Starbucks Corp on Monday apologized after an employee at his shop in Tempe,Arizona here asking six police officers to leave the premises.

In the incident on July 4, six policemen who had paid their drinks were asked to leave the premises after some customers felt unsafe with the police presence, said Tempe’s Officials Association on Twitter.

Following the incident, netizen began posting comments on Twitter as a sign of support to the police while launching the #boycottstarbucks campaign.

Starbucks in an official statement on the website to the Tempe Police Department said that the service to the police force was ‘unacceptable’.

“On behalf of Starbucks, I would like to apologize to you all for the experience you have experienced at our shop on July 4th, said the executive vice president of the coffee shop Rossann Williams.

“What happened at our store on July 4 was not an experience that your officers or any of our customers should have gone through and we have taken the necessary steps to ensure that it will not happen in the future.”

Last year, the company was beaten by a racist incident involving the detention of two black men at a Philadelphia store.

Starbucks then resolved the case outside the court and had to temporarily shut down 8,000 stores in the United States to conduct anti-racist training.
