A former Moschino USA employee is suing the luxury clothing brand claiming the West Hollywood store discriminated against Black customers.
Shamael Lataillade says her supervisor called black customers “Serenas” and instructed employees to follow them in the store if they did not appear “wealthy,” even sometimes documenting license plates, TMZ reports.
She also told TMZ that her manager once called the police, accusing a Black customer of stealing.
According to TMZ:
“Shamael claims the supervisor told employees to tell “Serenas” they were out of stock on many items—and even called cops once to report a suspicious black customer. She says the guy turned out to be a high-profile rapper.”
Lataillade, a Black, Haitian-American woman, also claims her supervisor discriminated against her and mocked her as someone who practices “voodoo.”
TMZ also reports Lataillade was let go for speaking out about the racism at her workplace.
Moschino USA denies the allegations.
