Like most people, you like to have a cup of joe to start your workday off proper… but when something like this happens, you want to blow a gasket!
William O’Donnell, a Providence, RI Police Officer and his partner went to an area Dunkin’ Donuts store to get some coffee.
As they were leaving, O’Donnell noticed a message written on his cup that caused him to take a photo and post it to social media, along with the following post:
“So my coworker just went to get a coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts on Atwells Avenue in Providence. The worker was immediately rude, and didn’t appear to want to serve him in uniform.”
“Upon leaving he noticed what she wrote on his coffee cup “#blacklivesmatter.” Would you drink it? My suggestion…….absolutely not, go to Starbucks. When is this silliness going to end. But if the store gets robbed she’ll be calling us immediately to help AND we will because that’s what we do!”
According to Boston.com, Dunkin’ Donuts corporate has issued an apology, saying:
Dunkin’ Donuts and our franchisees want all guests to be treated well in our restaurants. The franchisee has apologized on behalf of the employee to the police and very much regrets the situation.
There might not be any grounds to arrest the employee, but maybe there should be some community service thrown in there to talk about how all lives matter and how we Americans should not segregate by color anymore. Maybe that should be the lesson.
What do you think of this incident? Do you think the employee should have received some form of punishment? Share your comments below and add this story to your twitter/facebook timeline.
