The coupon pictured above says, “Valid for one beverage per customer per visit only at participating locations. Limited to persons of African American heritage and/or identity at time of exchange.”
It’s a hoax
In the wake of the controversy at a Philadelphia Starbucks where the police were summoned to remove two black men who were waiting to meet a friend and didn’t purchase anything, a despicable scam has surfaced.
According to the Associated Press, social media accounts that have been identified as coming from white nationalist groups are promoting bogus coupons offering free drinks to people of color.
This scam is likely an attempt to stir more bad sentiments about the coffee chain, which apparently is not exactly a favorite of white nationalists.
This is fucking outrageous.
