Woman faces backlash after berating Trump supporter in Palo Alto Starbucks

Bay Area

A woman was fired after harassing a man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat at a Palo Alto coffee shop and posting his picture online. 

Police say it happened at a Starbucks on California Street where the man is a regular customer. 

The woman posted on Facebook about the confrontation involving an elderly man who was wearing a MAGA hat inside the coffee shop. 

Authorities say the woman contacted police after she received some blowback from the community, but investigators say she has not filed a complaint.

On Wednesday the woman resigned as co-chair of Bayshore Progressive Democrats.

She also lost her job at Gryphon Strings where she worked as an accountant for four years. 

KRON4 reached out to the woman for comment but did not receive a response.
