A Rhode Island police officer got a little bit more than coffee when he was given his Dunkin Donuts cup. An unnamed employee, who the officer said was being rude, wrote “#BlackLivesMatter” across the officer’s cup. And the police association isn’t pleased.
“The negativity displayed by the #Blacklivesmatter organization towards police across this nation is creating a hostile environment that is not resolving any problems or issues, but making it worse for our communities,” The Executive Board of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #3 said in a statement. “They are doing this by increasing tensions amongst police and the people they serve.”
A spokesperson for Dunkin’ Donuts also released a statement in regards to the matter.
“Dunkin’ Donuts and our franchisees share a commitment to the well-being and fair treatment of all our guests,” the statement read. “The franchise owner has apologized to the police officer on behalf of Dunkin’ Donuts, and he has counseled the employee about her behavior.”
Well that’s not the worst thing that could have been written on his cup.
