Boycotting Starbucks? Tell them here.

If enough people tell them now, he'll stop now.

6. He'd never make through the primaries

Too corporate, not for universal healthcare, wants to cut SS and Medicare. Corporate Democrats are scared to death we will elect a real progressive.

12. Yeah, but they don't know that.

Tell Starbucks that you're out unless and until its former CEO and major stockholder announces that he is not running.

5. I'm live chatting my disgust!

 

Mario B. (Listening)
Mario B.: Thank you for contacting Starbucks, my name is Mario B.. How Can I help you today?
ME: : Please pass on my comments that this Schultz guy needs to stop after he makes another ton of money selling his book. I buy a crapload of Starbucks instant cold coffee but I shall be stopping that until further notice.
Mario B.: Hello Pattie, I truly appreciate your feedback, we will make sure to pass your feedback properly.
ME: Thank you Mario...have a good night and look forward to purchasing Starbucks again after this Schultz guy's ego gets deflated. Best Regards...Pattie

8. Yeah, that's how my guy sounded

Answers were so canned, I even asked if he was a computer. He said no, but I am still not 100% sure.

9. Here's what I sent.

I'll keep this brief...if Howard Schultz insists on launching a vanity presidential campaign, his only accomplishment will be to siphon votes from the Democratic candidate, as Jill Stein did in 2016. Donald Trump told the audience at a fundraiser this evening that he wants him to run because it will "help" him secure a second term. It's a terrible idea, and he's received no shortage of that feedback on Twitter. Literally 100% of the responses to his tweets include some form of "don't run." I generally do not favor boycotts, but as long as it is his intention to go down this path, I can't in good conscience purchase your products. It's his prerogative to do this, as it is mine to not be a customer as long as he pursues a senseless and damaging "campaign." Thank you for your understanding.
