"What irks me is completely the and entire disrespect for a police officer who, in its build of being dwelling with family and playing a meal and a soccer game, is patrolling his minute town", Chief Johnny O'Mara acknowledged in a Fb post that included a notify of the "Pig" espresso cup.

The label on one of many cups - a Venti sizzling chocolate - learn: "PIG".

A Starbucks spokesperson said the barista has been suspended "pending the outcome of our investigation into this matter, the Tulsa World reported". However, when the officer received his order, the cups had "PIG" where the name of the customer usually goes.

He then called the store, with staff saying they could replace the coffee with a correct label - but Chief O'Mara wasn't happy with their response.

He described the message on the cup as "just another little flag" signalling a "contemptuous, roaring and riotous" element in a "misanthropic" society.

Warner, whose previous high score was 253, hit an unbeaten 335 from 418 balls - the second highest Test score by an Australian . Speaking to reporters, after the day's play Warner explained the reasons behind the decision to declare the innings.

The station said the word was printed on all the cups.

The coffee company discerned the incident "absolutely unacceptable". "Fool me twice, shame on me". We have also apologized directly to him and are working to connect with the police chief, as well as to express our remorse, "Mendes said, reading a statement over the phone".

However, in a Friday statement, Starbucks said the worker who wrote the offending word on the cup "used poor judgment and is no longer a partner" after the violation of company policy.

The coffee shop suggested reprinting the label, but O'Mara responded on his Facebook page with the proverb "Fool me once, shame on you". These people are there waiting for 911 calls to come in.

And canvass about different projects like hosting a Coffee with a Cop event for local law enforcement to meet with baristas and community members to discuss "the critical role dispatchers and police offers to play in keeping our communities safe", at the Starbucks, the joint statement said. He said it is not representative of the deep appreciation they have of their officers who work to keep the communities safe.
