A Starbucks Barista Labeled A Cop’s Order With The Word ‘Pig’, The Officer’s Daughter Says It’s Accurate

Things That Matter

A Starbucks Barista Labeled A Cop’s Order With The Word ‘Pig’, The Officer’s Daughter Says It’s Accurate

Starbucks

Kiefer Police Chief Johnny O’Mara, in Oklahoma, claimed Starbucks gave one of his officers a drink with the word “PIG” written on the label. Now someone alleging to be his daughter is saying that O’Mara is, in fact, a pig. The woman on social media who goes by @MissOMara says her father was a proud racist when she was growing up and should never have become a police officer. 

The incident began when O’Mara shared that five of the drinks he and his officers received had “PIG” printed on the labels. The police chief believed the event to be symptomatic of a larger culture that has adopted anti-law enforcement attitudes. Well, it appears his own daughter believes the sentiment is well-earned if her father is representative of the police. 

O’Mara’s own daughter calls him a pig on Twitter.

“This is my father and I’d like to say that he is absolutely a pig and I’d like to thank the brave men and women from Starbucks for their service,” she shared on Twitter. 

Her dismay did not end there, she elaborated on just why she felt her father was the true personification of swine.

“For the record, my father has 0 business being a police officer. He was blatantly, proudly racist when I was a kid. Said things I would never repeat,” O’Mara’s daughter said in another tweet. “He treats women like dogs, including his own daughter. Oink oink.”

The woman also claimed that others in the department were not as offended by the comment on the Starbucks cups. 

“The deputy it actually happened to told my mom he didn’t really care and that it was a harmless joke, no big deal,” she said. “But my father is a camera whore who couldn’t resist the attention.”

O’Mara’s daughter’s tweets were retweeted almost 90,000 times. She later tweeted that O’Mara notified her mother and urged her to delete the tweets. She still has not deleted the tweets in question. 

Many people shared their support of O’Mara’s comments, while Starbucks sided with the police chief. 

“My dad was the same! He used to brag about how good he was at covering bullet holes in the walls and nobody ever did anything because who’s going to call the cops on a cop?” One user wrote in response. “Eventually, he pulled his gun on the wrong person and, thankfully, got fired.”

The Starbucks barista has since been fired and the employee who made the labels called and apologized to the officer. When O’Mara heard the news he asked Starbucks to reconsider, instead calling for “civility.” 

“This is absolutely unacceptable, and we are deeply sorry to the law enforcement officer who experienced this. We have also apologized directly to him and are working to connect with the police chief as well to express our remorse,” Starbucks spokesperson Jory Mendes told News on 6. “This language is offensive to all law enforcement and is not representative of the deep appreciation we have for police officers who work to keep our communities safe” 

The incident garnered national attention when O’Mara blasted the barista in a Facebook post. 

O’Mara’s polarizing Facebook rant, which has since been deleted, caused a national stir. 

“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,” the chief wrote on Facebook. O’Mara claimed to be doing a thankless job where people viewed him as being a villain for doing “what’s right.”

“This cup of coffee for a ‘pig’ is just another little flag. It’s another tiny symptom and a nearly indiscernible shout from a contemptuous, roaring and riotous segment of a misanthropic society that vilifies those who stand for what’s right and glorifies the very people who would usher in the destruction of the social fabric. It’s another tiny pinprick into the heart of men and women who are asking themselves more often: ‘Why am I doing this?'” O’Mara wrote.

In the wake of the incident, Starbucks claims it will work with law enforcement to promote “understanding and respect” between the parties. Meanwhile, the police department says it will host a “Coffee with a Cop” event at Starbucks where community members can engage with officers in a safe space.

While it is unclear if O’Mara’s daughter’s claims are true, the story solidifies the ever-growing contentious relationship between law enforcement and civilians as revelations of police brutality, corruption, and abuse of power pervade the national conversation. 

Kanye West Fans Are Upset After Paying $55 For Food At His Sunday Service Concert Only To Get Bad Food

Kanye West Fans Are Upset After Paying $55 For Food At His Sunday Service Concert Only To Get Bad Food

We’re in the final weeks of 2019, the decade is coming to an end and many things that used to, don’t make sense anymore. Like Kanye West’s concert being covered from start to finish by the Christian Broadcasting Network —of all networks. If someone had told us at the beginning of the decade that this would be happening, we’d definitely brushed it off. Not only is wildly talented musician’s Christian conversion a surprise, for a lot of attendees to his Sunday Service concert in Baton Rouge last week the food served was more than a disappointing surprise. 

