Why is Vernon Charles Allen Merriweather suing talk show maven Oprah Winfrey and Starbucks for discrimination and harassment to the tune of $15 million? Well, the man claims that the tea bearing Oprahs name and sold at the famed coffee chain was not only laced with heroin but Ambien and hallucinogens as well, according to TMZ.
The Buffalo, New York, resident allegedly filed a federal lawsuit stating that when he applied for a job at Starbucks, he was told in no uncertain terms, We dont hire ni****s! The suit then claims the baristas referred to themselves as members of the White separatist group the Aryan nation during Merriweathers visit.
Reportedly there is one major hole in Merriweathers tale: Teavana Oprah Chai, which is now available at Starbucks and Teavana stores nationwide and in Canada, was added to the retailers offerings a whole six months after Merriweathers suit was filed.
Besides Merriweathers Oprah and Starbucks lawsuits, he is also reportedly gunning for two colleges in Buffalo as well, accusing the educational institutions of discrimination and harassment and demanding that all parties at the universities mentioned in the suit get diversity training to boot! Oy vey!
Hello, I am insane in about 27 different ways. And that’s why I’m suing ... ummmm ... I’m suing .... errrrr ... I’m suing Dan Quayle. That’s right. I’m suing Dan Quayle. Because I’m just insane.
And yet he will find Lawyers to take it to Court. Tort reform at a National level would cure a good chunk of this Nations ills.
According to Starbucks the drink concoction wasn’t out until six months later.
We’ve got illegal aliens in Los Angeles that do this. One guy is wheel-chair bound. He scours the Southland looking for people who don’t quite meet the American’s With Disabilities Act. A mirror may be one inch higher than it should be. A doorway may be 1/2 inch narrower than it should be.
He gets thousands of dollars for these suits, and he’s got some vile attorney on retainer that files these suits over and over and over again.
Most places just settle for thousands to tens of thousands.
Beats working for a living.
Shut up will ya Kayne West and just leave the country .I understand that Iraq is pleasant this time of year. You can open your own Starbucks imsure
Three bogus suits and you’re out.
That would help!
As effective as gays going after Chik-Filet. Their sales skyrocketed so high their distribution chains couldn't keep up with increased volume.
The troubled gentleman.
Based on his childish behavior, he could be the four year old preschooler or the frownfaced adult.
Considering who she relentlessly pushed for POTUS, I'll side with this guy being that he has more credibility.
ahhhh the crazies just get more amusing
Yes, but the also deny Lee Harvey Oswald was a barista there.
My friend and I used to always say that Famous Amos cookies must have had heroin in them. Do you think we have a case?
Well...that explains the White Mocha on the menu.
If you were in California, yes. There's no statute of limitations for moonbattery there.
Not sure about the land of Krispy Kreames though.
I’m guessing schizophrenia and missed meds.
“FiveBucks” will add free pharmaceuticals and narcotics to their coffee the day after Jesus returns.
Freebes are what GibsMeDatswant, not businessmen.
You only have a case if you do a class action suit against Famous Amos, Mrs. Fields, the Keebler Elves, Cookie Monster, and other cookie-based characters.
Chai is just Greek for “tea”.
so rocket scientist oprah/starbucks called their product “tea tea”.
just poop trying to find suckers via a celebrity campaign.
