Summary: After his hoax was exposed, a gay pastor has dropped his lawsuit against Whole Foods. 

The lying Austin pastor who accused Whole Foods of writing a slur on his cake has dropped his lawsuit. This doesn’t come as a surprise to those following the case as revelations had emerged, disputing his original claim.


In April, pastor Jordan Brown went to the flagship Whole Foods in Austin, and he requested a white frosted cake that said “Love Wins” in blue frosting. The openly gay pastor claimed he was shocked when he left the store and saw the cake said “Love Wins Fag.” In his lawsuit, he said that he had contacted the store manager who was unwilling to make things right.

Brown had also created a Youtube video showing the hate-cake. He said the cake was sealed, and there was a label on the bottom of the box.

But Whole Foods said they would never discriminate. They stuck by the team member who made the cake, and that team member turned out to be gay himself. Whole Foods’ legal team dug up Brown’s financial history, finding he had major money problems. But the bombshell of bombshells in this case was a surveillance tape of Brown paying for the cake. In the video, he and the cashier appeared to see the top of the cake, not noticing a problem; and the cashier appeared to scan the label, which was on the top.

Whole Foods fired back at Brown with a counter-suit; and after one month, Brown buckled under the pressure and dropped his suit. Brown issued an apology to Whole Foods and acknowledged that he had made the whole thing up.

Being a class act kind of business, Whole Foods dropped their counter-suit.

“We’re very pleased that the truth has come to light. Given Mr. Brown’s apology and public admission that his story was a complete fabrication, we see no reason to move forward with our counter suit to defend the integrity of our brand and team members,” a Whole Foods spokesperson said.

Brown was represented by Austin Kaplan of Kaplan Law Firm. According to Fox, Brown no longer preaches at The Church of Open Doors, an LGBT congregation in Austin.
