Claudia Jordan, Ginuwine: We Were Racially Profiled

Couple kicked out of Auburn Mall for wearing sunglasses indoors.

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Claudia Jordan made a trip to Auburn, Alabama on Friday (May 8) to see Ginuwine in concert, but her weekend took an unexpected turn after a run-in with mall security. According to the radio personality's Instagram account, she, along with the "Pony" singer, was allegedly kicked out of Auburn Mall after refusing to remove her sunglasses.

"What kind of BS us [sic] this?!!!!! This was the second security guard that the other white security guard sent to "handle us" after the first one harassed us 1 minute after we walked thru the door of the AUBURN mall," she captioned an IG video she posted. "He followed us demanding I take my sunglasses off. There were no signs stating 'sunglasses were prohibited' this was so blatant. I thought it was a joke at first then s**t got real."


After posting two videos with lengthy, empassioned captions, Jordan resorted to Twitter to vent even further, confirming that the police's actions were motivated by racial malice. "White patrons at the @VillageMallAU mall wearing sunglasses and NOT ONE POLICE officer or mall security guard HARASSED them like they did us," she tweeted. "#BOYCOTT Auburn Mall aka>>> @VillageMallAU."

Ginuwine cosigned with the model's claim, retweeting one of her tweets. The friends apparently took their party elsewhere as indicated from the R&B crooner's next post, which read, "Milwaukee we are here lets go!!!!! Claudia J....Tank..RL...Gwine I am tired as hell i need a nap lol."

The Auburn Mall has not yet released a statement on Jordan's claims. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
