Pastor Jordan D Brown claimed to have gotten this awful cake from Whole Foods. He shared a picture of the cake with the statement:

That’s not the cake I ordered, @WholeFoodsand I am offended for myself & the entire community

He also got a lawyer, and filmed this "unboxing" video as proof that the cake had not been tampered with. 




Whole Foods, a notably progressive grocery store chain, has countered with a thorough investigation. They are now suing the pastor in regard to his claim, which they believe to be false. According to Uproxx, Whole Foods issued this statement:

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.

We stand behind our bakery team member, who is part of the LGBTQ community, and we appreciate the team members and shoppers who recognize that this claim is completely false and directly contradicts Whole Foods Market’s inclusive culture, which celebrates diversity.

Whole Foods also released a video showing Brown and the cashier while the cake was being purchased where neither one seemed to notice the odd wording on the cake.

Saima Ahmad, a law student in England, decided to practice what she's been learning when she bought an ate a KitKat that was missing that tasty center wafer part. 


As she told Yahoo! News, she has written a letter of complaint to Nestle demanding a refund and adequate compensation for the mishap.  Citing "monetary and emotional" loss, she has asked for a lifetime supply of unlimited KitKats and says she would consider taking further legal action if her demands are not met. It may sound unrealistic but she has said, “I’m trying my luck, if you don’t ask you don’t get.”  So hopefully she isn't really expecting unlimited candy bars.

Production assistants who worked on blockbuster films such as 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' who were in charge of parking are now suing Paramount Pictures and other associated production companies. 

The suit claims that they were not allowed to leave their assigned locations, which led them to start keeping "bottles and buckets" in their vehicles for any inevitable bathroom breaks. 

On top of that, they claim that in cold weather they had to leave their cars running continuously but were never compensated for it.  And they had to work 60-100 hours a week regularily while being paid a flat rate of $150 a day without overtime. They were also not given food on set during their 12-hour-on-average days. 

The suit is an attempt by the PAs to get compensation for such poor working conditions.

Dude, really?

A Siberian man apparently lost his job, his friends, and his wife after playing Fallout 4 for three weeks straight, and now he wants $7,000 for "emotional distress" from Bethesda and the game's Russian localization firm. Sigh.

The man claims he had no idea how addictive and all-encompassing Fallout could be, saying, "If I knew that this game could have become so addictive, I would have become a lot more wary of it. I would not have bought it, or I would have left it until I was on holiday or until the New Year holidays." His addiction supposedly also caused him physical duress, as he was not eating or sleeping regularly during his Fallout binge. The case has not yet made it to court, but the man has secured a lawyer willing to take it on.
