Man, everyone’s after Zendaya, aren’t they?
Girl was trying to buy some gift cards at a store last night and the clerk was really rude to her. Like, “throw a wallet back at her” rude. I don’t know quite how to explain it except, racism:
Zendaya has alleged she was the victim of racism at a supermarket – with the clerk allegedly refusing to serve her and throwing her wallet back at her when she tried to buy $400 in gift cards.
“The lady that was helping us… I don’t think she was a huge fan of our skin tone,” the Spider-Man: Homecoming actress told fans on Snapchat Tuesday night. Zendaya alleged the clerk told her she couldn’t afford the gift cards before throwing her wallet, causing her cards to fall out.
“I can’t make this s— up!” she told the camera.
The 20-year-old star said, “This is what we deal with…” – before her male friend added, “Because we’re black.”
I mean, I guess some stores have weird rules about people paying cash for their gift cards? But I don’t know. It just kind of sounds like the clerk just didn’t believe that a young woman of color would have the $400 for the gift cards. Gross.
