Starbucks Suspends Okla. Barista Who Wrote 'PIG' On Police Officer's Cup

An on-duty Oklahoma police officer made a decision to drop by Starbucks on Thanksgiving Day to buy drinks for his department's 911 dispatchers who were also working shifts on the holiday in the town of Kiefer. "I'm asking for civility".

The verified Facebook account for the Seattle-based coffee chain responded to O'Mara's viral post within hours. According to a report, the Kiefer police officer went to pick up five cups of coffee.

A senior law enforcement officer from Oklahoma was outraged after receiving a hot beverage with the word "pig" printed on it on November 28. Starbucks officials said they will be meeting with Kiefer police officials to discussing ways to work together, including a jointly hosted event that will allow local law enforcement to meet with baristas and community members "to discuss the critical role dispatchers and police offers play in keeping our communities safe". "As a side note, I called the store and was told they'd be happy to "replace the coffee with a correct label.' The proverb 'Fool me once, shame on you".

"What irks me is completely the and entire disrespect for a police officer who, in its build of being dwelling with family and playing a meal and a soccer game, is patrolling his minute town", Chief Johnny O'Mara acknowledged in a Fb post that included a notify of the "Pig" espresso cup.

He believes the coffee shop should refrain from making social commentaries and "just pour the coffee". The station said the word was printed on all cups.

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 apologised directly to him and connected with the Chief of the Kiefer Police Department as well 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".
