PHILADELPHIA, PA -- A lot of people were heated after a Philladelphia Starbucks barista refused a cop permission to use the bathroom because he didn't make a purchase. When the officer's friend shared what happened on Facebook, threats of boycotting the chain and other negative reactions ultimately forced the company to respond.

Suffice it to the company has apologized to the sergeant who had to hold it, and they say they’re taking steps to make sure this doesn’t happen again.
