    Starbucks has issued an apology after two uniformed county deputies in California were reportedly denied service Thursday night.

    The incident happened at a store location in Riverside, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department confirmed in a tweet Friday night.

    “We are aware of the ‘cop with no coffee’ incident that occurred in Riverside on 12/12/19, involving our @RSO deputies,” the tweet read.

    “We are in communication w/ Starbucks Corporate addressing the issue of deputies being denied service.”

    Sheriff Chad Bianco retweeted the statement writing: “Two of our deputies were refused service at Starbucks. The anti-police culture repeatedly displayed by Starbucks employees must end.”

    Starbucks confirmed that the law enforcement officers were ignored by employees for nearly five minutes, a spokesperson said in a statement provided to KABC.

    "There is simply no excuse for how two Riverside deputies were ignored," said Starbucks spokesperson said. "We are deeply sorry and reached out to apologize directly to them."

    Starbucks said that the employees who were working that evening would not be working while the company investigates and takes “appropriate steps.”

    The Riverside incident comes just weeks after Starbucks barista in Oklahoma reportedly wrote “Pig” on the label of a police officer’s coffee cup.

    "This is absolutely unacceptable, and we are deeply sorry to the law enforcement officer who experienced this," the company said in a statement on Nov. 28. "We have also apologized directly to him and connected with the chief of the Kiefer Police Department, as well, to express our remorse."

    Freaking *******s.
    I usually mind my own business. But if I ever witnessed that I might end up with a disorderly conduct ticket. It would be totally worth it.:D

    <<<< not a coffee drinker. With that said, if I was I’d never step foot in a Starbucks, especially if I still wore a uniform. We just had this happen in Virginia as well.

    All I know, I’m never denied coffee at QT and it tastes better than Starbucks.

    Now that I've read the story, I can't use the proper language without another infraction.

    I used to go to Starbucks about once a week. After they went full communist a few years ago, I haven’t been back.

    Quit them long ago. This happens too often to be simply a local issue. Shultz is a POS.

    It's not Starbucks - it's the moronic, entry level, employees available for hire. To say you won't ever step foot in one of their stores, because of this, is like saying you'll never buy a particular make of rifle because some moron shot a cop with one. Starbucks is no more responsible for the stupid actions of employees than the rifle manufacturer is for their rifle. Stupid people do stupid things.

    Yes, the cops need the citizens to show up to buy them coffee cause they can’t get served themselves.
