Starbucks is finally sticking up for its customers rather than allowing the woke movement to permeate itself in customer service.
The trans movement has caught fire not only here in the United States, but also globally.
It has emboldened people to become very aggressive in public, especially when it comes to being misgendered, which was at the root of the problem at a Starbucks in the UK, reports the New York Post.
Out of Control
This is all about getting yourself into a viral video… or at least that is what it seems to me.
The barista at the Starbucks coffee shop in Beresford House in Southampton went ballistic when a customer called the barista a "her," when apparently it was a biological female that identified as a male.
The barista got right up in the woman's face, accusing her of being transphobic.
The woman pushed back, stating, "Don't ever call me transphobic. EVER!"
The employee then started to berate the woman, stating, "[sic] called me a her… You're being transphobic, Karen. Now get out," reports Fox News.
This went back and forth until the barista clapped her hands close to the woman's face, then told her to get out.
When the woman requested a refund, the barista told the woman, "You can't have one. Now get out. You are trespassing right now."
The barista turned and realized someone was filming the incident, then rushed the individual with the phone.
This is how it all went down…
Transgender Starbucks Employee screams at woman for misgendering him, then proceeds to violently assault a man filming the altercation.
Is this an acceptable way for staff to behave @StarbucksUK ? ☕️ pic.twitter.com/NPDjrYYSKG

The store owner has since fired the barista and the incident is now under investigation by the local police, who stated, "It is alleged that a staff member became verbally abusive towards a customer within the premises, before assaulting a member of the public who was filming the incident. Our investigation into this matter remains ongoing at this time."
This is far from the first time a barista has gone wild at a Starbucks, as they have often confronted police in stores, refusing service, and sometimes spitting in their coffee…
Yeah… I think I will continue to avoid Starbucks at all costs for the foreseeable future.
