Starbucks Manager who Called Cops on Black Men No Longer with Company

Starbucks, Starbucks Manager

The Starbucks manager who called the police on two Black men for trespassing is no longer with the company, a company spokesman confirmed with CNBC.

The news comes after a viral video showing two men being escorted out in handcuffs by police at a Philadelphia Starbucks location while they waited for another man for a business meeting.

 

Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson has apologized to the two men and has agreed to meet with them to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Protesters flooded the location of the incident and chanted “Starbucks coffee is anti-black,” while calling for the manager to be fired.
