Someone Sliced Away the Pride Flag from Sugar Sweet Sunshine
It’s not all rainbows for Sugar Sweet Sunshine.
Already contending with a spate of garbage dumping on its doorstep, the sweets shop just lost its Pride flag in an apparent hate-driven action. It appears someone snipped the rainbow gay pride flag from the storefront of 126 Rivington Street. We’re told that it had hung here for two years until yesterday morning.
“Someone felt the need to slice our pride flag with a knife last night,” the popular bakery wrote on Instagram yesterday afternoon. “It’s the WHY someone would do this that’s disturbing.”

Seriously? Do we have to bring EVERYTHING into our store at the end of the night??? Someone felt the need to slice our #pride flag off with a knife last night. I know in the grand scheme of what’s going on in our city these days, this isn’t monumental. We can and will get a new one but that’s not the point. It’s the WHY someone would do this that’s disturbing. @sssbakery @nycmayorsoffice @whatisnewyork @nypd @lodownny @boweryboogie @nycedc @gothamists
