YouTube Rant Gets Starbucks Barista Fired
The Starbucks barista who turned a bad day at work into a YouTube rant that went viral won't have any more bad days serving coffee. The company fired him. Christopher Cristwell says he isn't bitter about the way his five-year tenure with Starbucks ended. In the video the 25-year-old California native wears only his underwear and the familiar green apron while singing uncomplimentary things about Starbucks customers. Cristwell posted the video two months ago. After it showed up on the popular company blog Starbucksgossip.com last week the coffee giant told him to turn in his apron.
