A GAY cake shop owner was called a “p**fy pr**k” in a hate-filled anonymous letter saying his hands “shouldn’t be near any food.”
Michael Burns, 51, was sent the abusive mail by a customer asking for a refund at Special Days Cakes in South Lanarkshire, Scotland.
The anonymous letter was handed to an member of staff yesterday morning – and cops have launched a hunt for the writer.
It read: “Dear p**fs. If I had known that you are a f***ing gay then I would have given your shop a wide berth.
“I will be returning to get my money back as I don’t want any of your hands near any food. You should be shut down.”
Michael told the Daily Record: “When I first looked at it I thought it was a joke, but then it sunk in and I thought I’m not taking this lying down.
“My husband was more upset than me and we thought we have to try and find the culprit.
“We can’t think of anyone who would send a letter like this, I’m lost for words. I’ve never received anything like this in my life.
