Bikini-clad baristas divide Washington town
Daily Caller ^ | 1/3/14 | Breanna Deutsch

Posted on 01/03/2014 7:56:09 AM PST by smokingfrog

A quaint tourist town in Washington State has become divided over a coffee stand run by scantily clad bikini-wearing baristas.

At the center of the dispute is Meghan Calavan, owner of the Sips Ahoy coffee stand, and a female resident of Anacortes who accused Calavan of making offensive comments about her weight.

The argument between the two women has caught the attention of local authorities, has compelled members of the community to engage in fist fights and has threatened the survival of the popular sailor-themed bikini barista stand.

The feud first began on Facebook when Jesseka Kathleen Cladek posted on the Sips Ahoy page that the business was a “run down whore house.”

Meghan Calavan’s father, Kelly defended his daughter’s honor and came to the coffee stand’s defense.

He wrote that Cladek was “a huge fat b—- that no one would want to see in a bikini.”

The elder Calavan added, “She is just jealous of you beautiful fine lady’s!!.She looks like a fat pugsly Addams!!! [sic].”

Meghan Calavan also joined the argument on the company’s page. She posted that Cladek was “just jealous cause she’s fat and ugly and always will be. She’s gross lol look at her pictures. Her arms are the size of my thigh lollololol”

“The elder Calavan added, “She is just jealous of you beautiful fine lady’s!!.”

He’s talking about his daughter?

Don’t like it, don’t go there...free market is a wonderful thing. I personally would go there, provided the coffee was good (unapologetic heterosexual male here).

Getting into a fight with a customer on your company facebook page (the one you are supposed to use for marketing to bring in customers) is overwhelmingly stupid.

Those little sailor outfits are cute though.

How, how, how did I know that the cow lodging the complaint here would be fat, nasty, or, otherwise unpleasant to look at or be around.

How did I already know that?

I went to Facebook to find a page for Sips Ahoy, but all I could find was a “Boycott Sips Ahoy” page.

Is this a situation where a fat slob complained about nice looking women, and was told to STFU? With the fat slob then claiming victim status.

This gem FTA: Not long after the argument caught the public’s attention, the police contacted Meghan Calavan and told her to remove the controversial Facebook comments.

Police can now tell people to remove Facebook comments. Does this help ensure officers get home safe at the end of their shifts?

Actually, I think this is more likely to be a case of a good looking woman with more boobs than brains misidentifying her actual customer base and then pissing them off.

I suspect women are more likely to buy $4.00 coffees as well as to have FB pages than men.

This is a business 101 lesson on how NOT to use a FB business marketing page.

Well, in my analogy, unless it was the Bears or Steelers i gotta admit it would be amusing for the high schoolers to win. But in the pictures i like the blonde plenty.

Does remind me back in the day before Super Bowls were invented how the championship NFL team would take on the college all-stars. That was a fascinating concept...

The entire Facebook page for the shop has been pulled down (while the “boycott” page remains), and there is no indication in any of the stories who did that. But it is reported the cops ordered a comment to be removed. I think it’s revolting that are so bored that they would insert themselves into a catfight. Don’t they have somebody’s dog to shoot? A parking ticket to write?

The whole thing is over-the-top stupid. They’re trying to make a case that the “fat girl” is being bullied. In reality it’s just two ignorant people competing to see who can hurl the nastiest insults.

The fat chick is not somebody they want as a customer anyway.

Getting this fight covered by the news media thus making even more people aware that there exists a "bikini coffee shop" in the area = priceless.

Amen - the only facial piercing i don’t hate is the tiny lil diamond stud some chicks will put on the side of their nose. Not a ring, but just a little gem, looks like the female equivalent of gleaming tooth when a hero smiles

IOW, a typical teenage girl catfight. And the cops had to involve themselves.

I don’t think so.

Also the target market for higher priced specialty coffee drinks with extra ingredients = fattening = overweight women that can afford them.

Men buy beer, women buy coffee.

I wonder why the cops didn't tell the fat, jealous cow to remove her initial remarks which sparked the whole deal to begin with. And no, cops should not have any involvement with facebook disputes.
