Starbucks is investigating a firing at a Centereach Starbucks after a Springs couple witnessed the "homophobic rant" directed at a gay employee and wrote about it in their blog.
Their account has gone viral.
The couple, Missy and Dana Alison, who live in East Hampton Town, say they were running errands with their 3-year-old daughter Lily on Sunday afternoon in Centereach, about 60 miles from their home, when they witnessed a manager in the Starbucks store on Middle Country Road scold the employee in front of his peers.
In an open letter to Starbucks, which was posted on Dana's blog, Missy wrote, "I saw one of the most brazen and unapologetic displays of homophobia I have ever witnessed in my entire life."
