Where's the Accountability for Phony Hate Crimes?

If a Christian baker refuses to work with a customer based on religious grounds they can be sued and their business destroyed. When a PASTOR LIES about a hate crime what penalty does he face?

Here's the story from Texas. A pastor buys a cake at a Whole Foods Market in Austin claiming that the message on the cake was an offensive slur.
Brown made a video, showing the cake and making the accusation. He also filed a lawsuit, seeking damages. The lawsuit claimed Brown was in tears after the incident, and it is “impossible to calculate the emotional distress that these events have caused.”

His lawyer also told the media that Brown was concerned that if he didn’t raise a fuss, someone else might go through “a similarly excruciating experience.”

Then, last week, more than a month after his purchase, Brown admitted the whole thing was a hoax.

He was right about one thing. No one should have to go through such an excruciating experience.

Especially when a pastor is perpetuating it.
Shouldn't this man be held accountable for threatening the livelihood and reputation of employees at the Whole Foods bakery? I hope the store sues but as all too often happens they may be intimidated into silence. If they do so they simply encourage another faker to scream "hate" where none exists.

Hate crime hoaxes are nothing new. It's a tried and true tactic among left wing activists. Why, if hate is so prevalent in this country, do left wing activists have to LIE about it? But like other examples cited below, this is just another where the left puts their rights above those of others. Only now, it's the right to LIE!
