PHOENIX – A woman posing as a Starbucks employee at the Phoenix Convention Center this morning tweeted a threat to slip estradiol pills into the coffee of conservatives attending a conference here.
“I love my job at the Phoenix Convention Center Starbucks and I love slipping my spare estradiol pills in the coffee of anyone wearing a #WesternConservativeConference lanyard,” tweeted a woman who dubbed herself LLW at 8:57 am today.
She appears to be Lauren Walker, someone raising money for “facial feminization surgery” as part of a transgender procedure, through the YouCaring crowdfunding site. However, Starbucks says she does not work for the coffee chain.
Security personnel for the Phoenix Conservative Conference called police in response to the threat, but said they were unaware of any action taken by law enforcement.
