THE FERGUSON WINDOW HAS CLOSED: A Starbucks executive just deleted his Twitter account after backlash over the company’s new ‘race together’ campaign.

Starbucks is in hot water after launching a campaign that encourages baristas to talk about race relations with customers.

Following the backlash, Starbucks’ senior vice president of communications, Corey duBrowa, deleted his Twitter account, which added to critics’ outrage.
