The Colorado baker who refused to bake a same-sex wedding cake strikes again.

After refusing to bake a cake celebrating trans woman Autumn Scardina’s birthday and transition, Jack Phillips, owner of the Colorado bakery Masterpiece Cakeshop, filed a lawsuit in federal court on 14 August. And now he’s receiving the support of actor James Woods.

Woods suggested Phillips is the victim of ‘targeted harassment’. The actor prompted his followers to support the Masterpiece baker through a GoFundMe page.

‘After winning a United States Supreme Court decision protecting his religious freedom, #JackPhillips of #MasterpieceCakeshop is now once again a victim of targeted harassment by the #left,’ he wrote.

‘If you believe in the #FirstAmendment, here is his #gofundme link,’ he also added, posting the link.

Phillips is seeking restitution for legal fees, as well as $100,000 in ‘punitive damages’.

‘It is expensive fighting a mob as a victim of targeted harassment, which this clearly is,’ he also tweeted.

Furthermore, Woods linked to a article. The author wrote the Colorado baker has received several orders challenging his Christian beliefs.

‘[T]he bakery received requests for cakes featuring marijuana use, sexually explicit messages, and Satanic symbols,’ the story reads.

‘One solicitation submitted by email asked the cake shop to create a three-tiered white cake depicting Satan licking a [sex toy].’

Phillips believes Scardina made all these requests.
