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 Ã¢â¬â with the clerk allegedly refusing to serve her and throwing her wallet back at her when she tried to buy $400 in gift cards.
Ã¢â¬ÅThe lady that was helping usÃ¢â¬Â¦ I donÃ¢â¬â¢t think she was a huge fan of our skin tone,Ã¢â¬Â the Spider-Man: Homecoming actress told fans on Snapchat Tuesday night. Zendaya alleged the clerk told her she couldnÃ¢â¬â¢t afford the gift cards before throwing her wallet, causing her cards to fall out.
Ã¢â¬ÅI canÃ¢â¬â¢t make this sÃ¢â¬â up!Ã¢â¬Â she told the camera.
The 20-year-old star said, Ã¢â¬ÅThis is what we deal withÃ¢â¬Â¦Ã¢â¬Â Ã¢â¬â before her male friend added, Ã¢â¬ÅBecause weÃ¢â¬â¢re black.Ã¢â¬Â
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 soundsÃÂ like the clerk just didnÃ¢â¬â¢t believe that a young woman of color would have the $400 for the gift cards. Gross.
