At their flagship store on June 30th, Nicole Johnny, a Native American student was threatened to get deported by a white security guard.
Nicole spoke to babe about what happened when she went to KKW Beauty's Los Angeles store with her mother and brother. "I was really shocked," she said. "We waited maybe an hour to get in the store. We were the last people in line and there were two security guards, one was African American and one was white."
When it was Nicole's turn to be called inside, she saw the door open and stepped forward before the white security guard snapped: "Get back in line and wait or I'll make a call and get you deported. You're Mexican, right?"
"I felt very uncomfortable and very unwelcome," Nicole said. The other security guard noticed, and let her inside with her mum and brother.
Once she was inside, she started testing the makeup out, when the same white security guard came up to her and said: "If you're not going to buy anything, I need you to leave."
"I looked at him and I was like, 'are you serious?' I asked him why, because there was no-one in line waiting to come into the store, we were the last people – my mom was making a purchase!"
She didn't buy anything after he continued to watch her, and proceeded to leave.
"We’re there for makeup and perfume, we’re not there to be told we'll get deported," Nicole said. "It’s so insulting to say that to people of color… I’m Navajo, I’m indigenous. I had to explain myself and my cultural heritage to this guy who wanted to deport me."
Nicole messaged KKW Beauty, and a rep responded saying they would investigate the incident immediate.y
"We are so sorry to hear about your experience at our store," they wrote. "We have a zero tolerance for discrimination of any kind."
We're sure if Kim Kardashian heard about this, she'd be raging.
