Pastor Claims Whole Foods Bakery Decorated Cake with Anti-Gay Slur
Whole Foods in Austin, Texas is dealing with quite the dilemma since local pastor Jordan Brown insists that the cake he ordered was messed with. After asking the bakery department to write, “Love Wins” on the cake, Brown claims the word “fag” was written below, indicating an anti-gay slur.
Brown even made a video to support his claim.

However, Whole Foods is fighting back with legitimate evidence that proves Brown may be the real suspect who tampered with the cake.
They issued a statement that read, “The team member wrote ‘Love Wins’ at the top of the cake as requested by the guest and that’s exactly how the cake was packaged and sold at the store. Our team members do not accept or design bakery orders that include language or images that are offensive. Whole Foods Market has a zero tolerance policy for discrimination.”
Soon after, security footage was released to show the bakery employee’s innocence.

“After reviewing their security footage of Mr. Brown, it’s clear that the UPC label was in fact on top of the cake box, not on the side of the package. This is evident as the cashier scans the UPC code on top of the box, which you can view here,” the statement read.
The scandal doesn’t end there. Whole Foods is actually planning on suing Brown for his apparent slander against the company.
So who’s the real perpetrator? To be continued I guess…
Until then, props to this guy for addressing the real issue.
