She just wanted to shop for her Fenty in peace.
She's not one of those celebrities who's known to stir up trouble, so why on earth would SZAbe questioned by security? The 28-year-old platinum-selling artist was in the star-studded city of Calabasas on Tuesday and she decided she wanted to get a few things from the friendly neighborhood Sephora store located at The Commons at Calabasas outdoor mall. As she was perusing around for cosmetics, she found herself confronted by the mall security. Confused as to why, they told her that an employee had accused her of theft.
"Lmao Sandy Sephora location 614 Calabasas called security to make sure I wasn’t stealing," SZA tweeted about the incident. "We had a long talk. U have a blessed day Sandy." She followed up the update by writing, "Can a b*tch cop her fenty in peace er whut." Back in 2017, SZA was featured in a Fenty campaign, but after this interaction, we may just need an upgrade specifically targeting Sephora stores so Sandy doesn't forget her face.
A fan couldn't tell if this was something that actually happened to SZA or if this was a buildup to the release of her next single.
Sephora Sandy may be getting a lot more visitors after the singer shared her unfortunate interaction. She'll also have her name added to the list of others who have called the authorities on people from marginalized communities including BBQ Becky, Cornerstore Caroline, Permit Patty, and Golfcart Gail. Police are often called on law-abiding citizens who are minding their businesses while shopping, picnicking at parks, swimming in public pools, or visiting their local corner markets.
