One month after SZA tweeted about an implied racial profiling incident at Sephora, the beauty store will be closing all locations on Wednesday (June 5) for an inclusion workshop, according to a video uploaded to Facebook. The brand also previously apologized to the Grammy-nominated songstress, noting that it is “working with our teams to address the situation immediately.”
"Lmao Sandy Sephora location 614 Calabasas called security to make sure I wasn’t stealing," SZA explained of the situation on Twitter. "We had a long talk. U have a blessed day Sandy."
“Can a bitch cop her fenty in peace er whut,” she followed up, referring to Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty makeup brand. The tweet caught RiRi's attention, and she sent SZA a Fenty gift card and a handwritten note. “Go buy yo Fenty Beauty in peace sis!” it read, according to NBC News.
