Following several days of furious efforts at damage control over a viral video of two black men being arrested at a Philly location, the corporate honchos at Starbucks had better batten down the hatches because there is a new storm coming and it’s going to be a bad one.
There were already protests aplenty and calls to #BoycottStarbucks due to it’s “anti-black coffee” over the Philadelphia incident but now thanks to a new viral video promoted by the incorrigible race-baiter Shaun King the left’s favorite place to sip lattes and bitch about life in Trump’s America will be under siege as never before.
The Black Lives Matter activist who writes for the New York Daily News and The Intercept tweeted out the following:
Here we go again.
Meet Brandon Ward. He was @Starbucks – about to make a purchase – and needed to use the restroom.
They denied him the code.
He then finds a white man, Weston, who came out of the restroom.
He had not made a purchase but they gave HIM the code.

Los Angeles television station KTLA-5 reports “‘Is It My Skin Color?’ Black Man Asks in Viral Video After Apparently Being Denied Restroom Access at Torrance Starbucks”:
Days after Starbucks apologized and promised changes following the arrest of two black men who were waiting for a friend inside a Philadelphia Starbucks, a Southern California branch of the coffee megachain is in the spotlight because a black man was apparently treated unfairly there as well.
In video of the local incident that has gone viral, a man who identifies himself as Brandon Ward questions another man as he exits a restroom inside a Starbucks in Torrance. The other man, who appears to be white, gives his name as Weston and says coffee shop employees gave him the code to get into the bathroom – before he made a purchase.
Ward, a 26-year-old Carson resident, then indicates that he was denied the code because he had not made a purchase.
“Is it because of my skin color?” he asks, confronting a woman who says she is the store manager.
The manager asks him to leave the store and a security guard approaches as the video ends. Torrance police confirmed officers were called to the location but no arrests were made.
Ward told KTLA the incident happened Jan. 23, but he chose to post the 1 minute, 42-second video to his Facebook page again Saturday; it has been viewed more than 445,000 times by midday Monday.
This is vintage King who enjoys nothing more than stirring up racial tensions. It’s not like the video is fresh breaking news as it was from months ago but thanks to King, it has gone viral and the SJW mob has another reason to go after Starbucks.
Not that one sound feel sorry for the overpriced bean juice merchants considering how the corporation has so often taken sides in the culture wars.
