Donte Robinson and Rashon Nelson are national heroes - after being wrongfully arrested inside a Philadelphia Starbucks. The two were accused of trespassing while waiting on a business meeting that they had hoped would change their lives. The full charges — trespassing and creating a disturbance — were dropped that night.
Nelson told the Associated Press that he feared for his life. “Anytime I’m encountered by cops, I can honestly say it’s a thought that runs through my mind,” Nelson said. “You never know what’s going to happen.”
MTO News obtained pics showing the two men leaving 'Good Morning America' after their interview about being arrested at Starbuck in downtown Philadelphia last week.
And we were surprised by the outfits that the two men chose. Both men wore the same pants and the same sneakers.
The odd choice of outfits immediately has people suggesting that the two men are more than just "business partners" - as they are being described.
Some people on social media are wondering if the two men are actually a gay couple.
Whatever their sexuality, what happened to them was WRONG, and inexcusable.
Here is their story:
The original video of the two gentlemen being arrested in Starbucks has already racked up over 11 million views.
“I want to make sure this situation doesn’t happen again,” Robinson, 23, said. “What I want is for a young man or young men to not be traumatized by this; and instead, motivated and inspired,” they said on Good Morning America.
