Starbucks Forced to Apologize When Philly Barista Refuses to Let Policeman Use Restroom

A snot-nosed liberal Starbucks barista told a Philly cop to get lost when he wanted to use the store’s bathroom. Now Starbucks is forced to apologize yet again for being un-American.

The story is going viral on Facebook, too.

A Starbucks in downtown Philadelphia was at the center of controversy on Tuesday when a story was posted to Facebook revealing that a “liberal” clerk recently refused to let a city police officer use the restroom.

On his Facebook page, officer Joe Leighthardt, a Sergeant on the Philly force, posted the frustrating experience of one of his fellow officers. It wasn’t long before thousands of comments built up on Leighthardt‎’s post.

The officer, who remains nameless, told Sgt. Leighthardt about his mistreatment by the barista at the Starbucks at 1301 Chestnut Street, saying, “This is the world cops live in anymore. It’s hip for this generation to berate and totally disrespect cops in front of the public and praise cop killers as the heroes of they’re [sic] time.”

Leighthardt‎’s post elicited a quick apology from Starbucks which posted that this clerk’s behavior “is certainly not in line with the experience we want any of our customers to have in our stores. We are taking all necessary steps to ensure this doesn’t happen in the future.”

The full story, as posted to Leighthardt‎’s Facebook page, reveals the original officer’s growing frustration….
