Starbucks has adopted an open-bathroom policy after two African American men were arrested at a coffee shop last month in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz says that Starbucks' bathrooms will now be open to everyone, whether they're a paying customer or not.

Schultz says the company had a "loose policy" around letting paying customers use the bathroom, though it was up to the discretion of individual store managers. 

Starbucks is scheduled to close more than eight thousand of its U.S stores on May 29, to train employees how to better recognize unconscious bias.
