Zendaya claims she was refused service because of her 'skin tone'
Zendaya has claimed that she was refused service in a store because of her "skin tone".
The 20-year-old singer-and-actress took to Snapchat on Tuesday (06.09.16) to post a series of short videos that explained the ordeal she went through when visiting a branch of Vons - a supermarket chain in North America.
In the videos, the 'Shake It Up' star said: "So we just got out of this Vons. Now I am trying to buy a lot of gift cards. There are certain limits or whatever so you can only by so much, but the lady that was helping us ... I don't think she was a fan of our skin tone. 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."
The 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' star then corrected herself in a later video, saying that the store clerk didn't throw her wallet, but actually tossed it toward her.
She said: "You know what it's all love! You know, may she go on to have a wonderful life. Yo, shout out the manager for coming and helping - I got my gift cards!"
