Pastor Jordan Brown, who in April, filed a lawsuit against grocer Whole Foods Market, for an alleged anti-gay slur written on a cake he purchased, has announced that he has dropped his suit and apologized for his actions. A statement issued by Brown said, in part, “I want to apologize to Whole Foods and its team members for questioning the company’s commitment to its values.”
Additionally, Brown apologized to the LGBT community, his congregation, his partner and his attorney.
Whole Foods Market launched a counter-suit against Brown for $100,000 in damages.
Whole Foods responded to Brown’s apology by saying, “We’re very pleased that the truth has come to light. Given Mr. Brown’s apology and public admission that his story was a complete fabrication, we see no reason to move forward with our counter suit to defend the integrity of our brand and team members.”
