A customer who placed an order in Welsh at a Starbucks was told to “speak English or get out”, it has been claimed.
Welsh classical soprano Gwawr Edwards, from Aberystwyth , said the reaction from a member of staff when another customer ordered in Welsh was “a disgrace”.
Gwawr took to Twitter to complain about the alleged incident in her hometown.
Gwarth mai ymateb un o staff @StarbucksAber oedd "speak English or get out" wrth gwsmer yn archebu yn iaith gwlad ei hunan! #tramorwr #sack— Gwawr Edwards (@gwawredwards) April 12, 2016
Its translation is: “It’s a disgrace that the reaction of a staff member in @StarbucksAber to a customer trying to order in their own language was ‘Speak English or get out’.”Gwawr, now that's name to conjure with!
