A California man 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 the Philadelphia Starbucks. The Starbucks CEO has apologized to the men in Philly, but has not commented on Ward's. See the video below.

Meet Brandon Ward. He was @Starbucks - about to make a purchase - and needed to use the restroom.
They denied him the code.
He then finds a white man, Weston, who came out of the restroom.
He had not made a purchase but they gave HIM the code.
