It seems as Zendaya is the latest victim of racial profiling as she claims a clerk refused to serve her at a Vons supermarket because she is Black. The actress says when she tried to buy $400 in gift cards, the clerk, who was white, threw her wallet back at her, causing all of her cards to fall out.

“The lady that was helping us… I don’t think she was a huge fan of our skin tone,” she said on Snaphat. “I can’t make this ***t up… This is what we deal with.” The Disney star added that the clerk looked at her like, “‘You can’t afford this.’ It was [just] $400!”

A manager eventually was able to help Zendaya purchase the gift cards.
