Baton Rouge, LA, United States (4E) – Starbucks has apologized to a customer served beverages with satanic symbols drawn on the coffee foam at a Baton Rouge store.
Starbucks called schoolteacher Megan K. Pinion by phone and apologized personally to her, according to the company’s social media team spokesman Tom Kuhn. The company also issued a statement saying the incident was not the type of experience Starbucks wants to provide its customers.
The apology came after Pinion posted on the Starbucks’ Facebook page the photo of the two coffees served her at the Mall of Louisiana outlet on Sunday. A star or pentagram, which is associated with the Church of Satan, was drawn on the coffee foam of one beverage while the number 666 was drawn on the foam of the other coffee. The number 666 refers to the Antichrist in the Bible’s Book of Revelations.
Together with the photo, she left a feedback calling the satanic symbols as lacking in professionalism and respect for others.
Pinion’s complaint went viral gathering likes from 1,800 people, who rallied behind her. She accepted the apology and thanked Starbucks for reaching out to her and saying sorry.
