Many of the widely reported “hate crimes” have turned out to be fake. Here they are.



by The-Truth-Fairy

This post is not to downplay actual hate crimes. These are disgusting acts that have no place in modern society. However, the media will latch onto reports of hate crimes, many of them fake, and they usually blame the incidents on White Trump supporters. There are a lot of people out there who crave attention. The demand for hate crimes, particularly ones committed by White Trump supporters, is much higher than the actual supply, so many of them had to be faked. This post is an attempt to set the record straight on many of these stories that turned out to be fake.

Openly-gay Pastor admits he lied about a Whole Foods incident that caused a public outcry, claiming that a cake he bought at Whole Foods was decorated with a homophobic slur. The company also released a statement saying that it reviewed security footage and determined that Brown had tampered with the cake. He later said “The company did nothing wrong. I was wrong to pursue this matter and use the media to perpetuate this story. I want to apologize to Whole Foods and its team members for questioning the company’s commitment to its values, and especially the bakery associate who I understand was put in a terrible position because of my actions.” http://www.businessinsider.com/pastor-drops-lawsuit-against-whole-foods-2016-5
