It seems as Zendaya is the latest victim of racial profiling as she claims a clerk refused to serve her at a Vons supermarket because she is Black.

The actress says when she tried to buy $400 in gift cards, the clerk, who was white, threw her wallet back at her, causing all of her cards to fall out.

"The lady that was helping us... I don't think she was a huge fan of our skin tone," she said on Snaphat. "I can't make this s**t up... This is what we deal with."

The Disney star added that the clerk looked at her like, "'You can't afford this.' It was [just] $400!"

A manager eventually was able to help Zendaya purchase the gift cards.
