Starbucks fires employee over 'PIG' coffee cups given to cops (PIC)

The Starbucks employee who gave an Oklahoma police officer cups of coffee with the word "PIG" printed on the label has been fired.

The police officer went to the Starbucks on Thanksgiving day to pick up five drinks. Chief Johnny O'Mara said that a customer pointed out the label on the cups to the officer.

"What irks me is the absolute and total disrespect for a police officer who, instead of being home with family and enjoying a meal and a football game, is patrolling his little town," O'Mara wrote in a Facebook post that has since been taken down, where he shared a picture of a cup with the "PIG" label on it.

The coffee company called the incident "absolutely unacceptable" and said it is "deeply sorry to the law enforcement officer who experienced this."
