Grammy-winning rapper T.I. really won’t be drinking Starbucks anytime soon. The hip-hop star has returned to social media this weekend to explain his disgust with the giant coffee franchise.

Tip went to Instagram Sunday (April 15) to serve up his big explanation for why Starbucks as a whole is holding an L right now.

This is a start. More to come. #USorELSE

Saturday afternoon, Starbucks issued its apology which ultimately fell on deaf ears.

We apologize to the two individuals and our customers for what took place at our Philadelphia store on Thursday. pic.twitter.com/suUsytXHks

Instead of making people feel better, the apology has sparked a range of deep-rooted frustrations and tense emotions.

I hope that more than just an apology, @Starbucks will use its platform to generate conversations about this. Why is it so ridiculously easy to call cops on blk men? Or shoot at a 14 year old who’s knocking on a door. https://t.co/RL1hJR1IFL

I’m done. I’m absolutely done with watching while Black people are criminalized, arrested, shot at, and executed because white folks cannot police their imagination.

There is no earthly reason two men simply waiting on a friend at @Starbucks should have ended up in handcuffs.

You’ll notice that nowhere in this “apology” was an admission of wrongdoing. Starbucks doesn’t think the employees were wrong to call the cops on those men, they’re just sorry the men got arrested over it. https://t.co/wcE6s20lwk

Yes, the two men were asked to leave @Starbucks, as the Philly Police said in their statement, but they sat there peacefully and had the nerve to ask WHY they were being asked to leave. What counts as peaceful protest? Isn’t that what this is?!

Bullshit apology #BoycottStarbucks https://t.co/9Hm4ZcbjQV

This is a bad statement, written by lawyers and public relations folks who purposefully use vague language—“these matters” & “these type of situations.” https://t.co/7gAXSbXGug

You were started by progressives in the Northwest. This is about as far from a progressive statement of accountability as you can get. Disappointed in you to the point of boycotting you until you do the right thing. What does Howard Schultz think of all this? #BoycottStarbucks
