Starbucks said a Philadelphia employee was fired after taunting a stuttering client.
The network said that the behavior did not reflect the experience that customers should have and that the employee is no longer with Starbucks.
A person on Facebook published on Sunday that his friend stuttered by giving his name and that the barista verbally misinterpreted it and then spelled the name with additional letters. The customer with the stutter sent an email to Starbucks and offered $ 5 as an apology, according to the message.
Starbucks said Thursday that it was not the ideal answer, and that since then he apologized directly to the person.
In May, Starbucks conducted anti-racial training for thousands of American employees after a worker from another Philadelphia police store in two black men waiting for a friend.
