Starbucks Prints “PIG” on Cop’s Coffee Cup — Apology NOT Accepted

(KTUL Tulsa) A coffee cup is going viral after a Kiefer police officer bought some Starbucks for his dispatchers only to see the word “PIG” printed on the cups.

It was a quick trip to get coffee that left Kiefer Police Chief Johnny O’Mara with a bad taste in his mouth.

His officer stopped by a Starbucks in Glenpool to grab five cups of coffee for all his dispatchers working on Thanksgiving.

But when the officer picked up the cups the word “PIG” was printed on them.

After seeing the cups that officer called Chief O’Mara, so he called and spoke to the manager.

He says they offered to reprint the cups if the officer brought them back, which was not the kind of apology the chief was looking for.

Jory Mendes with Starbucks talked with us and gave us this statement on the incident:

“This is absolutely unacceptable and we are deeply sorry to the law enforcement officer who experienced this. We have also apologized directly to him and we are working to connect with the police chief as well as to express our remorse. The barista has been suspended pending the outcome of our investigation into this matter…”

As for Chief O’Mara it seems his officers wont be stopping by the store again.
