Starbucks considering leaving Facebook over hateful comments

Starbucks is considering leaving Facebook due to the tone of comments left on its posts about social issues and racial justice. As per BuzzFeed, Starbucks experienced overwhelmingly ’negative/insensitive, hate speech-related comments.’ In June last year, Starbucks joined hundreds of other brands, in temporarily pulling their ads from Facebook as part of a Stop Hate for Profit boycott campaign.

I don’t like this place the people don’t agree with me! Let’s leave rather than open dialogue and figure out why absurd extreme left ideology is unpopular with so many.

Starbucks is decent coffee but I switched to BRCC a long time ago. They're not political, they donate to veteran charities, employee mostly vets and most importantly the coffee is much better.

Hate/outrage for profit is the business model of social media so they're kinda SOL there.

And fair enough too. Brands (and individuals) have the right to decide how they interact. Facebook is a toxic environment at best and a breeding ground for radical hate at worst. Time to ditch them.

Why do these companies not understand that most people want a cup of coffee, not a lecture on same garbage critical race talking points? Rather than realizing they are alienating their client base they are going to double down and keep at it.

Even without their politics, Starbucks' coffee is nasty, bitter, and burnt. Seriously, if it is undrinkable without being mostly cream and sugar, it isn't coffee, it is dessert. BK and MickeyD's make better coffee. Yep, I said it.

Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia weren't so authoritarian. They only silenced the voices that they didn't like! You could totally have free speech as long as you agreed 100%. Same with North Korea today. I don't know why they are villified so much for so-called "lack of free speech".

If you want to be a public figure, you automatically are exposed to public criticism and hate. Grow a pair you greedy corporations.

would that be the Asian hate that they had to stop because they found out the majority of hate against Asians was black not white so they didn't play to the right demographic
