A man is claiming he was the victim of racism at a South Bay Starbucks.
Brandon Ward says he asked for the bathroom code at the store in Torrance back in January, but an employee told him he had to buy something first. Moments later, Ward says he saw a white man get the code without buying anything. Ward then confronted the employee and was escorted out by a security guard.
Ward posted a video of the altercation, but it didn't gain any traction until two black men were recently arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks, and now his video is going viral. The Starbucks CEO has apologized to the men in Philly, but has not commented on Ward's situation.
