UPDATE: Whole Foods Sues Gay Pastor Who Accused Chain of Putting Anti-Gay Slur on Cake
Gay Pastor Jordan Brown said he ordered a cake from Whole Foods with “Love Wins” spelled out on top but was given a cake with “Love Wins Fag” instead.
Pastor Jordan immediately called a lawyer and went to the press.
He lives in Austin, Texas, the most liberal city east of San Francisco.
Mike Cernovich at Danger and Play suspected the story was a hoax.
The media is reporting on yet another hoax, “A gay Austin preacher says he ordered a cake with ‘Love Wins’ from Whole Foods. He says he got ‘Love wins, Fag.’”
Although anything in possible in this crazy world, this story has all of the telltale signs of a hoax:
It fits a narrative. (Everyone hates gays.)
The “victim” hired a lawyer within hours.
The “victim” took his story to a friendly journalist.
The “victim” destroyed evidence.
The letters don’t match.
Add to the story some real life facts. Austin, Texas is the most liberal city outside of San Francisco, and Whole Foods is as left-wing as it gets. Do you really believe that an employee at a Whole Foods in a liberal city wrote Fag on a cake?
And then there’s this…
Whole Foods released a statement Monday saying the cake was prepared by a member of the LGBTQ community.

Today Whole Foods released video footage they say proves the gay pastor lied.
Grocery store chain Whole Foods is counter-suing an openly gay pastor in Austin who accused the store of putting an anti-gay slur on a cake he ordered last week.
Pastor Jordan Brown — a founder of the Church of Open Doors — sued the Austin-based chain Monday after he claimed the store put the slur on a cake he picked up from the downtown Austin store on April 14.
Whole Foods pushed back against Brown on Tuesday, promising legal action against the pastor and releasing security footage they say contradicts his claims.
“After a deeper investigation of Mr. Brown’s claim, we believe his accusations are fraudulent and we intend to take legal action against both Mr. Brown and his attorney,” the chain said Tuesday.
The grocery chain claims the bakery employee wrote “love wins” on the cake and that the message was visible through the clear portion of the cake’s packaging.
Guess what happened to the pastor’s attorney’s page?
