Starbucks apologizes for arrests of black men in Philadelphia store Updated: 2018-04-17 07:04:19 KST

Starbucks says a manager at one of its stores in Philadelphia has left the company after protests erupted stemming from last week's arrests of two black men.
The coffee giant has been under fire for racial profiling after the manager called police accusing the pair of trespassing.
A woman who shot a video of last Thursday's incident said the two men were waiting for a friend without making a purchase, which she added was a common occurrence.
Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson issued an apology for what he called the "reprehensible" arrests and will be meeting with the two men soon.
