Starbucks barista writes ‘Pig’ on police officer’s cup | Fox News

Starbucks apologized on Thanksgiving after one of its baristas wrote “Pig” on the label for a police officer’s order.

An Oklahoma Starbucks apologized on Thanksgiving after one of its baristas wrote “Pig” on the label for a police officer‘s order.

Kiefer Police Chief Johnny O’Mara shared a photo of the insulting cup handed to one of his officers, who purchased the beverages on Thursday morning in Glenpool, just south of Tulsa, as a kind gesture for the dispatchers on duty.

STARBUCKS SHOP BOOTS POLICE OFFICERS BECAUSE CUSTOMER ‘DID NOT FEEL SAFE’ AROUND THEM: REPORTS

“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 has been suspended “pending the outcome of our investigation,” Starbucks told FOX 25 Thursday night.
