Jim Jones Claims He Was Racially Profiled At Gucci Store, Says Black Employees Were ‘More Racist’: I’m Tired Of This!
Jim Jones had an unpleasant experience at the Gucci store.
Rapper Jim Jones took to Instagram to express his frustration with the poor service at the Gucci store. The New York native claimed he was racially profiled and ignored. Under a video that documented the worst part of his mall trip, Jones wrote:
“And just like tht [sic] sh*t went bad in gucci I was more hurt tht [sic] th [sic] black people was treating us like tht [sic] more thn [sic] anything,”
“Very racy and all we wanted was some water sparkling water cause I was parched to be been shoppin for a long time I’m usually drunk by time I leave stores like this cause they be servin tht Champaign smh,”
“This man literally spent over 100k in there in th [sic] last 3 months and this is how they handle him nasty I told him leave tht [sic] Sh*t on th [sic] counter we out gucci be movin [sic] dusty. Lol Sh*t is hilarious it never stops.”
Angered by the disrespect, the Diplomat recorded himself as he paced through the store. According to Jones, he and his entourage sat unattended in the V.I.P section for over an hour. He said that the sales associates barely acknowledged them and didn’t even offer them a glass of water. When Jones asked to speak to a manager, the store sent a black male to diffuse the situation. However, Jones didn’t appreciate the gesture and claimed that black staff members are often more racist than whites.
Jones posted more footage of his shopping spree and noted that stores like Bergdorf Goodman happily served him champagne.
He gave an update on the Gucci incident with another post and said:
“On a serious note I can’t make this shit up so after eveyrhing tht happen today we go to shoot th final scene at @5ive_mics pent house and he has his whole kitchen livin room and lounge draped in gucci wall paper wich he purchased from gucci in anticipation of us wearing all th gucci Shit we was gone buy for this scene wow gucci really some suckers,”
“And for those lookin I’m from th outside sayin this is some rich privilege Shit it’s really not it’s about treatin people with respect no matter th race or Wht u may think u know about a person
And for people sayin Thts spending money foolishly u never know wht a person been through so u should never worry bout Wht a person does wit his,”
“I tell all my Nighas th same thing I hope u put some up for a rainy day and take care of ur family n responsibilities. Besides tht we only live once ball as hard as u want Gucci owe @5ive_mics and apology for starters and they fucked our scene up smh. We was still dripping from th floor to th door lol.
