Oklahoma Officer Gets a Starbucks Cup With the Word ‘Pig’ on It
Try to do something nice on Thanksgiving and this happens.
I'm always skeptical on doing these stories were someone allegedly wrote something on someones receipt. This, without a doubt happened. This is on the printed labels that Starbucks puts on the side of their cups. This happened yesterday at the Starbucks in Glenpool, Oklahoma.
A member of the Kiefer police Department decided to go into that location and buy some coffee for his fellow officers on duty on a Holiday. The officer was about to go about his day, when he noticed the labels had 'Pig' written on them. He called the manager and was told he could come back in. They would simply reprint the labels if he wanted. Not the kind of response they wanted to hear. Starbucks released the following statement on the situation.
This is absolutely unacceptable and 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. The barista has been suspended pending the outcome of our investigation into this matter. 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.
The officer who received one of the cups was told by the employee who allegedly did this, it was meant as a joke.
