What was the Starbucks Barista Mask Video all about?
In San Diego, California, a white woman entered the Starbucks café without putting on the mask. Despite being confronted by a black (Afro-American) employee, she refused to put the mask on and went into a profanity-laced tirade against the employee and the entire staff.

Owing to the ‘spiraling-out-of-control’ COVID 19 situations, every employee and customer was mandated to put on facial coverings covering the nose and mouth.

What was the reaction to the video that went viral?
The netizens widely condemned the Starbucks Barista Mask Video all across the world.

The Starbuck Barista Mask Video was met with ire from people of all races. The lady felt that her actions were deplorable, and she was willing to apologize to the café employee. The barista confirmed that they would not be leveling any press charges against the women since it was not done with purpose.
In the COVID-19 era, Starbucks has made it very clear that they will play a constructive part in supporting government and health officials to subdue the COVID-19 era.
That was not the only video that resurfaced, but many instances showcased violent confrontations between employees and customers. Thus, most retailers are urging the state governors to compel the shoppers/customers to put on the mask.
