Big Bucks On The Way for Starbucks Barista

The Starbucks barista who was publicly shamed by a customer who refused to wear a mask now has nearly $80,000 coming his way. 24-year-old Lenin Gutierrez was working at a San Diego Starbucks a week ago when a woman who wasn’t wearing a mask came in to order.

He politely asked her if she had a face mask, which is the required store policy, the woman then flipped him off, starting swearing, and took a picture of him to post on Facebook.

Meet lenen from Starbucks who refused to serve me cause I’m not wearing a mask. Next time I will wait for cops and bring a medical exemption.

The woman’s post said in part, “Meet Lenin from Starbucks who refused to serve me cause I’m not wearing a mask. Next time I will wait for the cops”.

The post however generated an outpouring of support for the barista.

Someone started a GoFundMe page with a goal of $1,000 in virtual tips. Now it’s up to $80,000!
