Starbucks Employee Causes Stir After Drizzling Satanic Symbols in Customer’s Drink
So, Starbucks is run by the devil after all… at least in Louisiana. The corporate coffee empire has issued an apology to a local schoolteacher after a Starbucks barista allegedly drizzled a pentagram and ‘666’ on the top of two beverages.
Louisiana teacher Megan K. Pinion contacted Starbucks through Facebook after her drinks were contaminated by Satanic caramel. “I unfortunately can’t give the young man’s name who served it, because I was so appalled that I could not bring myself to look at him,” Pinion writes. “The star is almost okay because it is in your Starbucks logo, the 666, however, was quite offensive. I am in no way judging his beliefs or dis-meriting his beautiful artwork, I am however judging his lack of professionalism and respect for others.”
Pinion continues, “I am a teacher in the public school system and if I were to present a child of atheist or pagan believers with a Christian art project I could be sued in a heartbeat. I am of Catholic faith and would love to share in my beliefs daily. Fortunately I have enough common sense to present myself with professionalism and follow an ethics code. Perhaps that could be suggested to that particular location.”
As Pinion’s Facebook post spread, it was eventually seen by Starbucks, who issued an apology to the teacher. “We’re taking the complaint seriously and have sincerely apologized for her experience,” Tom Kuhn, a Starbucks spokesman, tells the Huffington Post. “This obviously is not the type of experience we want to provide any of our customers, and is not representative of the customer service our partners provide to millions of customers every day.”
The Starbucks spokesperson, however, did not comment on the employee who allegedly drew the evil caramel topping. “We do not discuss details about individuals’ employment with our company,” says Kuhn.
