Starbucks is under fire after an incident at a Philadelphia store that has people slamming the company for racism.
Two black men who were at the coffee shop to meet a business associate were reportedly asked to leave because they hadn’t purchased anything. When they said they were waiting for a meeting, the store manager called the cops. The two men were arrested and taken to the police station to be fingerprinted and held for eight hours.
The arrest was captured on video by customers at the Starbucks location, where protesters gathered on Sunday to demonstrate with signs reading “Too Little Too Latte,” and “#Enough/Shame On Your Starbucks.”
“They didn’t do anything,” one woman said in a video clip posted on social media. “I saw the entire thing.”
Starbucks has apologized and says the incident is under investigation.
