On the 22nd of June, Amber Lynn Gilles from San Diego, California, made a Facebook post, targeting Starbucks barista Lenin Gutierrez. She berated the guy because he refused to serve her for not wearing a face mask in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.
However, her attempt to seek vengeance seriously backfired. Rather than agreeing with Gilles, tens of thousands of people have expressed their support for Gutierrez, defending him in the comments section of the now-viral post.
One of those who stood by Gutierrez’s decision – which defies the county’s guidelines – was Matt Cowan, who set up a GoFundMe campaign to thank the barista. In just a few days, it has already received over $27,000.
