A Texas man claims he got a taste of hate in the form of a Whole Foods cake with a homophobic slur on it.

Austin pastor Jordan Brown filed a lawsuit against the grocery chain Monday alleging he asked a bakery employee to write “Love Wins” on a pre-frosted cake last Thursday and was shocked when he peered inside the box's clear top at a stoplight and saw “Love Wins F--” instead.

“This is discrimination,” Brown says in a video posted online Monday by his law firm.
