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.

From the probiotics aisle to the vaguely ridiculous Organic Integrity outreach effort (more on that later), Whole Foods has all the ingredients necessary to give Richard Dawkins nightmares. And if you want a sense of how weird, and how fraught, the relationship between science, politics, and commerce is in our modern world, then there's really no better place to go. Because anti-science isn't just a religious, conservative phenomenon—and the way in which it crosses cultural lines can tell us a lot about why places like the Creation Museum inspire so much rage, while places like Whole Foods don't...
...I invited a biologist friend who studies human gut bacteria to come take a look with me. She read the healing claims printed on a handful of bottles and frowned. "This is bulls**t," she said, and went off to buy some vegetables.
