Roommates, Starbucks employees often butcher names when taking orders, but some just don’t care to put a name at all! One Oklahoma barista is now standing on the unemployment line, after they decided to write ‘PIG’ on a police officer’s coffee cup.

According to the New York Post, the barista has been terminated for printing the word on the officer’s cup, but an Oklahoma police chief is asking Starbucks to reconsider it’s decision. He says the incident should be used as a learning experience.

“Just recently learned that the employee was terminated, and this may be a bit surprising, but I would like Starbucks to reconsider. It was a mistake,” police chief Johnny O’Mara said. “I am asking for civility.”

Some say the employee may have just been suspended, but O’Mara is not here for it either way! He says the employee should be given a fair shot at making things right without losing their job.

“We are hoping. that we can take this moment where a mistake was made and turn it into something that highlights the ability to be civil with one another,” he said. “That’s something that’s missing in a lot of society right now is he ability to be civil.”

Starbucks apologized to the officer and to police chief O’Mara in a statement saying:

“We are deeply sorry to the law enforcement officer who experienced this. We have also apologized directly to him and we are working to connect with the police chief as well as to express out remote,” Starbucks spokesman Jory Mendes said. “This language is offensive to all law enforcement and is not representative of the deep appreciation we have for police officers who wore tirelessly to keep our communities safe.”

As of now, the employee is without work, and chief O’Mara is working diligently to change that. He took to Facebook after the officer too the trip to Starbucks on Thanksgiving day.

“What irks me is the absolute and total disrespect for a police officer who, instead of being home with family and enjoying a meal and a football game, is patrolling his little town.”
