Baton Rouge Starbucks Barista Put Satanic Symbols In Customer’s Coffee Foam, Company Then Apologizes
A couple days ago in Baton Rouge, Megan Pinion visited the Starbucks in the Mall of Louisiana and when she received her order, she noticed satanic symbols on top of the coffee foam. One cup and a pentagram and the other had the number 666, the number of the beast, or The Antichrist.
Pinion was outraged and took their complaint to Starbucks' Facebook page:
I just purchased two coffees at your Mall of Louisiana location. This is how my coffee was served to me. I unfortunately can’t give the young mans name who served it because I was so appalled that I could not bring myself to look at him. 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. 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.
Starbucks social media team spokesman Tom Kuhn issued a forlam apology for her experience:
We have sincerely apologized for her experience. 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.
Her Facebook post was liked and shared via Facebook by approximately 1,800 people.
