Zendaya Claims She Was Refused Service at a Store Because of Her 'Skin Tone'

Zendaya Claims She Was Refused Service at a Store Because of Her 'Skin Tone'

Zendaya had an unfortunate encounter with a store employee this week.

The 20-year-old actress is claiming that she and a friend were refused service at a Vons supermarket due to their “skin tone.”

Zendaya took to Snapchat to document her ordeal. She started by saying that she was unable to buy $400 in gift cards at the store due to a worker, who apparently “wasn’t a huge fan” of her skin tone.

She went on to say that the worker was rude to her and told her she couldn’t purchase the gift cards before “throwing” Zendaya‘s wallet at her.

Zendaya is using this situation to show that there is “so much progress” that still needs to be done in today’s society.

In the end, Zendaya took the upper hand and said she didn’t have any hard feelings towards the worker. She concluded her Snapchat story by saying that the manager of the store reached out to her and helped her get everything she needed.

    Zendaya is such a smug douche. Her story sounds completely made up. The cashier probably got pissed that they’re earning min wage to put up with an obnoxious self important brat that wanted special treatment for being a “celebrity” . And of course she’s gotta turn it into this social commentary of how oppressed she is for her skin color. People like her do a huge disservice to awareness of *actual* racism, because people start to roll their eyes at the mention of something being racist because it gets cried by idiots like her when its not even true. Coddled little rich girl that plays pretend for a living thinks she’s oppressed. She probably loves telling poor white blue collar workers to check their “white privilege”. I’m as liberal as they come and hate the current POTUS, but if the left doesn’t realize that this attitude is what created trump, they’re screwed.
