Racism is alive and well people! Disney star Zendaya was hit first hand with racism when she attempted to purchase $400 in gift cards at a local Vons.”So we just got out of this Vons,” she said on Snapchat. “Now I am trying to buy a lot of gift cards. There are certain limits or whatever so you can only buy so much… But the lady that was helping us… I don’t think she was a fan of our skin tone.”
She further explained, “She then threw my wallet. 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, “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!”
Zendaya had to call over the manager. Sooo sad!
