Vegans across the country are protesting Starbucks for its "insane" institution of a "vegan tax" against non-dairy drinkers.
The controversy, which stems from the fact that the coffee chain typically charges extra for plant-based milk options, has led to sit-ins at Starbucks locations nationwide, Insider reported.
PETA, the animal rights group, has organized many of the protests, which have taken place in cities such as San Diego, Queens, N.Y., and Meriden Township, Minn., as well as outside the home of the companys CEO, Kevin Johnson.
The protests began in December 2019, when PETA announced it was purchasing shares of Starbucks stock - just enough to start attending regular shareholders meetings. From there, the organization plans to pressure the company to stop "charging up to 80 cents extra for vegan milk."

What happens to the price of milk once the cows are eliminated?
Starbucks charges more for a product that costs them more? I’m shocked!
Starbucks and the woke vegans, chaos has come home to those who created this insanity. Its happening to the DNC RIGHT NOW. MORE POPCORN PLEASE
Aw, what a sad story.
PETA is a terrorists organization. If they don’t like what Starbucks charges, they should go elsewhere. Stinking brain dead hateful commie liberals.
Theres the problem focusing your business model on retards. It may be easy to get a retard to spend $5 for a cup of coffee but then you have to actually earn it by having retards for customers.
Seems the snowflakes have a problem paying the cost of their choices, but want us to subsidize them in insanity.
And that is what this is really about.
or they could just carry a flask of nut juice in their fanny packs for their ocd diet “needs”.
“What happens to the price of milk once the cows are eliminated?”
What happens to the cows once the demand for milk is eliminated?
I just had a great product idea. The all beef bagel and meat coffee!
“nut juice” . . . Thank you for pointing that out. Can we please stop calling it soy milk, rice milk, and almond milk? It is not milk. When was the last time anyone saw an almond with a teat or a soybean with an udder? Soy juice, almond juice, or rice liquid, but not milk.
I cook with olive milk. Put some on top of pizza even,
They should do their homework...but juice is not environmentally friendly.
Lol!! That is...NUT juice is not environmentally friendly
This past Thursday, at a supermarket I frequent, they had Community Coffee in 12 ounce bags for $3.98 each. They had store label yellow sweeetener packs, 250/$2.98. Since I choose powdered creamer, a store brand was 16 oz. for $1.98. So, for +/- $9.00, I have 60 cups, as I chhose the time of day!
Absolutely,moms carry baby bottles for children. They dont expect coffee shops to provide their every need. BYOM. This is just step one the next demand will start us down the slope.
Their coffee is cruelty enough...
