He’s got a foul mouth. He can’t sing well. He’s insulting. He’s racist. He’s nasty. And he’s miserable at English grammar. He doesn’t need to work around people, or food.
Christopher Cristwell, a 25-year-old California man, was fired from Starbucks on Tuesday after posting the “Starbucks Rant Song” to YouTube, the Boston Herald reports. The video features the now former Starbucks employee, clad only in his underwear and the iconic standard-issue green apron, strumming his guitar and complaining about annoying customers.
But his explanation… heavens…
“I made this video not for the customer, with whom I love deeply, and not for my managers, with whom I respect and appreciate, but for my fellow baristas,” Cristwell wrote on Starbucks Gossip in response to comments posted about the video. “If I was able to provide just a few with some comedic relief after a stressful shift, than I can accept the consequences of my actions.”
‘With whom I love deeply’? ‘… my managers, with whom I respect…’? If he hadn’t been fired for any other reason, he should be for that.
