Usually people post pictures of their Starbucks cups with their names often butchered by baristas.

But one Florida customer found a disturbing note on the receipt attached to his cup that's going wildly viral.

The unidentified customer says he ordered a grande cup of white mocha and the attached receipt had a joke that read: "DIABETES, HERE I COME".

Not only did he call the message rude, but added that the note was also incredibly hurtful because it was so personal because his two sisters suffer from Type 1 diabetes.

Though the customer says he was hurt, he said he didn't need an apology. Instead he wrote a message of his own back to the baristas, writing: "Two of my sisters are diabetic, so...not funny."

The Starbucks in question says it's now taking steps to make sure this incident does not happen again.
