Kevin Hart was just forced to clarify his comments regarding the latest Starbucks controversy all thanks to a fan who just couldn’t comprehend.
Over the weekend, the comedian took to social media to ask a Philadelphia Starbucks to make things “right” after an employee called the cops on two Black men sitting inside the coffee shop.
The two men hadn’t ordered because they were waiting for another friend to arrive; when cops got there, they put them in handcuffs. “Message to the @Starbucks in Philadelphia….Our city is shining bright like a diamond right now,” Hart wrote. “Please make this situation right. I repeat please make this situation right!!!!!!! Once again MAKE THIS RIGHT.”
He then added, “Let’s make one thing very clear….This is not a boycott @Starbucks situation….This is horrible management. The manager on duty was wrong. It’s that simple…That’s who needs to take responsibility for this wrong doing.”
Kevin’s message, however, got a tad convoluted after he expressed his disappointment in the Starbucks CEO following the businessman’s appearance on Good Morning America.
The father of three tweeted: “This really makes me sad… @Starbucks had a platform and a real opportunity @GMA to fix that situation correctly by calling it exactly what it was which was racial profiling/discrimination by the on duty manager. YOU FAILED …That person should have been FIRED.”
Following all of Hart’s efforts to hold Starbucks accountable, it still was translated differently than expected. After one fan tweeted that Kevin was obviously telling people “NOT to BOYCOTT” Kevin made things clear yet again.
“You obviously don’t comprehend well…I asked @Starbucks to make the situation right…I asked them to fix it. I said that the person on duty should of been held accountable,” he wrote.
He added, “I was simply saying not to boycott before seeing what the company was going to do….after watching the interview that the CEO of @Starbucks did on @GMA I feel that they failed in doing what they should have done. Now actions can be taken.”
