The video, posted on Mediatakeout’s Facebook page Thursday, showed Kimberly Houzah claiming that a Victoria’s Secret employee in Oxford, Alabama, asked her and another black woman to leave the store after a black person was caught shoplifting in the popular women’s clothing store. With more than 3 million views, it shows Houzah crying in the car as she leaves the store.
“I can buy anything in there I want,” Houzah says in the video. “I wouldn’t dare step a foot back in [that store again]. I’m so upset. I already didn’t need to be spending the money, but I’m like you know what, I’m going to treat myself … Why I gotta be put out? Because I happen to be black in Victoria’s Secret?”
Victoria’s Secret said in a statement posted to Facebook Thursday that the employee who mistreated Houzah has been fired.
