He’s dropped the case because Whole Foods released some surveillance footage that proves they didn’t do it.
Today I am dismissing my lawsuit against Whole Foods Market. 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. I apologize to the LGBT community for diverting attention from real issues. I also want to apologize to my partner, my family, my church family, and my attorney.
I literally cannot understand why people do this. It takes away from the very real problems that gay people have in this society. That poor bakery worker could have been fired if Whole Foods didn’t back up their employee as stridently as they did.
Whole Foods dropped their countersuit because of his apology.
