Last week, OPRAH WINFREY made headlines after she revealed that she too experiences racial discrimination and gave a recent example of a sales associate in Switzerland who refused to show her a handbag because of her race.
According to the Daily Mail, the Italian sales associate in question has since come forward in an anonymous statement, disputing the billionaire media mogul’s claims of discrimination.
“I explained to her the bags came in different sizes and materials, like I always do. She looked at a frame behind me. Far above there was the $35,000 Swiss franc crocodile leather bag,” the sales associates explained giving her version of what may have happened between her and WINFREY.
“I wasn’t sure what I should present to her when she came in on the afternoon of Saturday July 20, so I showed her some bags from the Jennifer Aniston collection. I simply told her that it was like the one I held in my hand, only much more expensive, and that I could show her similar bags,” she continued.
“It is absolutely not true that I declined to show her the bag on racist grounds. I even asked her if she wanted to look at the bag,” she stated completely denying WINFREY’s claims to be true.
OPRAH WINFREY has yet to release a statement replying to the matter.
Tell us, who do you think is telling the truth?
