: Barney’s New York dissed rapper Wiz Khalifah and his girlfriend Amber Rose . . . HARD!! Early last week, Wiz Khalifa spent $16,000 on shoes for Amber at the Beverly Hills boutique.
According to Radar Online, Amber took her family on a SHOPPING SPREE at Barneys, courtesy of Wiz "Make-It-Rain-TRICK" Khalifah. Shortly after dropping down 16K on women’s shoes for Amber and her family, Wiz headed up to the men’s department. Unfortunately, he was unrecognizable to the store’s employees who treated him like he was going to steal something.
A patron who claimed to be in the store at the same time as Amber and Wiz said:
“After his spending spree on the shoes, Wiz went up to the ultra expensive men’s department floor, but instead of rolling out the red carpet for him they refused to help the poor guy! Not only did they fail to recognize him they actually thought that that he was a thief and treated him like one! It was only when somebody pointed out to them who the guy actually was that they back-tracked somewhat.”
After the snub, Wiz is said to have rejoined Amber and crew, and they continued SHOPPING, before leaving the store.
SHEEEEIIIT!! If they would have did US like that . . . we would have returned all the shoes and walked the FREAK OUT!!!
As soon as they found out who I was I would've treated all their asses like slaves, brought a gang of shit to the register and then decided I didn't want it, and I would've took Amber shit back. Follow me @FutureCEORio. no spam = follow back
RETURN THEM, OK, BUT YOU ALL STILL GOTTA GO AT THE NEXT STORE THAT WILL ALSO TREAT YOU LIKE A THIEF, IN THE END YOU GIVING MONEY TO PEOPLE THAT AIN'T GOT NO RESPECT FOR THE HIP HOP COMMUNITY.
BETTER BRING BACK CROSS COLORS AND FUBU.
for one, it is barneys... you can't walk into that fabulous store looking like he
looks. i would of ignored him too! it is called professionalism, look the part and
you get it back. he never looks the part so, hey... barneys want all of their
public relations to look great, no matter how much money a client/shopper is
spending. To be honest, I don't blame them... I would of done the same thing if I
owned a store, especially a fabulous one like Barneys.
See and all yall think this is some "We Are the World" place where white folks think black folks are equal. He a damn fool if he didn't return is items! PS...."SexyBlackGirl" you look ignorant.....are you waiting on a dick to be shoved in your mouth? And why are you on here naked...didn't know this was Porn MTO? Shows how much you think of yourself...at least get paid for it if you're gonna look stank for the wrold to see.
This is exactly why you don't judge a book by it's cover and also why I regularly
go into Saks with a scarf and sweatpants on... ATTENTION RETAIL EMPLOYEES!
REGARDLESS OF THE NAME ON THE FRONT OF THE BUILDING, YOU STILL SELL SHOES FOR A
LIVING. Please get your head out of your ass... Thanks!
Wait a minute,dont Blackhit20 work at Barney's New York? Anyway,that is terrible how Wiz Khalifa was treated at Barney's New York,i hope he files a discrimination suit against that store. It goes to show no matter how successful or educated black people become,we will always be viewed as a n*gger!!
@BLACKSHIT20 You are a HATER you broke this story to MTO you broke f*ggot! BLKSHIT is the TOP JANITOR AT BARNEYS stop Discriminating against your on people you p*ssy ass n*gga!HA I can't believe BLACKSHIT did that to WIZ!Now get back to cleaning them toilets bitch!
Best believe,if i was Wiz Khalifah ;i would not had bought anything from that store. I would had took Amber and her family and left them racist bastards with that unpurchased merchandise right at their cash register. I feel so bad for that poor guy,Wiz has a good heart.
They wasnt tryna be mean...thats just how they act when they dont recognize u wheneva u shop...rodeo plaza...on robertson..anywhere near westwood..sheeit they even snobby at the rite aid over there..besides they was probly tripn off seein BLACK MIKE JACKSON AND TOTO FROM THE WIZ MOVIE walk in spendin 16 racks.

Rico burnett from anniston alabama got herps and that light skin bitch giving it to every girl and dudes to so if you every come to anniston alabama dont fuck a light skin man name rico burnett he got a silver/grey impla with rims so beware dont ne fool
When you shop in upscale stores like Barneys, Neiman Marcus, Neiman Marcus etc. You pretty much have to come in there like a fly dude/chick so that employees would give you customer service. But when you wearing hip hop apparel, they don't take you seriously especially when they are working off of commission. I go into those and was never profiled b/c im always on my fashion game. Wiz on the other hand needs a stylist.
I hate to break it to you all black people, but Barneys and the others store don't
want his kind there.
They could care less if he spends $16,000 or $160,000 on that dumbass hooker, they
would rather someone like him come in there and scare and offend the rest of their
AA is the most insecure ethnicity on the planet, you people are the only ones who feel like you must wear the white man's clothes in order to be considered somebody even if they treat you like shit.
White designers don't want you wearing their stough no matter who you are and spending sixteen grands at a store that clearly doesn't respect you really shows how much you respect yourself.
@jaybaby....NOBODY shops at Saks anymore thats y were allowed to go in there with sweats and a scarf. Saks was played out since 2000. All they were known for was selling burberry merchandise and i don't have to tell you how much ppl stills wears there clothes lol.
