SZA says ‘Sandy Sephora’ racially profiled her while she was shopping for Fenty

This week singer SZA says she was trying to buy some Fenty beauty products in peace when she was targeted by a woman she’s renamed “Sandy Sephora.”

According to HotNewHipHop, Tuesday, the platinum-selling artist was shopping in Calabasas Calif., on Tuesday when decided to drop by a Sephora store in an outdoor mall.

The area is known for celebrity residents like Kim Kardashian and Drake, so spotting high profile shoppers in their stores would be normal for staff there. But the 28-year-old says as she was looking for cosmetics from Rihanna‘s Fenty line, she was confronted by mall security.

Perplexed as to what crime she’d committed, the “Love Galore” singer asked for an explanation was was informed that a store employee had accused her of theft and called authorities to detain her.
