She really did, though.

Shannon Purser is an actor best known, of course, for playing Barb on Stranger Things.

And since her character is so popular, Purser gets a lot of love from fans of the show, even though she wasn't even on this past season. Sometimes, she shares the love on her social media, like this post of a crochet Barb from a fan (seriously, how cute is that).

On Wednesday, Purser shared another note from a fan that came on an unexpected place: her Starbucks cup. Instead of writing her name, the barista (and apparently a fan of the show) wrote, "Barb deserved better."

Not surprisingly, fans LOVED it.

@shannonpurser @neatokiddo When you see an awesome celebrity interaction for a change

When even Starbucks agrees, you know you're right.

Barb was the GOAT.

@marcbulandr @shannonpurser She certainly did! #BarbDeservedBetter

Although, some people were just impressed that the Starbucks barista spelled the whole sentence right.

@shannonpurser Wow, it's Starbucks, so I'm surprised it doesn't say "BRAB DESERVED BETTER"

Some fans were hoping to get justice for another character, as well.

@shannonpurser I thought this said "bob deserved better" and i was like yes even Shannon agrees but nope i guess barb is still a thing ha

Purser responded to this tweet: "Bob DEFINITELY deserved better."

Starbucks even chimed in with an adorable pun.

@shannonpurser An UpChai Down > The Upside Down. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

A spokesperson for Starbucks told BuzzFeed News that "Starbucks always tries to pick up folks who are feeling upside down โ€” and Barb needed this more than anyone."

Props to you, barista!

@shannonpurser Not all heroes wear capes but some of them do and wear it in the front and call it an apron.
