It looks like Starbucks is about to be cancelled. AGAIN.
Starbucks is under fire for banning its employees from wearing anything supporting or affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement. The request was sent out the employees last week, reminding employees that such messages are prohibited under the company’s policy against accessories that “advocate a political, religious or personal issue.”
Within a video sent with the memo, an executive warned employees that “agitators who misconstrue the fundamental principles” of the movement could seek to “amplify divisiveness” if messages of support are displayed in stores.
Yet, during Pride Month, employees are encourage to wear pins to support LGBTQ equality.
