LONG ISLAND, NY — A Starbucks employee went ballistic on a customer in New York.

Ruby Chen ordered a drink and a cookie straw at the local Starbucks, but her coffee run quickly turned into a café catastrophe.

The employee, only referred to as Melissa, starting yelling at Chen and refusing to serve her.

“When I told you the price, you wanted to keep on arguing… You’re not going to be served here.”

Chen proceeded to ask to speak with a manager, in which the employee replied, “You talking to the manager!”

Other customers in the store can be heard telling Melissa that she should be fired. According to a Starbucks spokesperson, she was.

Starbucks also offered Chen a $100 gift card.
