Customer slams Starbucks barista for giving ‘coffee with “PIG” written on it’ – Today News


 A police officer trying to buy his colleagues Starbucks coffee was stunned when he was handed a cup labelled with the word ‘PIG’  Oklahoma police chief Johnny O’Mara said one of his officers went to the Starbucks in Kiefer to get five cups of coffee for his dispatchers who were working on Thanksgiving   He was left ‘gut-wrenched’ when a customer pointed out the label on the cups to the officer, according to KTUL  O’Mara called the store and was told ‘they’d be happy to ‘replace the coffee with a correct label’  But he said the chain had a track record of anti-police incidents and did not accept a new label   Instead, the police chief decided to take it to Facebook and share the picture of his hot chocolate with the ‘PIG’ label  He wrote: “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  “This cup of coffee for a ‘pig’ is just another little flag.  “That’s really gut wrenching, especially knowing that these cups were going to dispatchers  “These people are there waiting for 911 calls to come in.”  The officer went to the branch in Glenpool to pick up five drinks and found the word printed on all the cups   The barista has been suspended ‘pending the outcome of our investigation’, Starbucks told Fox News  Jory Mendes, a Starbucks spokesman, said the incident “is absolutely unacceptable ”  “We are deeply sorry to the law enforcement officer who experienced this.  “We have also apologized directly to him and we are working to connect with the police chief as well as to express our remorse  “This language is offensive to all law enforcement and is not representative of the deep appreciation we have for police officers who work tirelessly to keep our communities safe ”
