(Scroll down for video) Whole Foods announced that they are countersuing a pastor who is suing them for discrimination.
30-year-old Jordan Brown of Austin, Texas, filed the lawsuit after claiming that he ordered a cake from Whole Foods and asked that they write the words “Love Wins” with icing on the top.
However, he said that when he received the cake, it read: “Love Wins F*g.”
Brown released a YouTube video, showing the cake with the homophobic slur. He claimed that he did not open the box and he showed that the seal was not broken.
Brown, who is openly gay and the founder of the Church of Open Doors, decided to sue Whole Foods.
However, the company said that after reviewing surveillance videos along with Brown’s video, they determined that Brown had tampered with the packaging.
The store surveillance video showed that the clerk at the checkout counter scanned the price on top of the cake, but in Brown’s video, the barcode was at the side.
Whole Foods responded by countersuing Brown for $100,000.
They also released their surveillance footage, showing Brown in an orange shirt checking out, and the sticker is clearly seen on top of the cake.
