Apple has apologised to six schoolboys asked to leave
one of their shops in Australia, in what the students
described as a racist incident.
Footage of the incident at Melbourne’s Highpoint
shopping centre emerged on Tuesday sparking a social
media outcry.
A staff member can be heard saying security are
concerned that the boys will shoplift.
Apple said the store manager apologised to the boys,
who are all black, and their school principal.
The student who filmed the video, Francis Ose, said on
Facebook: “Simply racism – made them apologise tho
(sic).”
Another of the boys involved, Mohamed Semra, later
said on Facebook that they were satisfied with the
response from Apple.
“They apologised, so we’re chilling, no need to take it
further,” he wrote.
The video of the incident has been viewed more than
62,000 times on Facebook and sparked debate across
social media.
In it, a staff member can be heard saying: “These guys
are … just a bit worried you might steal something”.
When the boys protest, the staff member tells them:
“End of discussion – I need to ask you to leave our
store.”
All of the students in the video are in Year 10 and
attend Maribyrnong College in Melbourne.
