Last Thursday, two black men were arrested in a Philadelphia Starbucks for trespassing while they were sitting in the store waiting for a friend. After footage of the incident surfaced, people were outraged, with some calling for a boycott of the coffee chain. Starbucks has since apologized and scheduled an anti-bias training day, but people are still coming out to protest.

On Tuesday's episode of Desus & Mero, the hosts talked about the ongoing response to the incident, including unique picket signs, CEO Kevin Johnson's apology video, and the Starbucks employee who's the star of a new meme.
