Starbucks to Open Bathrooms to All After Philly Arrests

Venti latte for I.P. Freely! Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz announced Thursday that the coffee chain's bathrooms will now be open to anyone--including non-customers--after two black men were arrested at a Philadelphia store last month. "We don’t want to become a public bathroom, but we’re going to make the right decision 100 percent of the time and give people the key,” Schultz said in an address to the Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C. "We don’t want anyone at Starbucks to feel as if we are not giving access to you to the bathroom because you are less than." On April 12, a Starbucks employee called the cops on Donte Robinson and Rashon Nelson after they asked to use the bathroom before ordering and were told bathrooms are only for paying customers.
