Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Colorado Baker Who Refused To Bake Gender Transition Cake
Comedian Jimmy Kimmel mocked Colorado baker Jack Phillips on his show Thursday for refusing to bake a gender transition cake, adding that Phillips’s “whole life is gay.”
“Speaking of great people, remember that baker from Colorado who won the Supreme Court case after he refused to make a wedding cake for the same-sex couple? Well he’s back in court because of another cake he doesn’t want to bake,” he said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (RELATED: Kanye West Defends His Support Of Trump And Says Liberals Can’t Bully Him Into Changing His Mind)
“The Colorado civil rights division says [Phillips] has to bake it for them. And he doesn’t want to. Which is really funny,” Kimmel added. “Because this is a guy who spends all day, every day, meticulously designing flowers out of icing. His whole life is gay.”
Kimmel said Phillips might be worried about his own homosexuality coming out if he were to bake the cake and then made fun of his physical appearance.
“I don’t know if he’s worried the wrong cake might bring that to life or what. And I will add, this is Jack Phillips, the totally straight cake baker,” Kimmel continued. “You would think that someone who looks like the Reba McEntire version of Colonel Sanders would be more sympathetic to gender identity issues.”
