LOL! Zack the Barista has become a funny internet meme. You know the guy. The Starbucks barista just standing there and taking it as he is being screamed at via megaphone. Here is one of the memes but there are many others.

I agree. I feel sorry for this guy, just working & trying to pay the bills. No working person should be hounded & harassed at work.
The CEO should be sued by his employees for providing a non safe work environment. You just know the barista is fantasizing about jumping over the counter and beating bullhorn boy.
Call OSHA. Surely the sound from a megaphone that close was dangerous levels
Really? You don’t respect a man working an honest job to pay us bills?
Being assaulted by sound is no small matter. The guy with the megaphone is going to lose some teeth.
The photo not only is meme-worthy but deserves the pulitzer as it represents the total absurdity of today’s world.
But it won’t win it because it also represents why we need more ammunition.
I hear ya brother. You can tell he thinks he is taking a just punishment.
Thats very possible. I think in your case, they may simply have been clueless, but in the case of the two guys in Philadelphia...these men were looking to provoke.
And I still suspect that the offending employee was black, possibly female and young. Starbucks does attempt to hire from the local community and give some kids a chance to up their game in terms of public contact and self-presentation.
But a young, black, female and probably not of their class employee trying to enforce company policy would have been totally unacceptable to these two MBA jerks, who obviously scoped out weakness.
There could be something else involved, but I think that if the employee had been white, Hispanic or Asian, that would have been emphasized in the news reporting.
The guy with the megaphone requires immediate hospitalization and extensive psychiatric counseling.
Negative, Ghost Rider. The pattern is full.
From a Reddit commenter:
“ZACK GETS INVOLUNTARILY REDPILLED”
Hey, isn’t that Professor Click, Let’s get some muscle over hear - next to bullhorn mama.
Thats a bullhorn, not a megaphone.
100+db can damage hearing and can be produced by many different battery powered megaphones.
Interesting legal question if one snatched the device from the guy and held it until the cops came.
I wouldn’t be able to restrain myself.
Why does it say Jacob? You can clearly see a ZACK nametag on his apron.
