BATON ROUGE (WGNO) – A Louisiana schoolteacher who received Starbucks coffee with “666” and what looked to be a pentagram written in the foam is now speaking out.
Megan Pinion told WBRZ Tuesday she stands by her decision to report the incident and is not seeking attention.
On Sunday, Pinion posted a photo of her coffees. She wrote, she was “appalled” to see the symbols, which are typically associated with Satanism or pagan beliefs.
Starbucks has apologized.
“Megan, we’re quite concerned and we’d like to learn more. Please call us at 1-800-782-7282, and reference case 14224370. Alternatively, you can email details to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, and we look forward to hearing from you,” Starbucks commented on Facebook.
“We have sincerely apologized for her experience. This obviously is not the type of experience we want to provide any of our customers, and is not representative of the customer service our partners provide to millions of customers every day,” Starbucks said in a formal statement.
Pinion said she always had great service at the Baton Rouge Starbucks.
“My greatest concern was professionalism and the possible effects it could have if done again to someone who could react far more aggressively than I have,” she told WBRZ.
