Wednesday, July 22 2020

A California woman is threatening to sue a Starbuck’s barista for half of the $100,000 in donations the barista received after the customer took to social media complaining the barista refused to serve her because she wasn’t wearing a mask.

Amber Gilles says she posted a photo of barista Lenin Gutierrez with the caption: "Meet Lenen from Starbucks who refused to serve me cause I’m not wearing a mask. Next time I will wait for cops and bring a medical exemption." Gilles' post exploded online, with a GoFundMe to raise tip money for Gutierrez collecting more than $100,000.

Gilles claims she has medical problems preventing her from wearing a mask and that Gutierrez’s action constituted discrimination.

"I get shortness of breath, dizziness and it messes with the heartbeat," said Gilles. "And I do have asthma as well, and I do get 'maskne'. So there’s several things going on and not only that but it doesn’t even work."

According to news reports, Gilles shared two pieces of paperwork to support her claim of a medical exemption — one of which was a 2015 doctor’s report on an ovarian cyst.

Gilles wants half of the GoFundMe money donated, and is threatening to sue. Noting that lawyers are expensive, Gilles has started her own GoFundMe to raise legal fees.

Starbucks now requires customers to wear facial coverings or masks in all 9,000 of its company-owned American stores. Customers who refuse to wear a mask inside can order using delivery, the drive-thru or curbside pickup, the company said.

That has left the race in a form of suspended animation, with…[more]
