Another Customer Sues Starbucks Over Bathroom Cam

After his 5-year-old daughter spotted a hidden camera in a D.C. Starbucks bathroom, a man is suing the company and asking for $1 million in damages on four counts, including breach of privacy.

According to Reuters, the girl found the camera nestled in a U-shaped pipe below the sink. It was pointed at the toilet and recording. Incidents such as this are more common than you’d like to think, and is at least the third bathroom cam scandal Starbucks has been involved in this year.

At least Starbucks says it’s taking it seriously, according to a spokesman:

“We take our obligation to provide a safe environment for our customers and our employees very, very seriously.”
