Chanel Apologizes To Gabourey Sidibe

Paris fashion label Chanel is offering up an apology to actress Gabourey Sidibe after she claimed she was racially profiled in one of its boutiques.The "Empire" star detailed her encounter in Lena Dunham's Lenny Letter last week, writing that the saleswoman directed her to a store across the street to buy her eyeglasses."I knew what she was doing. She had decided after a single look at me that I wasn't there to spend any money. Even though I was carrying a Chanel bag, she decided I wasn't a Chanel customer and so, not worth her time and energy," Sidibe wrote.The incident occurred in Chicago, while Sidibe was there filming "Empire."It wasn't until other store associates of color noticed that she was famous for the original saleswoman to help her.
