Sephora Says They Reached Out To SZA Over Profiling Incident

SZA was trying to support Rihanna but it turned out to be a nightmare.

(AllHipHop News) R&B star SZA has taken a retail employee to task online for racial profiling after store security guards were called to ensure she wasn't stealing.

SZA was shopping for products from Rihanna's Fenty Beauty collection at a California branch of makeup giant Sephora on Tuesday when she claims she found herself under close surveillance for apparently no reason.

"Lmao Sandy Sephora location 614 Calabasas called security to make sure I wasn't stealing," SZA posted on Twitter after the rude encounter.

However, the Oscar and Grammy-nominated star refused to lose her temper over the incident, and instead chose to wish the employee well: "We had a long talk," the singer continued. "U have a blessed day Sandy."

She then quipped, "Can a b##ch cop (buy) her fenty in peace er whut."

"We have been informed of an incident at our Calabasas store and in addition to reaching out to SZA directly, we are gathering more information about the incident in order to take the proper next steps,” a statement read.

It continued, “We take complaints like this very seriously, profiling on the basis of race is not tolerated at Sephora. Our purpose has always been rooted in our people and ensuring that Sephora is an inclusive and welcoming space for all our clients.”

Ironically, SZA even used to work at a Sephora store in 2012 before finding fame.
