We’re starting to wonder if being insensitive or ignorant is a requirement for new Starbucks employees. Though the specialty coffee shop is usually under fire for some racially-focused incident, this time one of its classier baristas went after someone with a disability.
According to a Facebook post compiled by Tan Lekwijit, his friend Sam, who has a stutter that pops up occasionally, was mocked by a barista at a Philadelphia Starbucks location. When the 28-year-old University of Pennsylvania graduate ordered his ice coffee, his stutter slipped through. When he went to give his name, he stuttered through it - and the barista was sure to make fun of him for it.
