Dominique Ansel Staff Threatened by Crazed Cronut Fan

New, 2 comments

Things got rough at Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City today: According to Cronut inventor Dominique Ansel, "someone actually threatened our staff physically." Ansel tweeted more details: "You know those scenes where a gang member pushes around and innocent pedestrian? Kinda like that."

Ansel kicked the troublemaker out, acting as the bakery's "bouncer." (He also functions as "barista, professional bagger, plumber, electrician, and chef.") Sadly, it does not come as a total surprise that things on the epic Cronut line got out of hand. Beyond violence, the croissant-doughnut hybrids have already inspired scalpers, shameless copycats, tears, and vegan rage.
