Overpriced liberal bean juice emporium Starbucks has a very serious public relations problem as it has managed to piss off a huge chunk of its customer base over an incident that went down in Philadelphia.
Two black men were sitting a Starbucks location without buying anything while “waiting for a friend” and at least one employee called the cops.
What happened next was explosive.

Howls of racism and racial profiling immediately broke out on social media which is quickly proving to be the left’s most valuable tool for organizing flash mobs, marches and engaging in cyberbullying that comes close to economic terrorism.
And the social mob immediately went to the call to #BoycottStarbucks.

Via The Daily Mail “National outrage and call for Starbucks boycott”:
Outraged social media users are encouraging people to boycott Starbucks because of a ‘racist incident’ where one store in Philadelphia called the cops on two black men.
The hashtag #BoycottStarbucks was trending on Twitter Saturday after a viral video was posted showing six officers arresting two black men who were waiting for their friend in the downtown shop on Thursday.
One user posted a photo of the milk in her coffee and said: ‘At Starbucks you must be THIS white to sit at their tables’.
Other users called the altercation ‘racism at its ugliest level’ in America.
The corporation’s CEO has issued an apology:
Starbucks Chief Executive Kevin Johnson apologized late on Saturday for the arrests of two black men at a Philadelphia coffee shop last week, which sparked accusations of racial profiling.
Promising to make everything right, Johnson promised a thorough investigation of the incident caught on video by a patron Thursday and shared widely online.
Considering how Starbucks has often carried the flag for SJW causes it is not only ironic that the activism of the corporation didn’t buy them immunity from the mob but it’s funny as hell to see them hoisted on their own petard.
I would also #BoycottStarbucks just for general principles but I never go there anyway. It’s overpriced, always filled with liberals and the coffee tastes like shit.
You can get far better quality elsewhere at a fraction of the cost without the side of political correctness.
