    I really have no clue, but it sounds like BS to me.

    Starbucks is a $7 billion dollar public company. So the answer is no, hells angels do not own Starbucks.

    Honestly, billybob, thats a pretty poor reason for it not to be owned by hells angels. Sort of a leap in logic. Come on... give me some proof so I can make the old fool look silly.

    PS - I love this prof. He's the craziest, most offensive professor ever.

    Ask him for proof/sources?

    It's a public company, I can buy shares right now, and then, technically, I own Starbucks.

    Ask him to be more specific. Sounds like a Second Cup loving fuddy-duddy...

    If anything I think he may just be a little old and crazy. He mentioned it while walking out of class... but I'll have to bug him about it, because I can't find the connection, myself.

    And if you can own starbucks, who is to say hells angels/hells angels members haven't purchased large amounts of shares in starbucks?

    If he's making an allegation its up to him to prove it, not for you to prove him wrong. Tell him you own three Tim Hortons.

    and if he thinks HA owns Starbucks, tell him to show you what people own 51% control of the public company.

    I believe you can also purchase Starbucks franchises. They are not all corporate owned.
