GLENPOOL, OKLAHOMA: An Oklahoma police chief who posted a picture of coffee cups with the word "pig" written on it, which was handed to one of his emergency dispatchers on Thanksgiving Day, has been slammed by a woman claiming to be his daughter as being a racist and "absolutely a pig".

After the picture posted by Police Chief Johnny O'Mara with an offensive word printed on the label went viral, the employee who served up the five cups at a barista at the Glenpool, Oklahoma, was fired by Starbucks.

"What irks me is the absolute and total disrespect for a police officer who, instead of being home with family and enjoying a meal and a football game, is patrolling his little town," the police chief wrote, as we had reported earlier.

"This cup of coffee for a 'pig' is just another little flag. It's another tiny pinprick into the heart of men and women who are asking themselves more often: 'Why am I doing this?"

The barista later contacted the officer who did the Starbucks run and apologized for the labels which were meant to be a prank. 

"This is absolutely unacceptable, and we are deeply sorry to the law enforcement officer who experienced this," Starbucks said in a statement. "We have also apologized directly to him and connected with the Chief of the Kiefer Police Department as well to express our remorse."

"The Starbucks partner who wrote this offensive word on a cup used poor judgment and is no longer a partner after this violation of company policy," the statement said.

"This language is offensive to all law enforcement and is not representative of the deep appreciation we have for police officers who work tirelessly to keep our communities safe," Starbucks added.

Now, a woman claiming to be the daughter of O'Mara has claimed he is "absolutely a pig" and has no "business being a police officer". 

"This is my father and I'd like to say that he is absolutely a pig and I'd like to thank the brave men and women from Starbucks for their service," a Twitter account with just the name "O'Mara" and no first name wrote on Saturday, November 30.

In another tweet, she added: "For the record, my father has 0 [sic] business being a police officer. he was blatantly, proudly racist when I was a kid. He said things I would never repeat. he treats women like dogs, including his own daughter. oink oink," adding the pig emoji.

She then claimed that she had not seen her father for years but hoped that he would read her tweets about him. Then, in an update on Sunday, December 1, she confirmed that her father had indeed seen her tweets and called up her mother to "get that s*** off twitter."
