SEATTLE — A Starbucks barista has taken to social media hoping to make orders for the coffee chain's much buzzed about Unicorn Frappuccino disappear.

Starbucks' entry into the unicorn food craze was released Wednesday and its popularity was too much for Colorado barista Braden Burson. He posted a video on Twitter complaining that the drink was difficult to make and he's "never been so stressed out" in his life.

The Unicorn Frappuccino is a sweet and sour pink and blue cream swirl topped with what Starbucks calls "fairy powder."

Burson says a day of making the treat left him with sticky hands and residue from the drink stuck to his clothes and in his hair.

Starbucks says in a statement it's reaching out to Burson "to talk about his experience and how to make it better."

This is the world we live in now, they have to console this poor lad for actually doing what they hired him to do. We live in a world of pansies and crybabies, man up and try doing some real work. Do you think they console people digging ditches asking them how they can make it easier. Its called work for a reason.

We can only hope this Burson fellow is sterile and has no chance of reproducing.

He must be regretting that decision to drop out of high school. They should name a drink after this kid. Call it the "Special Little Snowflake!"

@ynotme72203, it is the world we live in. I supervise several millennial age people and not only is it a lot of micromanaging, but when you ask them to do something they look at you like you're asking them to drown a litter of kittens!!
