Is this for real!! Religious police in Saudi Arabia have barred women from entering a Starbucks Cafe in Riyadh, after a wall that separates men from women within the cafe has collapsed many times due to customer stampede according to Emirates 24/7.
The notice posted on the entry door of the Cafe is written in English and Arabic and reads as: “On order by the Commission… please no women allowed in… women can send in their drivers to buy for them.”
People seemed upset about this and took it to twitter:
In Saudi Arabia women can’t go to Starbucks?
What else can’t they do soon? 😒

Women are asked to send their drivers in for them to order. What do you think of this?
