Grammy Award-nominated recording artist Tory Lanez claimed he was recently a victim of shopping while Black at luxury boutique in a Canadian Mall. But, instead of calling out the boutique and informing others to not patronize the store, he decided to get revenge by going back and spending $35,000 there.
Lanez explained his actions on Twitter: “35,000 in HOLT RENFREW … cuz this Nigga tried to play me like I was broke.”
In tweets that have now been deleted, Lanez calls out the boutique sales rep he accuses of discriminating against him. Lanez reportedly said: “I gotta get him. Look at his ass. Say hello. Yeah, we balled out your shit. We walked in the store…he ain’t think we was gonna buy nothing. We balled out his shit. We Gucci down. We Louis Vuitton down…”
After receiving backlash for going back and spending money at the same store that racially-profiled against him, Lanez defended his actions, tweeting: “It’s not the fact that we spent $35K in there, we were already going there to do that. It’s the fact that HE didn’t get the percentage.”
