Jordan Brown, a pastor in Austin, Texas, has come forward with the lawsuit and press conference (above) after he claims a Whole Foods employee allegedly wrote 'f*g' on a cake he'd ordered — after he had only requested that 'Love Wins' be written in frosting on the cake!!
Here's the NSFW cake in question (below):
Brown, who is gay, claims that he never noticed the writing on the cake until he'd left the store and was in his car sitting at a stoplight.
Then, he says he immediately called Whole Foods' corporate offices and left a voicemail, but nobody returned his call.
He then called that particular store directly and spoke with a manager who indicated he'd fire whomever was responsible for the alleged bigotry.
But when the man called Brown back two hours later, the pastor alleges the manager told him Whole Foods employees had done nothing wrong — and wouldn't be punished.
Incensed, Brown took his case to a law firm, prompting Whole Foods to release a very strong message about the alleged incident:
"Our team member wrote 'Love Wins' at the top of the cake as requested by the guest, and that's exactly how the cake was packaged and sold at the store. Our team members do not accept or design bakery orders that include language or images that are offensive. Whole Foods Market has a zero tolerance policy for discrimination. We stand behind our bakery team member, who is part of the LGBTQ community, and the additional team members from the store, who confirmed the cake was decorated with only the message 'Love Wins.'"
Wow — so somebody isn't telling the truth here… and Whole Foods absolutely doubled down in believing their employee ahead of Brown!
This could become really big -- and it sounds horrifying.
KeKe Palmer is accusing performer Trey Songz of 'sexual intimidation,' among other things, after she randomly appeared in his newly released music video for Pick Up The Phone that was released on YouTube on Friday.
From what we can gather reading Palmer's passionate Instagram message that contained the accusation, it appears she did NOT give Songz consent for her to appear in the video -- but the Scream Queens star takes it even further than that.
It is scary and potentially triggering to read, but here is her full, emotionally-charged IG message about what led up to her non-consensual appearance in the video and the hints about how she was forced into it (below):
