Wednesday stood out, though, because he was the victim of a vehicle break-in, and while the thieves apparently smashed a window and took his wallet, it was the loss of his Starbucks Gold Card that troubled him the most.
He even made a short video and posted it with the message "The Thief Will See This." Watch it here (warning: explicit language).
"Not just any Starbucks card. I earned the gold card. You know how many coffees I've had to drink, and lemon loafs I've had to purchase to get to that gold card?" he said.
That was followed with this classic outburst toward the thieves.
I wish Tyrannosaurus Rex diarrhea on whoever broke my window and stole my #Gold starbucks cards...— Chad Ochocinco (@ochocinco) May 23, 2012
It all had a happy ending. Starbucks has agreed to replace the card, and his wallet was returned after being found in a parking lot and returned to Ochocinco via, of course, a string of Twitter messages.
