warmly celebrate Uncle Biden for his election as the 46th US president,” the sarcastic lettering reads.
The cafe, which often shares political news on its Facebook page, is known to be a “yellow shop.”
The cake order, while unusual, is unsurprising. Supporters of the Hong Kong protests, who tend to favor US President Donald Trump due to his perceived hardline stance towards China, have latched onto rhetoric parroted by American right-wing media sources—including that Biden is a pedophile.
Activists who have stood up for Biden have been bad-mouthed by protesters claiming that he is pro-China, even though he tweeted his support for the Hong Kong movement last year and commended the demonstrators’ “extraordinary bravery” in “marching for the civil liberties and autonomy promised by China.”
