There was a tornado in Brooklyn yesterday. Witnesses in hipsterdom's Mecca say the twister started off cool but got lame once everyone else heard about it. (Rimshot?) Anyway, the point is that all that wind and rain allowed Gawker to run with this ridiculous headline: "Did Starbucks Leave Its Customers to Blow Away in the Storm?"
So "has soulless Starbucks reached a new low," as Gawker asks? Of course it hasn't.
What actually happened is this: one Long Island location (one store!) asked its customers to leave after the storm knocked out its lights. Grrr! Evil corporation is so...not evil.
