WTF, Starbucks?

Starbucks, which plans to solve all of its racism issues by closing down for half a day, is back in the news as a California customer says the coffee chain wrote a slur on his cup.

A guy by the name of Pedro (he asked that his last name not be released) ordered a couple of cups at a Starbucks in La Cañada Flintridge and received both with the word “beaner” on the cup where one would normally find their name.

“It’s something racist used to offend Latinos,” Pedro said in the interview with Telemundo 52.

Pedro says Starbucks offered a $50 gift card after the incident – which he called an insult.

Not sure how Starbucks is going to fix what is clearly a ton of issues in their stores – but, while they try to figure it out, what do you say we all just visit local, independant coffee shops for a while?
