Atheism News: Aaron Klein, the owner of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, just doesn't know when to quit. On Feb. 14, 2013 the man at the center of a civil rights discrimination investigation made inflammatory comments with his Facebook profile in regards to the coverage of his behavior over the past couple of weeks. This is a breaking story not yet in the media, because this breaking news happened right on the Chelsea Hoffman: Case to Case fan page -- where Aaron Klein let loose with slanderous accusations against the writer of this story even though he knows he has a massive audience right now.
"Lying is not a good attribute for a so called journalist. You have never tried to contact sweetcakes or anyone that owns or works there. Let the record show that the page was faked and you are maliciously trying to promote your own agenda by stating otherwise," said Aaron on the page.
First of all, it's a convenient excuse to claim your online actions are the result of a "spoof account" or "hack," but the big mistake Klein is making in his acknowledgement of this very notorious screenshot, is accusing me of faking them directly. As this Examiner.Com post very clearly spells out, the screenshot had already been making its rounds on social networking sites for several hours before I decided to write about them. Also, it was blatantly stated that contact was attempted between the owners of the bakery and myself, but they kept deleting their contact details and deleted their page. This screenshot of an email sent to their alternate profile shows that contact was made.
So instead of confirming or denying that he had made these comments in the first place, Aaron Klein has resorted to committing slander online with (once again) his Facebook profile. To be clear, this appears to be a pattern, as noted by this Examiner.Com post. The owner of Sweet Cakes by Melissa now claims that he didn't make those comments, but wouldn't it had been easier for him to do this in the first place instead of behaving so abhorrently?
I've reached out to Aaron Klein again to ask him why he refused to answer about the screenshots in the first place, choosing to attack later -- but to no surprise, he was not available for comment. In the meantime, this World Mag source is covering the case and has explained the precedent of discrimination suits in cases like these. It's only a matter of time before the Kleins find out where discriminating against homosexuals gets their business. Perhaps in time the owners of this cake shop can learn to operate a business instead of attacking writers on Facebook who are only exposing their true behaviors.
