A Twitter user claiming to be the daughter of an Oklahoma police chief whose officer was given a Starbucks cup that said “PIG” instead of his name says that her father “absolutely is a pig” and deserved to be called out for it, The Daily Mail reports.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, a kerfuffle erupted late last month over the treatment of a police officer at a Glenpool, Oklahoma Starbucks location. For most Starbucks orders, the customer will be asked to tell the barista their name, so that when the order is ready, the employee can call out the customer by name. That name is also printed on the cup.
However, in this particular case, the officer ordered five cups of drinks for his colleagues, and the barista wrote the word “PIG” instead of the officer’s name on all of the receipts accompanying the transaction.
The officer’s boss, Kiefer Police Chief Johnny O’Mara, wasn’t pleased. He took to social media, posting a picture of one of the receipts bearing the derogatory term for a police officer.
“What irks me is the absolute and total disrespect for a police officer who, instead of being home with family and enjoying a meal and a football game, is patrolling his little town,” O’Mara wrote in a Facebook post that has since been deleted.

The incident was brought to the attention of Starbucks management; the barista in question was fired. Similarly, the incident brought about a public outcry over the treatment of the officer at the location.
However, a Twitter user identifying herself as @MissOMara, claiming to be Johnny O’Mara’s daughter, says her father deserved it, though it wasn’t O’Mara who was called a “pig” in the incident. Photos provided to The Daily Mail seem to point in the direction of the Twitter user being O’Mara’s daughter. However, it has yet to be verified.
“This is my father and i’d like to say that he is absolutely a pig,” she said.
Then, subverting the tradition of thanking police, soldiers, firefighters and so on for their service, the Twitter user thanked the “brave men and women” at Starbucks for their service.
In another tweet, she claimed that her father was “blatantly, profoundly racist” when she was a kid and that he treated women, including his own daughter, “like dogs.” She followed those statements with the words “oink oink,” followed by a pig emoji.
