The Hoaxer Who Couldn’t Shoot Icing Straight: Whole Foods Anti-Gay Cake Claim Demolished
From my latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:
My favorite hilarious take on the Whole Foods Homophobic Hate Hoax is the Twitter-posted photo of the pepperoni pizza with the word “FAG” superimposed on the image in fake blue icing. “This isn’t the pizza I ordered,’ tweeted the poster, who calls himself Sleepy Poptart. (Trigger warning: some of the reply tweets are kinda NSFW.)
It’s about time that one of those phony hate crimes that almost invariably turns out to be the handiwork of the self-styled victim got laughed out of the court of public opinion.
And even better, the Whole Foods Market in Austin, Texas, promptly filed a $100,000 counter-suit against an openly gay pastor who had posted a video claiming that a Whole Foods employee had added the word “FAG” to the center of a cake that Brown had ordered bearing the gay-rights slogan “LOVE WINS” in squeeze-inscribed blue icing. The Austin American-Statesman reports:
“Whole Foods also released its security footage video from its North Lamar Boulevard flagship store that it says contradicts the man’s claims that the store included the slur on the ‘Love Wins’ cake he ordered.”
