Zendaya is livid this morning after coming face to face with an apparently racist Vons grocery store clerk who insinuated the 20-year-old couldn’t afford the items she was buying.

The actress recalled the horrific moment on Snapchat, telling her fans that she was “trying to buy a lot of gift cards … There’s some certain limits and things which is understandable.”

She continued, “The lady that was helping us was not a fan of our skin tone. I will call recall her not trying to help us at all saying that we couldn’t buy the gift cards and then throwing my wallet. Can’t make this sh*t up.”

Meanwhile, in the background, her male friend was cosigning every word Zendaya uttered.

“This is what we deal with,” the actress said.

Zendaya explained that the clerk looked at her like “you can’t afford this.” Per the singer, the items amounted to $400.

“There’s so much progress to be done in the world,” Zendaya said. “It wasn’t like a throw, it was like a toss … with my card still loose.”

She finally concluded, “It’s all love, may she go on to have a wonderful life.”

As for whether or not the star got her items — the manager came over to help and Zendaya left with her gifts.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
