Outrage over racial slur printed on Starbucks cup

A woman who said she knows Pedro went to Twitter to offer criticism to Starbucks.

He just wanted a cup of coffee from Starbucks, but it came with a racial slur as well.

"Free diversity training for @Starbucks", Torres tweeted, including an image of herself with two men labeled "human beings" while taking a jab at the company by showing separate images labeled "beans" and "coffee beans".

At the EU-West Balkans Summit, state leaders will hold talks on common interest themes like connectivity, security and migration. The declaration says, in part: "the EU reaffirms its unequivocal support for the European perspective of the Western Balkans".

Pedro, who asked not to be identified by his last name, ordered two coffees from the cafe and received his order with the word "beaner" on both cups in place of his name, he told NBC4's sister station, Telemundo 52. "I did not accept it because it's like an insult to everyone, that they want to buy you with a $50 card", he said.

The incident comes just weeks before Starbucks is expected to close all of its locations for one full day on May 29 in order to hold implicit bias training for staff.

"This is not the experience that we want for our clients", the statement read. "We apologize and are working to correct this, and we are investigating the incident to ensure that this does not happen again".
