Singer and Fenty spokesmodel SZA recently called out a Calabasas, California Sephora for discrimination, claiming security was called before she left the store to ensure she didn’t steal products.
Tuesday night, the musician tweeted that an employee at Sephora location 614 called security to confirm she wasn’t stealing, writing, “Lmao Sandy Sephora location 614 Calabasas called security to make sure I wasn’t stealing . We had a long talk. U have a blessed day Sandy.”
Before finding success in the music game, the “All the Stars” songstress was a skin consultant at Sephora herself, according to an interview with Refinery 29. The company appeared to allude to this connection in its response.
“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.”
One fan teased a new song from the TDE artist titled ‘Sephora” shortly thereafter, on which the singer can be heard singing “F*ck Sephora.”
