Starbucks issues apology over arrest of two men


Starbucks has issued an regret after a viral video demonstrated two black lovers being arrested for refusing to leave when a supermarket hire rejected them access to the restroom.

According to Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross, a Starbucks employee announced 911 Thursday to report the two for “trespassing.” The hire told officers that the two men came in and asked to use the restroom but were not allowed to do so because they hadn’t purchased anything, which Ross said is company policy.
