Read previewA San Jose bakery has slammed Tesla after a company employee placed a massive pie order for Black History Month, only to cancel it after the Black-owned business scrambled to meet the request, according to multiple reports.
Voahangy Rasetarinera, the owner of The Giving Pies, wrote on Instagram that Tesla "hurt my small Black women-owned business" through the last-minute cancellation.
According to Rasetarinera's account, on February 14 a Tesla company representative called her and asked for 2,000 mini pies to be delivered by the following week.
But that evening, the representative called back and doubled the order — setting the bakery rushing to ensure it could meet the demand, Rasetarinera wrote.
Rasetarinera said in a February 2 post celebrating Black History Month that she is of Madagascan heritage.
