Starbucks temporarily closed 8 thousand points in the United States because of the racial scandal

Sunday, April 29, 8 thousand brand of coffee houses Starbucks will stop the work in connection with the coaching staff about racial prejudice. The measure is temporary — doors establishments will be closed after lunch for half a day.

This step was brought about by racial scandal in Philadelphia. We will remind that employees of one of local cafes called the police to escort two black visitors — men does not violate public order, just sitting there, not making the order.

When one of the blacks asked to use the toilet, he is banned and the Manager of the coffee shop asked both to leave the premises. Visitors, expecting his friend refused, so the staff called 911.

Frustrated customers took to the police station where it was revealed that the reason for detention was not.

The situation caused a public outcry. Suspecting racial background, social media users called for a boycott of the coffee giant. Many white customers Starbucks wondered why they were not expelled when they are waiting for someone.

After the incident, the company issued an apology and assured that he will do everything possible to prevent its repetition in the future.

We apologize to the two individuals and our customers for what took place at our Philadelphia store on Thursday.
