Daughter of police chief in Starbucks scandal says he 'absolutely is a pig'
Two days ago, we covered a story about a former Starbucks employee who was fired by the international coffee giant after writing "PIG" on a police chief's coffee order.
Oklahoma police chief Johnny O'Mara revealed on social media that while on-duty officer, he visited went to a local Starbucks on Thanksgiving morning to order beverages for dispatchers who were also working over the holiday.
But the Kiefer Police Department chief was far from pleased after seeing that a member of staff at the coffee chain had labeled him a "PIG" on his order.
Per ABC News, in a Facebook post that has since been deleted, the police chief expressed his unhappiness about the insult - which was written on all five labels of the O'Mara's order. He reportedly wrote:
"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.
"As a side note, I called the store and was told they’d be happy to 'replace the coffee with a correct label.' The proverb 'Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me' came to mind."
O'Mara opens up about just how unhappy he was about being branded a 'pig':
As a result of the insult, a representative from Starbucks not only issued an apology to O'Mara, but confirmed that the employee in question has been fired. A statement from the chain said:
"In the coming days, Starbucks will be meeting with the Kiefer Police Department to begin discussing ways to work together, including a jointly hosted Coffee with a Cop event at Starbucks where local law enforcement can meet with baristas and members of the community to discuss the critical role dispatchers and police officers play in keeping our communities safe.
"This language is offensive to all law enforcement and is not representative of the deep appreciation we have for police officers who work tirelessly to keep our communities safe."
However, in another twist to this story, a young woman claiming to be Johnny O'Mara's daughter has recently spoken out on Twitter about how the police chief "absolutely is a pig".
@MissOMara wrote on Twitter in a series of tweets that the officer was "blatantly, proudly racist" before they became estranged from one another.
She wrote: "I’d like to say that he is absolutely a pig and I’d like to thank the brave men and women from Starbucks for their service."
She continued: "for the record, my father has [zero] business being a police officer.
"He was blatantly, proudly racist when I was a kid. Said things I would never repeat. He treats women like dogs, including his own daughter."
His 'daughter' also claimed that others in his department weren’t as irked by the insult as the chief was making out.
"The deputy it actually happened to told my mom he didn’t really care and that it was a harmless joke, no big deal," she said, before going on to say: "but my father is a camera whore who couldn’t resist the attention."
Her tweets have since gone viral, with the initial post racking up over 500,000 Likes and more than 90,000 retweets.
However, despite saying she hasn't seen her father in years, messages apparently gained enough traction that he felt the need to pass a message on through her mom.
She later tweeted, "update: he has seen it and had someone call my mom to ‘get that s**t off twitter’ lmao he is upset."
