Whole Foods Market plans to take legal action against a customer who claimed a bakery employee wrote a gay slur on a cake he purchased from its flagship Austin, Texas, store.
Jordan Brown, a pastor at the Church of Open Doors in Austin, claimed a cake he bought had a gay slur written in blue icing.
But Whole Foods said in a statement Monday the slur had not been written by the employee, who "is part of the LGBTQ community."

On Tuesday, after further reviewing the case, the chain announced it believes Brown's "accusations are fraudulent and we intend to take legal action against both Mr. Brown and his attorney."
