Two Women File $4 Million Racial Discrimination Suit Against Victoria’s Secret

Two African American women are suing Victoria’s Secret store in Beverly Hills, claiming they were racially profiled and ordered out of the the Beverly Center store according to Beverly Hills Patch:
A lawsuit filed by Shaunda McDaniel and Tammi Robinson alleges negligence, slander, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false arrest and violations of various state codes.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs went to the Victoria’s Secret store, located in a predominately white and affluent area, last June 16 for the chain’s semi-annual sale.
They were perusing the sale items when a woman who “appeared to be white” hit and shoved McDaniel and pushed Robinson, the suit alleges.
After McDaniel requested an apology, the other customer said, “I’m saying nothing to you,” according to the suit.
A manager showed up to investigate and said she would call security. The other customer continued to be rude and aggressive toward the plaintiffs while all three of them were being detained, according to the lawsuit.
“She instructed plaintiffs in the presence of other customers to immediately leave the store because they were in the wrong and were no longer permitted to be there,” the suit alleges.
The plaintiffs were further dismayed when the white manager turned to the other customer and apologized and told her to continue shopping, the suit says.
