The Movement To Boycott Dunking Donuts Is Growing

It all started when two New York police officers were reportedly refused service by Dunkin' Donuts. After that, the call to avoid buying from the Donuts store grew exponentially.

According to the New York Post sources, a cashier ignored two officers attempting to order at a Dunkin' Donuts in Brooklyn a few days ago. The Dunkin' Donuts employee reportedly told another customer "I don’t serve cops."

After the news broke, the New York City Detectives' Endowment Association, a local police union, encouraged members to boycott the coffee-and-donut chain.

Dunkin' Donuts employees said that the issue was simply a mix-up as to where to order. Additionally, the company apologized for the incident — but it seems as though the damage is done.

The Post reported that a police office refused to give directions to a Dunkin' Donuts, and that police unions have called Dunkin's explanation "an insult."

"No D&D in the 7-3," said a sergeant carrying a tray of generic, non-Dunkin' Donuts coffee into the 73rd Precinct station house, according to the Post.

Boycott threats have also continued to swirl online and everywhere in the world.

"Dunkin' Donuts sincerely regrets this situation, and we apologize to the two police officers who were left unattended in the store," the company responded to one Facebook comment.

"We have a long history of supporting the NYPD and we take great pride in the number of officers our restaurants serve every day," Dunkin' Donuts' comment continued. "We continue to have conversations with the parties involved and we are hopeful for a satisfactory conclusion."
