Starbucks Backing Black Lives Matter

Starbucks will allow employees to wear Black Lives Matter attire after getting intense backlash for banning it.

The coffee store giant is reversing its policy prohibiting workers from wearing anything Black Lives Matter. Starbucks will also distribute 250k BLM themed t-shirts to its employees.

Starbucks announced, "Together with our Black Partner Network, we've designed a Starbucks t-shirt for every U.S. and Canada partner to express our solidarity during this historic time. Until these arrive, we’ve heard you want to show your support, so just be you. Wear your BLM pin or t-shirt. We are so proud of your passionate support of our common humanity."
