    AUSTIN, Texas (KEYE) — An Austin pastor says a cake he ordered from Whole Foods last Thursday had a homophobic slur written on the top when he received it.

    The attorneys for Pastor Jordan Brown say he ordered a cake from the Whole Foods store on Lamar Boulevard with the personalized message "Love Wins," but when he received it said "Love Wins Fag".

    In a YouTube video, Pastor Brown says he didn't realize what it said until he got into his vehicle. In the video he shows the box containing the cake was still sealed. Brown says when he told store management what happened they said their employee did not do it, and no action would be taken.

    Whole Foods released the following statement regarding Pastor Brown's claim:

    Our 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. We stand behind our bakery team member, who is part of the LGBTQ community, and the additional team members from the store, who confirmed the cake was decorated with only the message "Love Wins."

    They have cameras, if he is lying he can expect a lawsuit from whole foods. Good job dude.

    Lets say it was true, how is it the company's fault as opposed to the individual responsible?

    As though Whole Foods corporate would endorse a "fag" cake...

    Another attention starved douche that has to lie to garner sympathy and pity for a "cause". How many times have we seen this now?

    The tears are a great touch, though. So oppressed and misunderstood. :hswitch:

    My question- He says he noticed when he got into his vehicle. Why not start filming right there instead of taking it home first?

    I'm not totally convinced he's lying, but I don't believe for a second the decorator put that on there. This cake was either left where another customer gained quick access or another employee did it on the sly. If they do have cameras, it will be interesting to see what transpired.

    Plus, anyone who gets "Love Wins" put on a cake is kind of a fag.

    Its just a misunderstanding. After decorating the cake, the "team Member" signed it just as any artist would.

    I've never ordered a cake from Whole Foods. Does anybody know if it's possible to carefully peel open those labels and reseal them without it being noticeable?


    Time to call in the FBI cake writing expert from Quantico. :)

    Me either, but assuming it's like other bakery labels I've seen- Maybe a hairdryer could be used to peel it back without making it totally obvious (but I think it would still leave telltale signs upon close examination) or it's possible the label wasn't pushed down around the box and the dude saw it as a prime opportunity to pull something like this.

    I wonder if he ordered in a very specific color. Otherwise, how would he know what color to use to match? Even the slightest difference will be a dead giveaway in person.

    Yeah, I hate that we're going all CSI on this nonsense, but it should be fairly easy to determine if the icing used to write "fag" is the same as the icing used for the rest of the lettering.
