Confirmed: Staff Walk-Out At Gorilla Coffee In NYC
FIPS is all over this, offering more visual confirmation, implicating Gorilla in a sweatshop cover up, and apparently triggering a race-baiting troll war (?) in their comments section. These epic events were also picked up by Gawker, who are calling it an “insurrection”. Gawker’s comments yield our favorite take yet on this slave labor debacle / shift that shook the world / nuclear union communist intifada:
Cool! My no-good musician boyfriend could use a job. I’m sending him over there Monday.
@EverymanNY has just posted on Twitter:
Everyone at Gorilla just quit. Baristas, roasters, everyone. Friday nite and no employees for tomorrow.
Sprudge.com editors have yet to confirm the validity of this tweet. Stay tuned for more information.
