Starbucks Serves Man Beverage With Label ‘Diabetes Here I Come’
(ABC News) — One Starbucks really got the name wrong on one customer’s order label last Friday. A man who ordered a Grande White Chocolate Mocha at a St. Augustine, Florida Starbucks reported receiving the drink with a printed label that read, “DIABETES HERE I COME.”
The customer, who prefers to remain anonymous, shared the photo on Facebook with local news station WJAX-TV in Jacksonville, Florida. He said he works near the Starbucks and another employee picked up coffees for the staff, according to their report. When the customer got his cup he noticed the unusual message on his label.
Apparently, he did not find the label very humorous, particularly since he said he has family members afflicted with the disorder. He wrote underneath the label, “2 of my sisters are diabetic, so…not funny.”
Starbucks corporate headquarters told ABC News in a statement that, “Starbucks strives to provide an inclusive and positive experience for our customers, and were disappointed to learn of this incident. We are working directly with the customer to apologize for his experience, and with our partners (employees) to ensure this does not happen again.”
