The manager of an Oklahoma Starbucks where a police officer received a cup with the word “pig” scrawled on it says she was wrongfully terminated because the coffee chain “was looking for someone” to blame.
Lola Price, who worked at the Starbucks in Glenpool, said she was not the one who wrote the derogatory words on five coffees ordered by a local police officer on Thanksgiving Day, KTUL reported.
“This is what he gets for being nice,” O’Mara wrote in a Facebook post on Thanksgiving Day.
“The Starbucks partner who wrote this offensive word on a cup used poor judgement and is no longer a partner after this violation of company policy,” the company said in a statement.
“They, to make it seem like they were right on top of everything, which they are … they terminated me from my position with no cause,” Price told KTUL.
