US Teen Got Starbucks Cup With ‘ISIS’ Written On It, Files Complaint


ISIS Written on the cup of Hijabi Girl

WASHINGTON, D.C – A Muslim woman in St. Paul, Minn., has filed a discrimination complaint against Target after she said a barista at an in-store coffee shop wrote “ISIS” on her drink order instead of her name.

According to The Washington Post, the 19-year-old woman — who asked to be identified by only her first name, Aishah, out of fear for her safety — said she was wearing a hijab and mask when she ordered a beverage July 1 at the Starbucks inside the St. Paul-Midway Target. She repeated her name slowly and multiple times to the barista, according to Jaylani Hussein, executive director of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Hussein provided The Washington Post with a copy of the complaint filed Monday with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights.

But when her drink was ready, the acronym for the terrorist group the Islamic State had been written on the cup. Aishah raised the issue with a supervisor, but Hussein said her grievance was dismissed. The cafe’s supervisor told her, “Mistakes sometimes happen with customers’ names,” according to the complaint.


“There is absolutely no way she [the barista] could have heard it as ‘ISIS,’ ” Aishah told CNN. “Aishah is not an unknown name, and I repeated it multiple times.”
