(WWJ) An employee at a Starbucks store inside an Indiana Target is under fire for making a Tik Tok video where he created a drink called Blue Lives Matter.
One of the main ingredients was bleach.
“In a cold foam pitcher, we’re going to add more bleach, a little blood of innocent black men,” the employee said in the video. A song titled “All I Want for Christmas Is a Few Dead Cops” played in the background.
The video made the rounds on social media and when it got to Target's attention the company said the employee was fired. A spokesman said the video was “appalling and unacceptable.”
“We don’t tolerate this behavior at Target, want all guests to be treated with respect and have terminated the team member who was responsible,” the company said in a statement. They added it does not appear the so-called drink was served to a guest and it did not contain bleach, only milk and water.
“We’re deeply sorry for this disturbing video, which TikTok has removed based on the platform’s guidelines,” the company said.
