Starbucks Praises Barista Who Defended Breastfeeding Mom

“After a mother in Ottawa, Canada, was scolded by a customer for nursing her baby inside a Starbucks and a male barista came to her aid, the coffee giant expressed support for its employee, saying he did the right thing.
“’We want everyone who comes to our stores to enjoy their visit and to be treated with dignity and respect,’ Louisa Girotto, director of public affairs at Starbucks Canada, tells Yahoo Shine. ‘We were very pleased with the customer service our partner offered the woman who was breastfeeding, and I will reach out to him directly’…”
The teen made some comments to a reporter from the independent press. “Dude, it was awesome! I finally get a chance to see some tittie action in real-life–not including my cousin when I was only 13–and some asshole is going to try to stop my right to see it?! Ain’t happenin’, bro.
“And now this Louise chick from corporate says she wants to ‘reach me directly’ and she’s calling me her ‘partner’? Fuck yeah! And like, she’s in charge of public affairs, so like I guess if we do it and stuff, we don’t got to hide it, right? I just hope she’s as hot as this MILF was.
“My hand’s been pretty sore since this happened. Wait, that came out wrong. I mean from all my buddies high-fiving me. Well, I mean, a little from the other thing, too.”
