Zendaya Claims Shop Assistant Refused To Serve Her Due To Her 'Skin Tone'
The singer and actress took to Snapchat to express her outrage at the situation.
Zendaya Coleman has taken to Snapchat after she was on the receiving end of some seriously bad service in a store yesterday, which she says was because of her skin tone.
The singer had simply gone to Vons to purchase some gift cards, when the person serving her 'tossed' her wallet back at her claiming she couldn't afford them.
'So we just got out of this Vons,' she explained. 'Now I am trying to buy a lot of gift cards.'
'There are certain limits or whatever so you can only by so much,' Zendaya continued. 'But the lady that was helping us... I don't think she was a fan of our skin tone.'
'She then threw my wallet,' the actress added. 'I can't make this up! This is what we deal with!'
'She literally threw my wallet and she was like "you can't afford this" It was $400!'
'Long story short there is so much progress to be done in our world.'
She later added that she did get served in the end, clearly wanting to end on a positive note.
'It wasn't like a throw it was like a toss with my cards still loose...my card fell on the scanner and she began helping other customers.'
'You know what it's all love!'
