Singer and Fenty Beauty spokesmodel SZA last month accused a Sephora in Calabasas, California, of racial profiling. In her Instagram Story, she revealed on Saturday that Fenty Beauty creator and beauty entrepreneur Rihanna sent her a gift after her unpleasant shopping experience.

SZA posted a photo of a Fenty Beauty gift card and a handwritten note from the company’s leading lady. The note reads: “Go buy yo’ Fenty Beauty in peace sis! One love – Rihanna.” The singer captioned the post “Tanks queen @badgalriri.”

Rihanna’s kind gesture came after the CTRL singer said security was called before she left the store to ensure she didn’t steal as she shopped for Fenty Beauty products. “Lmao Sandy Sephora location 614 Calabasas calleed security to make sure I wasn’t stealing. We had a long talk. U have a blessed day Sandy,” she wrote on Twitter.

The singer, who worked as a skin consultant at Sephora before pursuing a career in music, continued, “Can a b***h cop her fenty in peace er whut.”

Rihanna wasn’t the only one who offered the singer support.

The company issued a statement on Twitter the day after SZA recounted her shopping experience online. “You are a part of the Sephora family, and we are committed to ensuring every member of our community feels welcome and included at our stores,” the company tweeted.
