Starbucks apologise for 'Satanic symbols' drawn on woman's coffee

For one schoolteacher, it was the coffee run from hell.

A WOMAN IN the US has received an apology from Starbucks after complaining that a worker had drawn ‘Satanic symbols’ on her coffee.

Schoolteacher Megan Pinion was shocked to find on receiving her order last Sunday that a pentagram and the numbers 666 had been drawn in caramel on the foam.

In a Facebook post that has since been removed, Pinion said she could not name her server as she was so appalled on seeing the coffees that she couldn’t look him in the eye.

The star is almost OK because it is in your Starbucks logo, the 666 however was quite offensive. I am in no way judging his beliefs or dis-meriting his beautiful artwork. I am however judging his lack of professionalism and respect for others.
I am a teacher in the public school system and if I were to present a child of atheist or pagan believers with a Christian art project I could be sued in a heartbeat. I am of Catholic faith and would love to share in my beliefs daily. Fortunately I have enough common sense to present myself with professionalism and follow an ethics code.

Speaking to local Louisiana news website The Daily Advertiser, a Starbucks spokesperson said they had apologised to Pinion:

We reached out to her through social media and apologised. We’re taking the complaint seriously. We’re not sure who served her or what kind of beverage it was.

The spokesman also said the incident may change Starbucks’ policy on coffee foam art.
