Daughter of police chief in Starbucks cup scandal says he’s ‘absolutely a pig’
The Oklahoma police chief who blasted Starbucks over an order one of his officers received with a “PIG” label was accused — by his own daughter — of “absolutely” acting like one.
The young woman, who claims to be the daughter of Kiefer Police Chief Johnny O’Mara, tore into him in a series of tweets, claiming that she knew him to be “blatantly, proudly racist” before they became estranged.
“I’d like to say that he is absolutely a pig and I’d like to thank the brave men and women from Starbucks for their service,” @MissOMara wrote on Twitter.
She continued, “for the record, my father has [zero] business being a police officer.”
“He was blatantly, proudly racist when I was a kid,” she tweeted. “Said things I would never repeat. He treats women like dogs, including his own daughter.”
The Starbucks scandal began when the police chief wrote on Facebook about how one of the officers made a Thanksgiving coffee run for the department — and came back with orders plastered with “PIG” on the labels.
“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, prompting the coffee chain to issue an apology.
But his daughter claimed that others in his department weren’t as irked by the insult.
“The deputy it actually happened to told my mom he didn’t really care and that it was a harmless joke, no big deal,” she said. “but my father is a camera whore who couldn’t resist the attention.”
Her tweets have since gone viral, with the initial post racking up nearly 90,000 retweets.
The messages apparently gained enough traction that her father took notice.
She later tweeted, “update: he has seen it and had someone call my mom to ‘get that s–t off twitter’ lmao he is upset.”
