Grammy-winning rapper T.I. isn’t ready to grab a Starbucks latte anytime soon. The King of the South has detailed his unwillingness to support the coffee giant despite multiple apologies.

Footage has emerged of Tip at an airport explaining why an apology just won’t cut it for him.

“I think we should preserve our right to stop spending our money at places that don’t respect us equally. You know what I’m saying? I think that until they’ve made some progressive steps to let us know how they plan on rectifying the situation, I don’t see no other answer. I think that if there’s one thing that America has shown us, there’s only two ways that you can get their attention— the loss of life and the loss of finances. It’s just too much that’s been left undone when it comes to us being treated equally and fairly in this country. I don’t have nothing personally against Starbucks – just an apology ain’t gonna get it.” (TMZ)

Over the last 24 hours, music mogul Russell Simmons has called out the coffee empire for its now-infamous arrest of two black men at a Philadelphia store.

Yesterday, comedian Kevin Hart went to Twitter to single out the coffee franchise but did not call for a boycott.

Message to the @Starbucks in Philadelphia….Our city is shining bright like a diamond right now. Please make this situation right. I repeat please make this situation right!!!!!!! Once again MAKE THIS RIGHT

Let’s make one thing very clear….This is not a boycott @Starbucks situation….This is horrible management. The manager on duty was wrong. It’s that simple…That’s who needs to take responsibility for this wrong doing.

I will address your ignorance professionally…I have no obligation or relationship with @Starbucks 1st and foremost. @hm problem came from the top which gave reason for the reaction to that situation. This problem comes from a bad hire. The person was wrong not the brand. https://t.co/kSA0wCgss4

Saturday afternoon, the coffee conglomerate issued its apology which ultimately fell on deaf ears.
