Man Banned From Starbucks For Life For Standing Up For Handicapped People

A St. Petersburg, Florida, man has been banned from Starbucks for life because he told people illegally parked in handicapped spaces to move.

Starbucks sent Rob Rowen a letter stating he has been disrupting business and threatening customers and is not welcome back, reports WTSP.

“I regret to inform you you’ve been expelled from Starbucks,” the letter states.

Rowan expected the letter to be an apology from the chain because the South Dale Mabry, Tampa, location’s manager had kicked him out. Instead, Rowen is banned from any and all Starbucks.

It all began because Rowen got tired of seeing people park in handicapped spaces when they were capable of walking the extra distance to the store.

“My son-in-law has muscular dystrophy and is in a power wheelchair,” Rowen said. “I’ve seen so many times, the issue of him trying to find a parking space.”

Rowen began telling illegally parked Starbucks visitors to move.

“I threatened to embarrass him by telling everybody he was parked illegally,” Rowen said.

He took a picture of another illegally parked vehicle.
