Gay Pastor claims he received a Cake with a Anti-Gay Slur on it


In Austin, Texas, a Whole Foods is being sued for an insensitive slur on a Birthday cake.

Pastor Jordan Brown said that he ordered a cake from Whole Foods with the message “Love Wins”. When he got the cake it said, "Love Wins, Fag".

Pastor Brown, who's openly gay, was stunned. He and his lawyer contacted Whole Foods about the cake. However, the store said there was no proof that someone from their store would do something like that. Later, Pastor Brown reached out to Whole Foods’ corporate office, but didn't hear from them for three days.

With the lack of action from Whole Foods, Pastor Brown decided to sue. Whole Foods released this statement:
"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."
Here's Pastor Brown's video on the incident
