Starbucks barista deliberately put satanic symbols in morning coffee woman says

A Starbucks barista showed questionable taste in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. While drawing pretty pictures on top of a morning latte can be a welcome surprise, one barista topped off her customer's coffee with satanic imagery.

Customer Megan Pinion, like many in the modern world, took a photo of the drinks and posted them to the Starbucks Facebook page.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - In the Mall of Louisiana, the customer discovered her beverage had a five-pointed star in one drink and the number 666 in the other.

The pentagram, oriented with the point facing downwards, is often used as a symbol by devil worshipers. The number 666 is associated with Satan in the book of Revelations.

It is better to light one tiny candle than to curse the darkness --

Customer Megan Pinion, like many in the modern world, took a photo of the drinks and posted them to the Starbucks Facebook page.

Starbucks was quick to apologize. "We reached out to her through social media and apologized," Starbucks social media team spokesman Tom Kuhn says. "We're taking the complaint seriously. We're not sure who served her or what kind of beverage it was. It looks kind of caramel-ish in the photos.

"I unfortunately can't give the young man's name who served it, because I was so appalled that I could not bring myself to look at him," Pinion wrote in her post. "I am in no way judging his beliefs or dis-meriting his beautiful artwork, I am however judging his lack of professionalism and respect for others."

Starbucks issued a statement which read "We have sincerely apologized for her experience. This obviously is not the type of experience we want to provide any of our customers, and is not representative of the customer service our partners provide to millions of customers every day."

For any, it served as a reminder how many Starbucks baristas - young and unaccustomed with the work environment - need to stay behind the counter!
