Did New York police just arrest Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz for multiple counts of fraud?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz Was Just Arrested!

Vancouver Times just posted an article, claiming that New York police just arrested Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz for multiple counts of fraud!

The CEO of Starbucks, Howard Schultz, has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of fraud. He was arrested at his home in New York and is in custody awaiting a bail hearing.

Schultz is an American businessman and author, currently sitting as the chief executive officer (CEO) of Starbucks. A spokesperson for the company said that Schultz plans on resigning through his lawyers as soon as possible.

Starbucks is currently in hot water for banning cash payments at its stores in the UK, with plans to ban cash internationally. As a result, the term ‘boycott Starbucks’ continues to trend on social media.

It is unclear what the charges relate to, but a source close to the CEO indicated it may be linked to allegations of Schultz stealing money from his employees.

The mainstream media and big tech want to hide the truth. Beat them at their own game by sharing this article!

Truth : Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz Was Not Arrested!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by Vancouver Times to generate page views and money from gullible people.

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

Vancouver Times is a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.

To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” in their About Us section.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

Fact #2 : Howard Schultz Was Not Arrested

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz was not arrested by the police for fraud. He remains a free man.

Not only was there no police report on his arrest, there was zero media coverage, which is impossible because his arrest would have been worldwide news.

Starbucks is also a public-listed company (SBUX) on the Nasdaq, which means it is legally required to announce the arrest of its CEO publicly and to investors. There was no such announcement.

Fact #3 : Howard Schultz Is A Billionaire

Howard Schultz is a billionaire with a net worth of some 4 billion US dollars. He earned almost a quarter of that – 940 million dollars – during the COVID-19 pandemic.

So Schultz certainly does not need to rob his employees. He’s earning about $640,000 every day – more than what most of his store employees will earn in a lifetime!

Even if you believe Jason Pires from Vancouver Times, how exactly do you think Schultz steals from his employees? By sneaking a few dollars from the till at every store?

Fact #4 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on Howard Schultz’s arrest.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the US government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about such a momentous arrest.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been reported by many other websites and bloggers.

Yet, not a single blogger or online website published this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…

Fact #5 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype

Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about the arrest of Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz.

They would all loved such shocking news, because it would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.

In fact, that was precisely why Vancouver Times created the fake story – to drive traffic, for the ad money.

Everything that Vancouver Times publishes should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.
