SALT LAKE CITY — The CEO of a Utah-based coffee company donated coffee to the Oklahoma police department whose officers received Starbucks cups with the word “pig” written on them Thanksgiving morning. 

Evan Hafer, veteran and CEO of Black Rifle Coffee, told The Daily Wire his company has donated coffee to the Kiefer Police Department after a photo of the Starbucks cups labeled “PIG” was posted on Facebook. In a tweet, the company said KPD officers “won’t be needing to go anywhere for coffee for a while.” 

Hafer told Fox & Friends that his veteran-owned and operated company has “received overwhelming positive support” for its response to the Thanksgiving incident. He added he believes this goes beyond Starbucks. 

"I think this is that West Coast elitist, progressive culture that continues to encroach into American corporate values," Hafer said. "We have to continue to fight this anti-police narrative." 

Starbucks apologized for the incident in a statement, adding that an employee was fired as a result.
