“Watch out just ordered #Starbucks from #Postmates #covidiots #la contact asap,” Kim captioned her video.
The video shows her moving around the unknown substance, which is seen in both drinks, with a straw. The video sparked concern about the sanctity of drink delivery and whether others may experience the same thing.
“I’ve been scared to drink anything I order since I saw that TikTok of spit in somebody starbucks,” Twitter user @dahyunscalp wrote.
Commenters on the video itself suggested that she keep the drink and pursue legal action against Starbucks and Postmates.
“Save it, have it tested, they will test every employee there and whoever is the culprit will get a felony charge,” TikTok user @kellington_ wrote.
Some have even floated around the idea that the substance seen in the drinks may not be spit.
“Nobody: *some dudes kids floating in your drink*,” TikTok user @sandwiches_please wrote.
Others think Kim may have spit in the drinks herself.
“Plot twist: they spit in their own drinks to get clout,” TikTok user @ouu_bri wrote.
At any rate, Kim is going to make sure her new followers know how this progresses.
“I will keep everyone of you guy updated,” Kim wrote. “Please please please make sure you tell everyone you care about. Thanks for your support.”
