White Santee customer berates Black Starbucks barista in viral video

SANTEE — A Santee Starbucks customer who is White loudly berated a barista and shouted an obscenity Sunday after the barista, who is Black, asked her to wear her mask on her face. The encounter went viral on social media Monday and is on the barista’s GoFundMe page.

In the video the barista, Alex Beckom, 19, is serving a female customer who had a Trump 2020 mask on her chin but not on her face. The video shows the woman, who is unidentified, saying to Beckom that the barista is discriminating against her “because I’m a Trump supporter.”

“F--- Black Lives Matter,” the woman says.

The woman then asks for a straw and sugar packets, which Beckom cheerfully hands her and the woman thanks her.

When Beckom again asks the woman to keep her mask on the next time she comes to the store, the woman again becomes agitated, saying wearing a mask is “not the law” and that COVID-19 is “a hoax.”

1. The customer should have been refused service

And ejected from the store.

2. An elderly poll worker here asked a voter to

put his mask on and he starts cusing and throws the ballot in her face. Trump supporters were coming to the polls wearing MAGA caps, clothing and flags on their vehicles. The sheriff had to post a deputy at the polls to keep order. That's what we deal with.

3. The barista showed true class. I'm proud of her.

Though public exhibition of her passive-aggressive debating skills may dampen her marriage prospects with insecure and self-important suitors. Alas, the wages of social ambience.

4. Agreed. I work as a cashier and we have to remain professional

even when provoked to do otherwise. And don't think we haven't been tempted.

I'm also impressed that the barista didn't fall back on calling a supervisor for this situation.

5. Hats off to cashiers, waitstaff and baristas. Any and all who man the tills of our economy.

Of course it could have been that her supervisor was a short fused, open carry maniac who would have totally screwed up her groove.

8. This is the same Santee which had the two separate incidents of shoppers wearing Nazi

masks or hoods.
