Starbucks barista gets $57000 in donations just after 'Karen' shames him

She also took his photograph, and soon enough, put up a post on Facebook describing her experience.

Gutierrez, meanwhile, posted a video thanking everyone for their support and sharing his side of the story.

"When I realized who I was just thinking" wow, she really blew me away on Facebook, "Gutierrez told CNN". "I started looking through the remarks and just laughed at the memes men and women produced about this 'encounter in the wild"'. Many people expressed their vociferous approval for Lenin and many other said that they wanted to visit the coffee shop personally to give him a tip. The fundraiser was created by Matt Cowan of Irvine, California.

After seeing the post blow-up, Matt Cowan, who doesn't know Gutierrez, chose to set up a GoFundMe for the barista.

Gutierrez said that before he could explain to his Starbucks policy that all customers wear a mask at the store, he said, "I just jerk and start cursing a storm".

The original goal of the campaign was $ 1,000 - but less than a week later, thousands of people had donated almost $ 80,000.

In an update on the GoFundMe page, Cowan wrote that all money in the "virtual tip jar" will be going to Gutierrez "for him to do with it as he wishes".

"I was perplexed and honored to receive so much support and love when I was in $ 1,000". The fact that it's now over $ 65,000, I don't know how to really shout how grateful and blessed I feel at this opportunity that everyone has given me.

Iran issues arrest warrant for Trump over Soleimani killing
Washington blamed Soleimani for masterminding attacks by Iran-aligned militias on USA forces in the region. Red Notices are issued for fugitives wanted either for prosecution or to serve a sentence.

A Starbucks spokesperson said the company is adhering to COVID-19 guidelines from both the Centers for Disease Control and local governments at their stores.

A recent study released in early June found that corona spread mainly through airborne transmission and the use of a mask is the most effective way to stop the spread from person to person.

But some argue that the act of wearing a mask is political, and that wearing one infringes on their civil liberties.

President Donald Trump he recently told the Wall Street Journal that the masks are "a double-edged sword" and suggested that the masks should be worn as a political statement, rather than as a health precaution, to show disapproval.

California has a statewide deal with masking rule requiring persons to dress in a mask any where they appear within six feet of some others. Medical conditions that could be inhibited by wearing a mask are an exemption.

Tips for a San Diego Starbucks barista are pouring in on GoFundMe after he shared the cafe's mask-wearing policy with a woman lacking a face covering who later tried to shame him in a Facebook post.

In accordance to Starbucks, a lot of places - based on area mandates - let clients who are not wearing masks to purchase at the generate-via or use cell order and spend to decide up their oder at the entrance door. They can also send delivery. "We respectfully request customers follow social distancing and safety protocols recommended by public health officials, including wearing a facial covering when visiting our stores".
