2 black men arrested in Starbucks-1

Starbucks has issued a statement after two black men, who were waiting on a friend, were wrongfully arrested for “trespassing” in their Philly establishment on Thursday.

Author Melissa DePino captured the incident and posted the video on social media  on Thursday with the caption:

@Starbucks The police were called because these men hadn’t ordered anything.

They were waiting for a friend to show up, who did as they were taken out in handcuffs for doing nothing.

All the other white ppl are wondering why it’s never happened to us when we do the same thing.

The video sparked outrage and many have called for a boycott of the popular coffeehouse.

Starbucks released the same carbon copy statement we get every time some foolishness like this happens.



Philly police have also released a statement claiming they are investigating the incident.



I was never pressed for their mocha ocha chocha lattes anyway, so I’m good on Starbucks.
