Yeah, something about this story just doesn't seem right. Wouldn't it be traceable back to the the worker that made the cake? Plus, there is concrete evidence that is traceable too. It makes no sense. Plus, why would the cake person do it in the first place considering he or she would likely lose their job?
BTW, don't eat that cake, because it is filled with homophobia.
From the Blaze.com, ((Pastor Jordan Brown of Church of Open Doors in Austin, Texas, is claiming that the cake ended up reading, “Love Wins Fag,” and he’s now taking action, turning to the Kaplan Law Firm in Austin to bring his grievance to the courts. ))
And, we discovered that Brown wants to sue Whole Foods for it. If I received this offensive cake, I'd post it on the internet and talk about it, but I wouldn't seek a legal payout for it. That just seems a little suspect to me.
From theBlaze.com, ((“Pastor Brown never asked for this to happen,” attorney Austin Kaplan said in a statement. “He continues to be overwhelmed by the feelings of pain, anguish, and humiliation because of this incident.” ))
Yes, but why would he then post a video on it if he was humiliated by the incident? He wanted a hashtag crusade and attention. Wouldn't you check the cake before getting in the car? Once in the ca, wouldn't you take it back?
Whole Foods has come back swinging and counter-sued Mr. Brown claiming he made it up. From CBS, ((Mr. Brown admits that he was in sole possession and control of the cake until he posted his video, which showed the UPC label on the bottom and side of the box," the statement read. "After reviewing our 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." ))
Then Whole Foods made a clever hashtag to counter Brown's claim with a photo. I think the win goes to Whole Foods.
I hate these false (allegedly) reports because it takes away from actual real homophobic incidents. We know those do happen, but people are less likely to side with them due to these get rich schemes.
I guess he tried to have his cake and eat it too...Yes I am sorry about the pun, but it fit here.
