EDMONDS, Washington -- Ken Bellingham, owner of Edmonds Bakery, says he's "unapologizing" for the "Build the Wall" cookie he sold last week.
A patron, Ana Carrera, saw the cookie and took a picture of it, and sounded off, upset about what Bellingham initially called a joke.
"There's nothing funny about racism or racist ideals + policies," Carrera said on Facebook.
Bellingham told KOMO-TV he does support border security but would not go as far as to say he supported a wall.
In the end, he said his decision to sell the 'Build the Wall' cookies was a business decision, rather than a political one.
"People should lighten up," said Bellingham.
The controversial cookies are now being sold by the dozen.
