Apple has apologized for an alleged incident of racism at an Australia store.
Footage from a store in Australia made the rounds on social media Tuesday, BBC reports, showing six black school children being asked to leave the store for fears of shoplifting.
In the video, a staff member at the Apple store says, “”These guys are … just a bit worried you might steal something…I need to ask you to leave our store.”
The store manager reportedly apologized to the boys and to their school.
The student who filmed the video, which has been viewed more than 60,000 times, wrote on Facebook: “Simply racism – made them apologise tho (sic),” according to BBC.
