St. Louis coffee shop under fire after ‘FTP’ (f**k the police) scrawled on coffee cup

mokabeMoKaBae’s Coffeehouse in St. Louis, Missouri, is coming under fire after reports that shop employees scrawled “FTP,” or “f**k the police” on coffee cups.

The graffiti didn’t sit too well with a number of people.  When asked, shop owners said they were aware, and were looking into it.  That didn’t sit too well, either, and the shop is being criticized on Facebook and Twitter as well.

How are they addressing the situation?

Here’s what a couple people had to say:

Others want to protest and boycott the establishment (warning: some strong language):

You get the general idea.

A post at Weasel Zippers added:

They like to push nonsense like Howard Zinn. So I’m wondering why are they still charging for things? Shouldn’t they redistribute all the goods in their shop for free?

Good question.  Check out this picture from their Facebook page:

ZinnThey also seem to have a soft spot for dead criminals.  And Black Lives Matter — at least, the film version:
