The manager who called police on two black men who had refused to leave a Philadelphia Starbucks no longer works there, a company spokeswoman confirmed to ABC News today.

The news follows Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson’s comments this morning that he will order managers of the coffee giant’s stores to undergo training on how to spot “unconscious bias” after witnesses said the men were arrested at a Philadelphia shop for doing nothing but sitting at a table.

It is important to note that the article goes on to state the following:

“I’ll say the circumstances surrounding the incident and the outcome at our store on Thursday were reprehensible,” Johnson said in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ “Good Morning America” today. “They were wrong, and for that, I personally apologize to the gentlemen that visited our store.”
