Alt-right Trump lovers are nothing but lying racists.

A Starbucks coffee shop in an Atlanta suburb was forced to temporarily close after receiving threats from customers deceived by a racist hoax, The Washington Post reports.

It began with a Facebook post in a group named “White People Vs Black People (The Original),” where a person claiming to be a black employee of Starbucks named Shanell Rivers described abhorrent behavior towards white customers, Patch explained.

The hoax listed six things claimed to have been done during the last week: Spitting in a macchiato, defiling strawberry jam with blood, cleaning tables with a bathroom rag, sprinkling finely ground dog feces on hot chocolate, stealing from customers and licking bread were among the misconduct claimed.

The hoax was posted on a Reddit group of Donald Trump supporters, which helped launch it across social media.
