Blind Item #8

This A list comic/actor took a huge check without telling anyone he took the huge check from a corporate behemoth to advocate for them in a recent public relations disaster.

Was he expecting people to think he was promoting a corporation for free? Now that I think of it, I've met big enough fans of Starbucks that they might believe someone would do that.

Starbucks tastes like burnt urine. I don't know why it's so popular other than people can cover that nasty shit in syrups and foams that smell of dryer sheets.

It's popularity is unfathomable.

Death Wish coffee ftw.

Well of course this issue is debatable on how it speaks about the character of Mr. Hart because he very well should have voiced his concern over this issue regardless of the payout. My take on Kevin Hart is that he was invited out to Hollywood because he is exactly the kind of duplicitous black actor they like out there and he's just now getting a feel for how they roll. can just SE the seething opportunism boiling behind his eyes. Hey, someones gotta take the place of the Black Jewish Knight of Malta Sammy Davis Jr, The Bethesda Naval Station Mk conditioned Cosby, and the crack addicted bi-sexual Richard Pryor.

Starbucks sells more sugar based drinks than they do actual coffee. Starbucks is a "lifestyle", not a source of caffeine. I generally avoid hipsters, but I'll give them this - they make a good cup of coffee. I stopped buying Starbucks years ago, because I never got any coffee in their stores that wasn't stale.

The only black thing Starbucks wants in the building is the coffee.

You mean passive and inoffensive black male one could invite to dinner, right? Like Will Smith? Neutered but terrifically gung-ho!

What the movie Get Out has taught us all...

MrsTea said...

I'm not even surprised , Kevin is so lame

I think the popularity of Starbucks most be soley through people who actually hate the taste of coffee but like the taste of sugar, syrup, cream, artificial flavors and more sugar.

Amazes me how many morons take an isolated incident at one of 15,000 starbucks locations in the US and somehow decide that the whole corporation must be the same.

CityGirl said...

Except it just happened again, sans arrest

T. W. said...

@TexasRose

Starbucks and Bath & Body Works don't take kindly to us coloreds setting foot in their stores.

The joke is on them. We tend to spend cash money.

Brayson87 said...

You know if they want to change the news they should bring back that Unicorn Frappuccino, nobody likes peach. Although it would be fun join the picket lines and hurl insults at hipster customers who can't practice what they preach.

I could understand the outrage if Starbucks refused service to these few people because of their race. But to say “you have to buy something to use the restroom” is called normal. Starbucks should not have apologized. This is one biggest victories for the homeless regardless of race, because they now will be able to go use and camp out in Starbucks restrooms and other similar places of business.

Jennacheryl said...

Just read the thread. Kevin was saying that people should wait and see what happens. He watched the gmail interview and is now into the boycott.
The reason most pple drink it is because they all but ran caribou out of business, as well as any other competition.

Jennacheryl said...

@one eye Bob..... the employees were in the wrong. Everyone knows that you can go there and just chill for awhile. I have done it hundreds of times.

plot said...

@one_eyed_bob

That Starbucks allowed others to use the bathroom who ordered nothing. It's on tape.

The guys who were arrested were not homeless. They were waiting on a friend, like a lot of people do, to order.

Look at me and my $6 coffee, I’m fabulous, too broke too tip, but again I’m fabulous.

T R said...

Oh puke. Yup every Starbucks and Bath & Body hates all colored people. Yup thats just a known fact. Go cry a river to your girlfriend or mom or someone else besides here.

T R said...

In my city you can’t just hang out anywhere without being a paying customer, it’s called loitering. Even at gas stations they have a min of how long your car can be parked at a gas station.

T R said...

Actual signs outside the gas station with warnings they will call the cops, again loitering people

T R said...

It’s coffee, not food, it would be rude to order lunch/dinner without your guests. It’s not the first time or last time this will happen. They had suspicions of something or simply loitering. They can’t call the cops and say, hey black people come get them.

plot said...

"They can’t call the cops and say, hey black people come get them. "

That's where you are wrong. They can. Cops do.

It doesn't matter. The guys were waiting on a friend. This happens all the time.

NicQuerica said...

🤣 yeah but we don't all follow Kevin Hart or find him funny(I can't stand that short motherfucker with his big mouth and bug eyes) so massa done fucked up on that front.

NicQuerica said...

They were waiting for a friend. Furthermore what sense does it make to buy a coffee BEFORE going to the restroom? Who wants to take a cup of coffee into the bathroom??? Fuck off, TR. Stop trying to criminalize these guys when they did nothing wrong.
