Tempe, Arizona, police officers asked to leave local Starbucks, prompting an apology

ABC News

Six Tempe, Arizona, police officers were asked to leave a local Starbucks on the Fourth of July because a customer said the officers were making them feel uncomfortable, prompting an outcry on social media and an apology from Starbucks.

“Don’t appreciate Starbucks asking our Temp cops to leave on 4th of July 2019,” The Tempe Officers Association posted on Twitter. “Several of those cops are veterans who fought for this country! #ZeroRespect” 

After that, the hashtag #DumpStarbucks trended on Twitter.

Reggie Borges, a Starbucks spokesman, told ABC News that the store and the officers have “a really good relationship with the Tempe police department,” and that the cafe often hosts ‘Coffee with a Cop’ events to cultivate the relationship in the community.

He said that Starbucks has submitted a formal apology to the Tempe Police department as well as a sit down with Police Chief Moyers to rectify the matter.

“When something like this happens — if there was something we did that doesn’t align with our mission and values — we address it. I’m glad we had that line of communication with the Tempe Police Department,” said Borges.

He said that everyone involved in the incident was white.

The Tempe location was among the Starbucks cafes that briefly shut its doors last year for bias and diversity training. That followed an incident in Philadelphia, in which two black men were arrested at a Starbucks in an incident that was caught on video and went viral.

    What does being a veteran have to do with the 4th of july/ independence day? What does being white have to do with it?
    Cops represent oppression and tyranny so it makes sense that they made someone feel uncomfortable. Especially on independence day.

    Bet you’ll appreciate it even less once the sheeple figure out their treason and start dropping the scumbags like flies.

    The state of Indiana is doing everything they can to wake them up – if this doesn’t do it, I don’t know what the hell would…

    Bahahahahahaha! Why the F*%k do they have to include that statement? Who the hell care what race they are?

    Typical MSM bullshit bringing in race just to create a problem.

    “that the cafe often hosts ‘Coffee with a Cop’ events to cultivate the relationship in the community.”

    Well there’s your No. 1 problem right there. Like inviting someone to have coffee with a criminal.
