oooooooooookay so this story baffled me.
i don’t understand get it,
but maybe you will.
so an openly gay pastor,
by the name of jordan brown,
went to go get a cake that said:
…and ended up with a cake that said something different.
that’s the part i’m not getting.
check the story via the new york daily news so we can talk about it…
After a Texas pastor sued the grocery chain for giving him a cake that read “Love Wins F–,” Whole Foods is fighting back, calling the homophobic slur on the dessert a hoax.
Now in a counter-lawsuit, the company is suing Jordan Brown for $100,000, claiming he made the whole controversy up.
“We believe his accusations are fraudulent and we intend to take legal action against both Brown and his attorney,” the company said in a statement.
The chain released surveillance footage from the incident, showing Pastor Brown picking up the cake at the Austin Whole Foods, clearly looking through the transparent packaging, without noticing the homophobic slur during the checkout.
The Austin pastor said in his original lawsuit he had noticed the slur after taking a peek at a stoplight.
Whole Foods also pointed out the baker behind the cake was part of the “LGBTQ community,” adding that Brown’s lawsuit was “completely false and directly contradicts Whole Foods Market’s inclusive culture, which celebrates diversity.”
The barcode for the cake was also on top of the packaging during checkout, but later in Brown’s video, it’s shown to be on the side and bottom corners.
Brown, an openly gay founder of the Church of Open Doors, originally filed the lawsuit against the national food company for discrimination and asked for unspecified damages on Monday.
“Pastor Jordan spent the remainder of the day in tears. He was and is extremely upset,” the lawsuit said. “It is impossible to calculate the emotional distress these events have caused.”
Brown’s lawyer, Austin Kaplan, did not reply to requests for comments. On Monday, he told the Daily News the homophobic slur was not a hoax.
“My client doesn’t have blue icing in his house,” Kaplan said. “He received the cake this way.”
well i hate to say it,
but i think he is a liar.
so he is trying to tell me…
he went and bought a cake,
it had a clear packaging on the top,
and he didn’t see the word “FAG” on it?
now my thing is,
what is his motive tho?
why do this?
he isn’t very smart because:
2. a baker who will be questioned
3. the “scheme” is coming off sloppy
he is attractive…
…but he might also be crazier than a shit house rat.
well if he loses this case,
he will more than likely be banished from pastoring again.
nothing better than an ex pastor!
i’m trying to see a possible “truth” for him,
but i’m coming up blank.
so i have to ask the foxhole…
Do you think he is telling the truth?
lowkey: whole foods has the best coconut oil for your hair.
just an fyi…
