Starbucks Customers Are Insisting ‘Black Lives Matter’ Is Heard 2 Favorite 



Jul 18 2016



In the wake of the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, Black Lives Matter supporters are finding creative ways to make sure the movement is acknowledged everywhere.

When ordering at Starbucks, people have changed their name to “Black Lives Matter” so that, when their order is up, the baristas have to yell out their new moniker.

On Thursday, Facebook user Lex Cross posted his Starbucks receipt and a screenshot of the app to reflect his new name. Since then, Cross’ post has been shared over 47,000 times.
