dirtbags.jpgThe latest episode of the totally boring Cake Boss (with Buddy Valastro of Carlo's Bakery) had a trans-mocking scene in which a cast member flirted with RuPaul's Drag Race contestant Carmen Carrera before it was revealed that she was a transgender woman. Quote Valastro: "That's a man, baby!" Cue controversy and a lame apology from Valastro on Facebook ("It was absolutely not my intention to upset or offend her, or anyone within the community..."). And now TLC pulled the episode. [Facebook, Gawker]
