Kayla Hart walked into her local Starbucks with her support for President Donald Trump on full display.
In what should have been a simple coffee purchase, Hart was criticized and laughed at.
Per Daily Mail:
A woman went into Starbucks to get an iced tea and walked out feeling humiliated.
Kayla Hart went to her local Starbucks in Dilworth, NC wearing a t-shirt in support of President Donald Trump and was bullied by her barista, she claims.
Hart describes that the staff laughed at her and wrote something on her cup which offended her:
Hart says when she walked into the coffee shop the cashier laughed in her face.
Instead of getting her name on her cup as is the custom at the widely popular chain, she got a political message instead. In place of her name her cup label read ‘BUILD A WALL’ on her venti green iced tea.
The laughing caused Hart to feel humiliated:
‘I don’t know what politics has to do with getting a cup of coffee,’ Hart said. ‘I just walked out because everyone was staring.’
‘I just found it really sad that I can’t wear a t-shirt with our president without being made fun of,’ Hart told Fox 46. Her shirt read ‘Trump for President 2016.’
She has voiced her concern to Starbucks management:
Hart immediately emailed Starbucks customer service. Starbucks released a statement regarding the event.
Kayla says shes not trying to get people to stop going to the coffee chain, but wants people to be aware this type of behavior is happening.
[It] read: ‘We failed to meet this customer’s expectations of us, and we have apologized and are working directly with her to make it right.
‘We have spoken with our store partners about this situation and are using this as a coaching opportunity for the future.
‘I just want it to be put out there so people know this is what’s occurring,’ Hart added. ‘I don’t think it’s right you should be humiliated for wearing a t-shirt with your opinion on it.’