Kanye knows how to maintain the world guessing, re-emerging with amazing music.

Each of Kanye’s albums has a distinct personality —a mirror pointed toward all the rumors and tabloids and scrutiny. Everything he does is an event; no other artist uses their platform more effectively. From his early days of throwing out confrontational vibes on “Late Registration,” to that incident at the VMAs with Taylor Swift, to disappearing into Hawaii and returning with “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” to the guerilla marketing of “Yeezus” and Paul McCartney collaborations and the sloppy but one-of-a-kind release of “The Life of Pablo,” he’s maintained an awesome cult of personality throughout his career.

Now thousands of die-hard fans are choosing to follow Jesus Christ as a result of Kanye West’s new outreach concerts called “Sunday Service.”

Kanye stunned the world with his new album called “Jesus is King,” saying his life is now devoted to sharing the message of God’s love and salvation. The hip-hop icon took his ‘Sunday Service’ on the road, making an appearance at the Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to perform songs from his latest release, Jesus is King. 

Reportedly, Kanye West won’t be profiting from the Baton Rouge event.

According to The Blast, West wasn’t paid for the concert and he had nothing to do with the food. However, the catering provided to attendees for $55 riled up a few attendees and sparked outrage and hilarious reactions on the internet.

Like it happens in all of Kanye’s recent Sunday gatherings, fans attend to praise the born-again rapper and the performances of both himself and his accompanying gospel choir. Many guests are not happy with the price of attending and food provided at the event held at Baton Rouge.

One attendee’s post about the questionable, Fyre Fest-esque food went viral.

One attendee posted a picture of what she’d been served—a pair of pancakes, two sad strips of bacon, and a sausage patty on a styrofoam plate—and said she wanted a refund. “Can y’all cover a story on this because I want my coins back,” concert attendee Kimberly Kinchen asked, tagging a local news station. “This is the wonderful & COLD brunch BUFFET we are being served.”

The shade over the “food” kept rolling in as more and more people learned about it.

Louisiana is one of the most wonderful states in the U.S. for food. The Cajun food culture in the southern state is one of the most celebrated and loved food in the country. How did they not plan better food for the event?

Some social media users called out the attendees for falling for the scam.

Not saying the attendees are to blame, but it is almost like no one learned from the Fure Fest fiasco.

The church allegedly holds a yearly ‘Brunchella’ to raise funds, but they denied the claim.

A source close to the situation reported to The Blast, that Bethany Church in Baton Rouge holds an annual event called “Brunchella” each year to raise money. Kanye and his Sunday Service did perform at the event at 8 p.m. that night. The church, however, denies it is an annual event and claims the church was simply used as venue for the event. The food was provided by a promoter for ‘Brunchella.’

Once a Twitter post showing the measly breakfast hit social media, it gained viral status real quick.

The internet was quick to make connections to the infamous Fyre Festival and its famous promise of “gourmet celebrity chef meals” that turned out to be the viral and awful-looking cheese sandwiches. “What’s going on at Fyre Fest South aka #Brunchella?” one fan wrote.

In a press release, the event coordinator clarified that the brunch was provided for ticket holders before Kanye’s performance.

“On Friday, November 1, Lauryn’s Fine Catering provided brunch to Baton Rouge Sunday Service to attendees. Sunday service has no affiliation with the ‘Brunchella’ catering service. Attendees were to be provided with a hot brunch while waiting on Kanye West to perform. The catering company did not provide adequate food for ONE attendee and a social media post went viral,” they said. The press release continued, “Kanye West and the Sunday Service collective has no responsibility for any food complaints reported and should be disassociated with such claims.” As one person pointed out on Twitter, “Kayne not responsible for this.. The promoter is who put the brunch together..”

The catering service addressed the controversy on Facebook.

In a Facebook post, Lauryn’s Fine Catering addressed the controversy, saying that the event’s organizers were the ones who set that $55 brunch price and that they weren’t even asked to participate in the 2,000-person VIP event until “28 hours” before it took place. “While we typically do not fulfill large, full-service orders with less than a month’s notice, we chose to assist the organizers whom we believed to be affiliated with Kanye’s team at an incredibly reduced rate,” the caterer wrote. “Our company additionally provided staffing, tables, and linens at little or no cost.”

For what it’s worth, that “Duck Dynasty” chick had a great time.

“Straight up night of praise and worship with joy, humility, thankfulness, bold faith and power,” wrote Korie Robertson, the wife of Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty, on Instagram. “His name was lifted high in this place. Yes, God, more of this.” Nothing makes sense this year, we tell you, but next time, maybe better breakfast, God?
