COFFEE CHAOS: Starbucks' 'OPEN' Bathroom Policy TURNS OFF Customers

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.21.18

Coffee retail giant Starbucks announced earlier this month their new policy allowing “anyone” to use the store’s restroom facilities; sparking a fierce backlash from customers who claim the new rules are turning coffee shops into a “squatters” paradise.

According to CBS Los Angeles, the worldwide chain revised their “bathroom policy” just five weeks after two African American men were arrested in Philadelphia while waiting for a friend.

“If you go into a business and you just sit there and you don’t buy anything you are taking up space at the table,” said one frequent Starbucks drinker.

“You could end up having a squatters problem where you just have people coming and staying. I mean if they are going to do that they need to limit how long people can stay in there,” added another.

Even some employees are complaining about the new policy; saying “we get attacked a lot.”

“We don’t want to become a public bathroom, but we’re going to make the right decision 100% of the time and give people the key, because we don’t want anyone at Starbucks to feel as if we are not giving access to use the bathroom,” said a statement from the company.
