Starbucks has issued an apology after two uniformed law enforcement officials were denied service in Riverside, California.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department announced that two of their deputies were refused service on Thursday, the police department tweeted. Sheriff Chad Bianco tweeted Friday night that the “anti police culture repeatedly displayed by Starbucks employees must end.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“There is simply no excuse for how two Riverside deputies were ignored,” Starbucks spokesman Reggie Borges said, according to ABC7. “We are deeply sorry and reached out to apologize directly to them.”
Starbucks spokesman Jory Mendes said:
“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 our remorse. This language is offensive to all law enforcement and is not representative of the deep appreciation we have for police officers who work tirelessly to keep our communities safe.”

We are aware of the “cop with no coffee” incident that occurred in Riverside on 12/12/19, involving our @RSO deputies. We are in communication w/ @Starbucks Corporate addressing the issue of deputies being denied service. #copwithnocoffee #starbucks

The @Starbucks shenanigans is fascinating to me because the city my husband works in has a Starbucks that does support the officers and even holds the Coffee with a Cop event. Unpopular opinion: it’s not every Starbucks just like it’s not every cop.
