An Oklahoma police chief is asking Starbucks to have mercy on a barista who plastered “PIG” on a police officer’s coffee order.
“I just recently learned that the employee was terminated, and this may be a bit surprising, but I would like Starbucks to reconsider,” Keifer, Oklahoma, Police Chief Johnny O’Mara told Fox News. “I’m asking for civility.”
O’Mara took to Facebook Thursday after one of his officers made a Thanksgiving coffee run as a treat for the department’s dispatchers — and came away with the insult.
