Zendaya Claims She Was Refused Service By Vons Store Clerk Because of Her ‘Skin Tone’


Zendaya isn’t one to suffer in silence.

After grocery shopping with a friend Tuesday afternoon, the 20-year-old K.C. Undercover star shared a Snapchat story in which she detailed their disappointing encounter with a sales clerk. “So we just got out of this Vons. Now, I am trying to buy a lot of gift cards. Now, there’s some certain, specific things you have to do when it comes to buying gift cards,” Zendaya said. “There are certain limits and some things, which is understandable. OK, cool. So I’ll take a less amount, whatever. But the lady that was helping us—I don’t think she was a fan of our skin tone.”

“Not at all,” Zendaya’s friend chimed in. “She was rude.”

“Extremely,” the actress said in agreement.

“In fact, I recall her not trying to help us at all, saying that we couldn’t buy the gift cards, and then throwing my wallet. You can’t make this s–t up. I just can’t make this s–t up! You know? This is what we deal with!” Zendaya said, adding that the sales clerk gave her a nasty look as if to convey the message, “You can’t afford this.” But, according to the Disney star, “It was $400!”
