A Chicago bakery’s planned drag show and brunch is at the center of controversy this week after the shop’s owner reported receiving a barrage of hateful threats and police prepared for planned protests of the event.

Worried staffers at UpRising Bakery & Café in Lake in the Hills met with police Wednesday night. . “This is a family-friendly environment and when we opened I vowed to always make it family friendly,” the cafe’s owner, Corinna Sac, told NBC Chicago. “The intent was to take a fun event like a drag show and make it family-friendly,” she said.

What she didn’t expect was the hate-filled reactions she would receive on social media, with many upset at the decision to allow children at the event slated to be held this weekend.
