Staples just lost a customer.
Actress and comedian Sherri Shepherd recently took to social media to share a terrible experience she endured while shopping at Staples with a friend. The former co-host of The View says that, after she and a friend asked to use the store restroom, she was lied to and later cursed out.
She began, "My girlfriend @kimrtavares & I were there to get supplies for a seminar when Kim asked where was their restroom & we were told they were broken and we needed to go to @riteaid – Kim walked over to #RiteAid but their bathroom was in use so she came back to #Staples. Another employee gave us the combination to their #bathroom which worked fine."
When she confronted the employee for lying about the bathroom, Shepherd says the she began screaming "I am not going to take this sh*t. I am not going to take this f*cking sh*t!"
"#Staples this treatment by an employee is unacceptable," Shepherd's post continued. "It was embarrassing - and had I had my son Jeffrey w me it would've been a different situation. Your employees are participating in racial profiling."
Shepherd said that she plans to take her business elsewhere, and urged her followers to share her story across social media.
