A RUDE Starbucks customer has brutally slammed a barista for refusing to serve her while she wasn’t wearing a face mask. 

Amber Lynn Gilles, from California, was left fuming when Starbucks employee Lenin Gilles didn’t obey the county’ guidelines – and kind customers have tipped him a “whopping £22,000” after hearing the tale.

Amber attempted to get back at Lenin after he didn’t serve her a drink by taking to Facebook and sharing a photo of him. 

She wrote: “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.”

Her post trying to shame Lenin backfired, as thousands showed their support for the Starbucks worker for standing by the guidelines during the coronavirus pandemic. 


In order to show support for the barista, Matt Cowan set up a GoFundMe campaign

The description said: “Raising money for Lenin for his honorable effort standing his ground when faced with a Karen in the wild.

“Please note that all donations made to this GoFundMe are considered to be personal gifts to Lenin Gutierrez.”



The donation page has so far racked up a staggering $31,000 (£25,000). 

Lenin did a short video reply thanking people for their “love and support.”

He also told his side of events, and said he was following company policy and she had taken his name and photo and said she would take the issue further. 

Many people were in huge support of the Starbucks worker, with one saying of Amber: “So young yet so Karen.”

Another added: “Being served by Starbucks is not a constitutional right.”

Meanwhile, one wrote: “Starbucks’ rights don’t end where your feelings begin.”

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps announced that from June 15 it will be mandatory for people to wear face coverings on public transport.

If you believe you have symptoms, sit tight at home and get someone else to go out for you if you can.
