Watch Zendaya React to Being Racially Profiled at a Grocery Store
Now, a spokesperson for Vons, the store in question, released a statement on the matter: “At Vons, we strive to treat each and every customer with the utmost respect. There is a policy that limits gift card purchases using a credit card. Zendaya was able to purchase gift cards up to our limit, and we apologize for any inconvenience or misunderstanding.”
The statement continues, “We respect Zendaya’s voice in the community and similarly are committed to diversity and inclusion,” the statement continued. “Moreover, we understand that race is a sensitive issue in America and view this experience as a reminder that every interaction is an opportunity to treat each customer as we ourselves would like to be treated.”
Sadly, this isn’t the first time Zendaya was targeted by racist trolls and haters. But she seems to be getting great at shutting them down.
