Like damn, Starbucks would be well within their rights to walk up to any patron who hasn't purchased anything and ask them to leave, but to skip that step and call the cops is super dirty.
I swear if they're being charged for loitering
You can "wonder why it's not happening to us" but in fact you already know.
I dont get it. What probably reason was there to arrest them?
OP, why do you have to bring race into this?
Philly, I swear... Its Philly, right? Great city, but seriously? Garbage action by everyone involved.
But you're in the know, right?
Saw this, the men are real estate brokers so it’s about to be on lol
What the actual hell... That explanation should have been enough from the start. Absolutely ridiculous.
ED: I’m wrong, seems to be trespassing
He's joking guys. Has to be. Chill with the dog pile unless he doubles down.
What the fuck?
They could have at least purchased a $7 Cake Pop.
Pretty sure chaotix is being sarcastic. But poe's law and all that
My wife manages a Starbucks: we have no idea if these individuals have been asked to leave MANY times before. She literally had drug dealers camped in her location dealing. Shes been hit by customers. Shes found dead bodies in the bathroom. Shes had 50 different types of other crazies and homeless and stalkers and angry ex-employees and rich entitled white people and every other horror story in the book that she has called the cops on repeatedly. We have no idea the back story here.
But yeah, this seems like a blatant way of claiming Starbucks as a "white space." The company really needs to work on changing its corporate image.
That is fucking terrible. Could have just told them politely to buy something small at least or to wait outside if it was that big of a deal. Those young men got caught up in some bullshit for absolutely no reason at all.
He writes his sermons on Tuesday nights at Starbucks. He's there till midnight every time. His (white) wife stays up worried about him every time, too.
I told him to make sure he pays the BLACK TAX so I don't see him trending on Twitter.
How long where they there? Over an hour? I mean, the place doesn't even seem busy.
Pretty sure I could sit in my Starbucks for about an hour before someone even said anything, but I don't live in America so
I can’t tell which is worse at this point. The same sarcastic race comments or the people replying to said comments by dog-piling with faux rage/in hopes mods will see them. There is a report button now. Use it if you think it’s warranted.
Anyways Starbucks is an overpriced mess.
Dammit I'm never ordering Starbucks again. What's another coffee I chain I can go to that doesn't do this bullshit? White people do this all the time and don't go to jail for it. This happened on the same day it was revealed a black kid almost got killed for asking for help. FML...
White/Yellow/Brown people get shit for loitering too...guessing we are missing some details here.
America is so fascinating to me
How is one of the most advanced nations on earth so backward? I’d guess because of how relatively new the country is maybe?
Shoulda bought a coffee. I hate sitting down in Starbucks, anytime I pass by white people is camped out and just chilling like it’s something to do.
And yeah, quit the dogpiling. If they guy did a dumb sarcastic comment or is serious, I don't need to read the "u srs" replies or whatever, it's not adding anything to the thread, use the report button like rude says.
Did the staff try to ask them to leave for not buying anything?
Yep, this pissed me off
Maybe not everyone reads every thread to know the difference between genuine stupidity and “ironic” stupidity
That's fucked and I know what I'm doing Sunday between 10 and arrest.
