Starbucks Apologizes After Barista Writes Offensive Words On Order
The customer found the tag on the Grande White Chocolate Mocha he ordered Friday from a branch of the coffee chain in St. Augustine, Florida, ABC news reported.
But the beans-for-brains barista apparently had no clue that the man had a family history of the illness — so the joke fell flatter than a bad cappuccino, according to the station.
“2 of my sisters are diabetic, so…not funny,” the man, who asked not to be named, shared on Facebook.
The large version of the drink contains 59 grams of sugar — more than double the amount contained in two regular-sized Snickers bars.
“Starbucks strives to provide an inclusive and positive experience for our customers, and were disappointed to learn of this incident. We are working directly with the customer to apologize for his experience, and with our partners (employees) to ensure this does not happen again,” a company rep told the network.
