Jordan Brown: ‘Gay Pastor’ Drops Whole Foods Lawsuit Over Hate Cake Fake

Jordan Brown: Gay Pastor Drops Whole Foods Lawsuit Over Hate Cake Fake

Jordan Brown, the Texas pastor who sued Whole Foods after (so he claimed) a store employee wrote an anti-gay slur on a cake he ordered, is dropping his lawsuit and now says he was “wrong to pursue this matter.”

Jordan Brown made the initial allegations more than three weeks ago. The openly gay pastor said at the time that he ordered a cake with the phrase “Love Wins” on it and instead got a cake with that phrase and a homophobic slur on it.

Whole Foods has now dropped their counter suit after “the truth has come to light,” according to a statement from the company.

Jordan Brown said in a statement Monday morning that he was “wrong to pursue this matter and use the media to perpetuate this story.”

“I want to apologize to Whole Foods and its team members for questioning the company’s commitment to its values, and especially the baker associate who I understand was put in a terrible position because of my actions,” Brown said in his statement Monday.

Jordan Brown continued, “I apologize to the LGBT community for diverting attention from real issues. I also want to apologize to my partner, my family, my church family, and my attorney.”

Jordan Brown was represented in the initial lawsuit by Austin Kaplan. Whole Foods immediately fought back against the lawsuit when it was initially filed with a countersuit. The company released surveillance video showing Brown purchasing the cake and also said at the time that they stood behind their team member in the suit.

    This is funny and proves how a person does one thing is how they will do everything. Once you compromise your morals it is easy to be dishonest and compromise your morals in everything. Where’s the outrage?

      Would you mind clarifying your observation? It seems as though you are saying since he is a homosexual it means nothing about his life is honorable.

    There were two solid clues this was a hoax:

    1. The “Love Wins” was written along the border of the cake which made no sense because you do not leave the center naked unless it was requested by the customer.

    2. In the first video he released he immediately made the claim of something like “You can see the box is still sealed from the store.” If you are truly a victim of discrimination you generally do not have the forethought of being accused of being deceitful unless your actions were deceiving.

    The fact he spent more energy on trying to prove his claim with a “sealed box” over the alleged bigotry simply showed he was expecting to be called a liar.

    The horrible aspect is how people will use this to claim homosexuals are not trustworthy. You can have numerous cops on video beating and killing unarmed citizens but that is just a case of a “few bad apples” (only if your orchard is the Milky Way) but someone lying about homosexual bigotry means all homosexuals are horrible.

    tell the GAY pastor to give up his profession and its people like him that is hurting this country, his job is to unite not divide.
