Starbucks Issues An Apology After Barista Scrawls ‘Pig’ On Police Officer’s Cup

The following article, Starbucks Issues An Apology After Barista Scrawls ‘Pig’ On Police Officer’s Cup, was first published on Flag And Cross.

A Starbucks in Oklahoma has issued a public apology on Thanksgiving to a local police officer after one of its employees wrote “Pig” on the cop’s cup.

Kiefer Police Chief Johnny O’Mara shared a photograph of the offensive cup that was handed to one of his officers who bought the beverages on Thanksgiving morning in Glenpool, a town south of Tulsa, for the dispatchers who were on duty.

Here’s more from Fox News:

“What irks me is the absolute and total disrespect for a police officer who, instead of being home with family and enjoying a meal and a football game, is patrolling his little town,” O’Mara wrote in a Facebook post that quickly went viral.

The barista who wrote on the officer’s cup has been suspended “pending the outcome of our investigation,” Starbucks said in their statement.

Starbucks offered to replace the coffee with the correct label, but Chief O’Mara wasn’t buying it, given the company’s previous track record of anti-police sentiment.

“The proverb ‘Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me’ came to mind,” O’Mara wrote.

Starbucks called the incident “totally unacceptable and offensive to all law enforcement.”

O’Mara agreed with the company and stated, “Our society needs a touch of old fashioned civility restored. Maybe we could use this bad event and convert it into something better.”

The Barista should have been fired. An apology from the boss is not enough.

The Barista was doing his best to follow Obama’s treatment of police. When he is being threatened, he’ll call BLM or Antifa for assistance.

Maybe Starbucks makes a good cup of coffee. I wouldn’t know since I can’t drink coffee. However, they have the absolute worse hot chocolate I have ever experienced. The first time I tried it I thought maybe it was an inexperienced server, so on a later occasion in a different location It was so watered down I couldn’t even taste the chocolate or any sweetness. That being said I have noticed starbucks has replaced the donut shop for cops. It is extremely stupid to pass up that much revenue with hiring ignorant rude and obnoxious employees. The same people that… Read more »

Apologies aren’t sufficient. The CULTURE of STARBUCKS is CORRUPT, from top to bottom!

I highly doubt that Starbuck’s would condone this behavior as they are in business to make money. Unfortunately, many of their employees are obviously liberal and not professional as they do not understand that one treats customers like royalty as they are one’s “bread and butter”. Without customers one does not have a job. it does sound like Starbuck’s needs to retrain employees on proper behavior and respect for those who buy from Starbuck’s, including the police. I will not hold the entire company responsible for 1 employees lack of professional behavior. I don’t drink coffee, therefore I do not… Read more »
