Actress Zendaya Coleman, who has been chosen to play 'Mary Jane' in the upcoming Spiderman reboot version, has stated that because of her skin colour, she was declined service at a supermarket.
The 20-year-old budding actress took to Snapchat to vent her agony and explain the incident that took place at a supermarket chain in North America, through a series of short videos.
"So, we just got out of this Vons. Now, I am trying to buy a lot of gift cards. There are certain limits or whatever so you can only by so much, but the lady that was helping us ... I don't think she was a fan of our skin tone." She posted.
"She then threw my wallet. I can't make this up! This is what we deal with! She literally threw my wallet and she was like, 'You can't afford this.' It was USD 400! Long story short, there is so much progress to be done in our world." She added.
The Spider-Man: Homecoming star then added that the clerk in the store not only had thrown her wallet, but also tossed her card and started ignoring her.
"It wasn't like a throw it was like a toss with my cards still loose... My card fell on the scanner and she began helping other customers," Zendaya stated.
In the end she got her gift cards only after the store manager intervened into the scene.
