On Monday, a gay man named Jordan Brown claimed that he picked up a cake from a Whole Foods. The cake was supposed to celebrate same-sex marriage with the slogan “LOVE WINS.” Instead, Brown said, the Whole Foods bakery decided to rain on his rainbow, issuing him a cake with an anti-gay slur on it:
There was only one problem: Brown was apparently lying. Security footage shows that the UPC code on the cake was placed on the top of the box. Brown posted a video that shows the UPC label on the bottom and side of the box. Whole Foods released a statement:
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.”
Whole Foods then stated that they would look into filing a lawsuit against Brown and his lawyer.
This is, of course, a stupid idea for a hoax. Whole Foods is not merely pro-gay, they’re a mecca for granola leftists. Couldn’t this delightful fellow have scared up a Christian bakery to scam? This is just pure laziness.
This is hardly the first time a leftist LGBT person has hoaxed his or her way into the news. Here are ten other anti-LGBT hoaxes that media glommed onto, but which turned out to be as false as Ellen Degeneres’ straight persona:
1. The Anti-Gay Receipt. In 2013, a 22-year-old lesbian waitress named Dayna Morales posted a receipt which did not carry a tip, but did carry a message: “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle.” The waitress received thousands of dollars in donations. One problem: she faked the receipt.
2. The “Die F**” Hate Crime Attack. In 2015, 21-year-old Rick Jones said he was assaulted and that somebody cut “Die F**” into his arm at his family pizzeria. According to The Daily Caller, “Jones claimed his home was spray-painted and that somebody threw a Molotov cocktail through his bedroom window.” He, too, collected thousands of dollars. Unfortunately, police say Jones faked the attacks himself.
3. The University Of North Dakota Hoax. In 2015, Haakon Griswold told police that Lambdi Chi Alpha frat members at the University of North Dakota beat him up, choked him, and removed his clothes while subjecting him to anti-gay slurs. As The Washington Times reported, He said, “I just want those guys to learn from this. They could go to jail, sure, but they could go to jail and then come out with the same mindset that they don’t like homosexuals.” Police now say Griswold made the whole thing up – and not only that, but Griswold started the fight with the frat members. Naturally, prosecutors declined to file charges against him for political reasons. read more here
