Thousands Tip Starbucks Worker Via GoFundMe

Starbucks store

Before Gutierrez could show her the company mandates that require all customers to wear masks, Gilles "started cursing up a storm", he said.

What Gilles did not expect is that social media users won't take her side in the story.

The Washington Post noted than numerous Facebook users defended the barista, Lenin Gutierrez. "I started reading the comments and just laughed at the mimics people made about this 'meeting in nature'".

The original post went viral with more than 133,000 comments and 49,000 shares before it was taken down Friday, and a GoFundMe campaign started on the barista's behalf has raised more than $50,000 in "tips" for him, and it's steadily increasing.

This led to a GoFundMe page by a commentor Matt Cowan.

Instead of getting sympathy, the internet responded by sending Gutierrez more than $36,000 in tips as of this writing (via The Washington Post).

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

"Meet Lenen from Starbucks who refused to serve me cause I'm not wearing a mask, ' she said in the post, tagging the coffee shop off the 4200 block of Genesee Avenue".

And while the initial goal of the page was to raise about $1,000, thousands have donated close to $90,000 for Lenin for standing up to do the right thing. "And when we hit $100 I was overwhelmed by that", Cowan said.

"I felt baffled and honored to receive so substantially assistance and appreciate when it was at $1,000".

"With this donation that everyone provided me on GoFundMe, I can make these dreams a reality", he said.

Gutierrez said he will use the cash to pursue his dream of dancing and teaching children to dance - he added: "From the bottom of my heart thank you so much, it is just incredible to see that I can actually make these dreams pursuing more into dance a thing now". He also wants to donate to some organizations in the San Diego community.

Gutierrez thought it was going to be an uneventful day until Amber Lyn Gilles walked in without a face mask on.

The coronavirus pandemic is raging and shows no signs of abating: cases all across the world have seen a steady, and on some days, even a significant increase.

The Facilities for Illness Handle and Prevention suggests that all people "should wear a cloth deal with deal with when they have to go out in general public" to decrease transmission and gradual the spread of the coronavirus, which is really contagious.

The team of scientists calculated that sporting confront masks prevented extra than 78,000 infections in Italy amongst April 6 and May perhaps 9, and a lot more than 66,000 bacterial infections in New York City in between April 17 and May 9.

But some argue that the act of wearing a mask is political, and that wearing one violates their civil liberties. And workers in certain industries are required wear a mask or respirator while on the job. Medical conditions that could be inhibited by wearing a mask are an exemption.

When Amber Lynn Gilles was refused service at a San Diego Starbucks for not wearing a mask, she put barista Lenin Gutierrez on blast, posting his picture on her Facebook feed. They can also buy delivery.

"We want everyone to feel welcome in our stores", a Starbucks spokesperson told CNN in a statement. "We respectfully request customers follow social distancing and safety protocols recommended by public health officials, including wearing a facial covering when visiting our stores", the representative added.
