Ward then walked with the man to the counter and confronted the store manager, implying that when he had asked an employee for the bathroom code, he was denied one. In 2015 in the face of protests nationwide about police shootings of black males, Starbucks launched what it called the "race together" effort, having employees write that term on coffee cups to try to engage customers to think and talk about racial issues. The two said they were waiting for a friend.

The arrests, which sparked outrage nationwide, were posted to Twitter by Philadelphia-based author Melissa DePino, in a video that has since been viewed almost 10 million times. The manager, under the impression they were trespassing, had the men arrested.

Several speakers said Thursday's arrests were the product of institutional racism and a historically oppressive police force.

Johnson told Good Morning America that he would like to "meet with the guys".

"They didn't do anything", a patron responded in the video, "I saw the entire thing".

Johnson, who has called the arrests "reprehensible", arrived in Philadelphia this weekend after video of the incident gained traction online.

Sharks vs. Golden Knights, Game 1 on Thursday
Vegas was first to get through, playing their final game of Round 1 nine days ago, with San Jose advancing eight days ago. Conversely, Sharks goalie Martin Jones struggled mightily before being pulled as he surrendered five goals on 13 shots.

Mr. Johnson said he wants to personally apologize to the two men. The young man filming said "I'm not allowed to be in here anymore?"

Meanwhile, many on social media urged a Starbucks boycott- we already do - and lamented the state of the union. "This is not who we are and it's not who we're gonna be", Johnson said.

"In addition to our own review, we will work with outside experts and community leaders to understand and adopt best practices", Johnson said. "I am the store manager and I am asking you to leave right now". "They did a service that they were called to do". "There are situations where it's appropriate to call the police, situations where there are threats or disruptions in our store". In this case, none of that existed. "This situation had none of that and these two gentlemen did not deserve what unfolded". And we are accountable.
