You could do this non-destructively.

 

If you want to really cut:

The text needs to be outlined (Type > Outline Text)

Apply Offset Path (Object > Path > ...) to the line. The function will make a copy of the path.

The outlined text might be a group, then the pathfinder will produce unexpected results, so ungroup it.

Then select the g and the fat line and use the button subtract in the pathfinder pnel.
