Zendaya claims she was refused service at a store due to her “skin tone.”
The 20-year-old actress took to Snapchat to share the ordeal she and a friend faced while attempting to buy $400 worth of gift cards from Vons supermarket.
Zendaya started by saying that she was refused service at the store by 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.
