Starbucks wake up today to an enormous race row after two black male customers were arrested for absolutely no reason whatsoever in Philadelphia – other than to be appearing to be arrested based solely on their skin colour.
Other customers are claiming that the men were disgracefully arrested based solely on their skin colour being black and standing there doing nothing.
The men’s lawyer say that the two men were just standing there waiting for their friend to arrive.
The CEO of Starbucks has been forced to apologise after the below video of the incident has gone viral.
Kevin Johnson said the company expressed their deepest apologies for what he described as a reprehensible outcome.
He then tried to emphasize that Starbucks doesn’t discriminate or racial profile.
Starbucks has already seen a massive boycott over the matter.
