starbucks "chink eyes" strike again! in paris.

Ah, not this again... Saw this up on Reddit, where a user said his Korean American friend went to a Starbucks in Paris. Instead of asking for her name, they labeled her Iced Americano with a simple hand-drawn illustration. Oh yes, you know what's up. It really is the international symbol for "ching chong":

Hella racist for sure. But to be fair, I wouldn't necessarily call it a French thing. Hell, I'd be more surprised, except we've actually seen this before, and that was at a Starbucks in Atlanta. Hey, why bother with something as inconvenient as a name when you can just simplify things with a racist caricature?
