Real Housewives of Atlanta star Claudia Jordan recently had a run-in with a mall security guard in Opelika, Ala., and is claiming she was racially profiled. On Friday, Jordan was in Opelika to see Ginuwine perform, but both Jordan and Ginuwine were thrown out of the Auburn Mall because she wouldn’t remove her sunglasses, she says.
Jordan documented the incident on Instagram and posted two videos. In the first video, a black cop can be heard telling Jordan that unless she has a medical condition, sunglasses are not allowed.
In the second video, police are seen approaching Jordan and escorting her out of the mall. Jordan notes that she saw white people wearing glasses, but no one said anything to them, and that there were no signs stating that glasses weren’t allowed.
Mall officials did not respond to an email from The Root for comment.
