And members of law enforcement here in America are now hated more than ever before.

Since George Floyd was brutally killed by a police officer last month...

People have been protesting and demanding justice for the black community.

Police brutality has been apparent for years in our country...

And there's no denying that black people are targeted way more than white people.

People have decided to start fighting back...

And things were quick to turn violent with many attacking police officers on scene and getting themselves arrested.

It's a difficult situation...

Because obviously, not all police officers are in the job to throw around their authority and get away with violence - there are so many officers out there who are in the job to try and make a difference.

And even though many police officers deserve to lose their jobs...

There is also the large population who don't at all deserve to be ridiculed and abused in the way in which they are being at the moment.

Whether that's being verbally abused in the street whilst on duty...

Or having things thrown at a police car, this behavior towards innocent police officers isn't acceptable.

And one police officer recently felt he was targeted in one of the worst ways possible...

An off-duty LAPD officer went to a Starbucks inside a Target in Diamond Bar, California on Friday last week.

He ordered a classic Starbucks frappucino...

And reportedly used his police credit union debit card to buy the drink.

But the unnamed police officer was soon to be in for a nasty surprise...

Because he discovered something that looked like a tampon inside his drink.

Yes, you heard that right.

A tampon. Well, that's what it most certainly looked like anyway! Keep scrolling to see the horrifying picture...

In a total state of shock, the officer marched back into Starbucks to confront the staff...

And of course, the staff seemed oblivious to how the suspicious-looking item got there.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is now investigating...

And security footage is being checked from the Starbucks store to see who was responsible for placing the unidentified item in his drink.

But people on Twitter aren't exactly convinced that the item is a tampon...

And several people have accused the police officer of lying and making a scene over something that isn't important.

A former Starbucks employee spoke out...

And she said that the logistics of someone dropping a used tampon in a drink would simply not be possible going by the speed in which they work behind the counter.

And this Twitter user did an experiment of her own...

Proving that whatever was in the officer's drink wasn't a tampon.

But with the internet being the internet...

There has been a huge divide in opinion.

Okay, so this Twitter user was perhaps a little bit dramatic...

Especially considering it hasn't been proven to be a tampon as of yet... but nobody should have to endure this kind of treatment.

Here's the "tampon" in question...

Pretty disgusting, right?

Starbucks is yet to comment on the incident...
