"How To Steal From Whole Foods" was a satirical article written on Thought Catalog in November 2014 by Everipedia and Rap Genius Founder Mahbod Moghadam about techniques to steal from Whole Foods Market.  The article was met with much criticism from venture capitalists Mark Suster and Jason Calacanis. 
On November 17, 2014 - Mahbod's 32nd birthday - Whole Foods Global Litigation Counsel John Hempfling threatened to permanently ban Moghadam from every Whole Foods Market location in the world if Thought Catalog did not take down the article. The article was promptly taken down, even though it was satire, because Mahbod loves Whole Foods. [✔] However, the archived version is still available.
