"It sounds like Starbucks is turning their stores into homeless shelters. Their coffee is strong but their management is weak," said Ron Raduechel, a 64-year-old retired supply chain executive from Waukesha, Wis., who said he would no longer go to Starbucks.
"I believe Starbucks is doing what's right in their hearts whether its outcome sparks negativity or not," said Johnny Varela, a 31-year-old carpenter in Orlando, Fla.
"I think Starbucks is very humanitarian."
Starbucks has been forced to issue a second statement to explain its new policy following complaints that it would turn cafes into homeless shelters and drug havens.
