A Vons spokesperson said that the issue was being able to buy cards up to the company’s limit, not Zendaya’s race, telling the LA Times, “We understand that race is a sensitive issue in America and view this experience as a reminder that every interaction is an opportunity to treat each customer as we ourselves would like to be treated.”
Everyday we continue to read and hear about discrimination and police shootings. In the words of Zendaya, “Long story short, there’s so much progress to be done in our world.”
