Starbucks Complaint - Starbucks Promotes Cruelty-to-Animals and then Lies About It
MT. MORRIS, MICHIGAN -- Starbucks sent me this e-mail:
"Starbucks has no affiliations with rodeos. The Cheyenne Frontier Days is a Native American cultural event in Cheyenne, Wyoming that features parades, amusement rides, a rodeo and other activities. As a member of the community, Starbucks showed its support for the event by purchasing at $250 advertisement in a Cheyenne Frontier Days brochure. The ad invited festival attendees to enjoy a Starbucks beverage at our local store before or after the event."
I then asked them about their sponsorship of the American Royal Rodeo, the Belton Rodeo, etc. They never responded to my question. Starbucks is even listed as a sponsor of a rodeo at http://www.rodeobelton.com/sponsors2004.pdf.
They do sponsor rodeos, but they are lying about it. This is obvious, blatant lying and false advertising! More information is available at www.buckstarbucks.com.
