“Make This Right”

In the tweet above, Kevin Hart advises Starbucks to make this situation right.  The Philadelphia Eagles won the 2018 Super Bowl and the Villanova Wildcats won the 2018 NCAA Tournament.  The Philadelphia 76ers are also playing great.  They defeated the Miami Heat in the first game of their playoff series.

Coincidentally, one of Hart’s funniest jokes is about Starbucks:

It’s difficult to fully respect Hart although he’s sending the right message.  The comedian’s recent cheating scandal makes it hard to take him serious.

While Kevin’s situation was bad, Russell Simmons was dragged by the #MeToo movement making it impossible to take the music executive serious.  In the Instagram post above, Simmons demands the following:

  1. Manager fired
  2. 2 black men paid
  3. Proper apology

Starbucks CEO Apologizes

Slate reports that the CEO of Starbucks, Kevin Johnson has apologized for the incident.  In a statement on the company’s website, Johnson explains that the store manager didn’t want the men arrested.

In the tweet below, Hart calls out the manager and says that he needs to take responsibility for his actions:
