The two men who were arrested at a Starbucks (SBUX) in Philadelphia on Thursday agreed to meet with the CEO of the company after the incident went viral.
CEO Kevin Johnson will meet with the men who were arrested after the manager of the store called the police because the two men were in the store, reportedly waiting for an acquaintance, without having purchased something in the store.
The men were let go after eight hours in police custody after Starbucks declined to press any charges.
Protesters gather outside of the store Sunday in support of the two men, whose names were not released by police.
Kevin Johnson declined to call the arrest racial profiling, but he did call it "completely inappropriate" for employees to call police in this case.
"First, to once again express our deepest apologies to the two men who were arrested with a goal of doing whatever we can to make things right. Second, to let you know of our plans to investigate the pertinent facts and make any necessary changes to our practices that would help prevent such an occurrence from ever happening again. And third, to reassure you that Starbucks stands firmly against discrimination or racial profiling," Johnson said in a signed statement over the weekend.
