Apple sacks 6 black boys because 'they might steal something'

 

Six black schoolboys were sacked from an Apple store because staff were worried "they might steal something".

The technology giant has since apologised after the incident at Melbourne's Highpoint shopping centre in Australia.

There was an outcry on social media after the video showing the schoolboys being turfed out the shop emerged on Tuesday.

In the video, a staff 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."

The students appeared shocked by the accusation levelled on them in the video
