Starbucks employee labels Asian customer's cup as "China"

It was a Mocha Frappuccino. And her name is Jenny.

Damn. This again. Don't have a lot of information to go on with this one, but Twitter user @JonWalkerBlue passed along this photo of a drink order his friend, who is Asian, received on a recent visit to Starbucks.

By now, you already know where this is going.

As you can see, in the space on the cup designated for the customer's name, the Starbucks employee simply wrote "China." That's a Mocha Frappuccino. Her name is Jenny. It's not even close to China.

This apparently happened a few weeks ago at the Starbucks on 85th Street and Lexington Avenue in New York. Again, this is clearly not a variety of green tea, as in "China Green Tips Full Leaf Tea." This is a friggin' Frappuccino. At least they didn't draw "chink eyes" in lieu of the name. Because that's happened before.

So far, Starbucks hasn't responded to messages regarding this incident. How about an explanation?
