Starbucks Adds Semen to its Drinks-Fiction!

Starbucks Adds Semen to its Drinks-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:

Viral reports claim that Starbucks adds semen to its drinks because it adds “more flavor.”

The Truth:

This is a hoax.

The fake news website published a false report that semen samples had been found inside Starbucks drinks in October 2014. The website’s disclaimer states that it “keeps its visitors in a state of disbelief” by publishing  satirical news. Within days, the story had been shared more than 215,000 times on Facebook.

The fake report also alleged that the popular Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte seasonal drink is loaded with both semen and cockroaches, which is also not true.

This isn’t the first time has picked on Starbucks, either. The fake news website previously falsely reported that Starbucks started using human breast milk in its products because the “discovery of cancer in cattle” led to widespread milk shortages.
