To whom it may concern,
At the map of your shops on your website, you mistakenly printed Taiwan in black letter, instead of red ones like all other countries. Such act implying Taiwan not as a country but some part of other country is unacceptable and inappropriate.
We have to remind you that Taiwan with its own constitution and democratic elected government is a sovereign country bearing the name as "Republic of China", which is not subordinated to any other country, such as China. Any action to downgrade Taiwan's status as a state is not any better than raping the people living on this island. We sincerely urge you to correct your mistake immediately.
As a Starbucks card holder, I shall never purchase any production from your company again before the mistake is corrected. I will also ask all coffee lovers to do the same thing. It is resented to spend money at the company which humiliates my country.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon, I remain.
