Texas Pastor Says Whole Foods Wrote Homophobic Slur On Cake

An openly gay pastor and founder of a Texas church says he was targeted at Whole Foods after a bakery employee allegedly wrote the homophobic slur “f***t” on his cake.

The New York Daily News reports:

A Texas man claims he got a taste of hate in the form of a Whole Foods cake with a homophobic slur on it.

Austin pastor Jordan Brown filed a lawsuit against the grocery chain Monday alleging he asked a bakery employee to write “Love Wins” on a pre-frosted cake last Thursday and was shocked when he peered inside the box’s clear top at a stoplight and saw “Love Wins F–” instead.

“This is discrimination,” Brown says in a video posted online Monday by his law firm.

In the video, the openly gay founder of the Church of Open Doors displays the cake with its offensive blue lettering tucked inside a box sealed with an unbroken Whole Foods sticker.

Brown says the intact seal and his receipt from the flagship Austin store prove his story.

In a statement to the Daily News, Whole Foods denied its bakery employee had any role in writing the bigoted block lettering.

“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,” the company said, adding it has a “zero tolerance policy for discrimination.”

Brown’s lawyer called the statement “outrageous.”

“My client doesn’t have blue icing in his house. This is not a hoax. He received the cake this way, and Whole Foods’ response doesn’t help us,” lawyer Austin Kaplan told The News.

SMH…surely this man of the cloth isn’t making up a story for a lawsuit riiiiight??? Whole Foods is now threatening to take action against him.