I would have gotten my money back and went elsewhere. But I gotta say Amber must got that bum cause. Ain't no way in the hell I'm dropping 16k on bitch that done been with every body. I wanna fuck Amber though. But I ain't going like no sucker like he is
It's kinda gud dat this happened bcuz ni66az think they gettin a lil money now dat they can go anywhere n look like anything and get da best service cuz 10yrs from now this ni66a ain't gonna have 16 g's to spend on a ho
If it was Kanye or Jay z walking in there looking like wiz, it would be different because they're more recognizable celebrities. Kanye and Jay z are A list stars my friend, while Wiz is not, simple as that. To me, Wiz hasn't been in the game long enough and is still a nobody to most.
They did the same thing to me and I'm white. It's not a color thing, it's a CLASS thing. If you walk in there dressed in business attire they treat you like your human, when you dont, they treat you like youre subhuman. It's about classism, not racism. They're assholes lol.
WIZ KHALIFA I hope you are a MTO reader. Don't read the story printed about you, read the comments left by the MTO readers. You might learn something bruh. ~ If you want to be respected, you have to present yourself in a respectable manner/ presentation. ~ WIZ KHALIF you are probably sweet as gold, but the employees probably thought you was a common thug :/ Step your game up starting with a trip to the barbershop!!!
F- that sh*t. I would have spoken to a manager and explained to them how I was treated and that I wanted a FULL refund on all of my purchases. No way I would have allowed them to get away with that. Those stores have a history of dogging out black people.
He should patronize black businesses anyway. This is ridiculous and wasteful. Does his mother even have a HOUSE ...does HE have a HOME ...has he established a trust fund so his money will mature in the coming years when his career dwindles...has he invested in the low cost homes all over the country...seriously yet he's tricking on Amber...smdh
Lolz damn. But look where they was at in beverly hills. They too damn uppity there and look down on blacks. I wouldnt have bought shit. But @myxy true dat. I woudnt let a man spend no money on me and dat much. She a gold digger anyways so what da hell.
Well, it just goes to show you--no matter how much bread you've made, how much bacon you've brought home to fry in the pan, these snooty sons of bitches STILL wanna act like you're a nobody and a thief. But since I ain't got that Barney's money, I'm really not THAT offended. That's just the way of the world...
...and myxy--that's cold. Some hip hop artists actually spend their money on more than just kicks. Maybe he was going up there to get a nice suit or something. It's the closed minds of the store that messed up, not the young man who just went in there with his lady and her fam.
Barney's is the type of store where you can't have too "urban" of a look (for lack of a better term). So, yes, they do profile people. Is it right? Absolutely not! But that is life. As someone else said, Barney's is o.k. Black people shop there all of the time.
However, even if you are dressed conservatively in a suit with pearls or diamond cuff links and have a lot of money, that is still not good enough in some of these places - if you are Black. Those are the places where we definitely need to stop spending our money.
Whatever you can look like a billion bucks and those racist KKKraKKKers are always gonna dissed you it's in the bloodline. Ask Oprah...Nuccas with suites on get diised all the time. Keep thinking whitey alright with you with those fake smiles. Not in America.
Didn't Hermes treat oprah the same way? And you know they recognized her. Regardless of how
someones dressed! You don't know what the hell they got! That's arrogant ignorant assed white
folks for ya! The ones ass yall kiss and want to be like and look like. Shakin my damn head
"SHEEEEIIIT!! If they would have did US like that . . . we would have returned all the shoes and walked the FREAK OUT!!! "
Unfortunately, rich minorities think their money creates a colorless environment.
@myxy - Awww, are you looking for love & validation from massah? You are the epitome of an Uncle Tom... aren't you, boy?
@topic - Nigg*s want to dress & act like nigg*s and still seek acceptance from their puppet masters. The true definition of a coon. He should have returned it all. But what more can one expect from an ignorant buffoon.
Yeah. That isn't a shock at all. It's kind of sad how racist and judgmental white folks can be, especially the older ones. I remember John Legend, a very respectable guy and a good singer talked about how he experienced racism very recently. In fact he was driving in a certain neighborhood and some guy saw him and told him "he better get out because people like him weren't welcomed there." A lot of Black celebs get this treatment but most keep it to themselves knowing that's how 'those' people are. I swear the same thing happens to me as well . I usually go out well dressed and I do not look terrifying or like a bad person but people often think I am going to steal or that I am going to steal something just because I am Black. Even when I walk out after I paid. In fact, I get followed and watched all the time when I go to the store. No matter what you dress like or look like that will happen if you are a visible minority. It pisses me off too, but I think they were just jealous of a man like Wiz Khalifa coming into the store able to afford whatever ever was there. They don't expect someone like him to be there. Maybe that's it. People I tell ya. SMH.

Neiman, Barneys, BERGDORF = people making 13.50 + commissions who consistently treat stars & reg folks like they don't belong Oprah Voice
Yup. However thats exactly what Wiz gets for thinking that his trophy mutt-smut is his houseniggga pass.
"White designers don't want you wearing their stough no matter who you are and spending sixteen grands at a store that clearly doesn't respect you really shows how much you respect yourself."
I don't see how Whites not wanting us to wear nice things and spend a load of cash makes African Americans insecure. Wouldn't it be the other way around? You act like whites are the only designers in America or the world. US has a lot of Black stylists, fashion designers, makeup artists, models, etc and the whites always need OUR people to show off and model in their clothing so it can sell. What you say doesn't make sense.It is like men in the past didn't want women to vote or work out of fear that we might turn out better than them. if we want to get to the top in life how would that mean we don't respect ourselves because they don't respect us? You call yourself a Mulatto and you can't even spell it, then why would you insult Blacks. If anything, whites are the fearful ones who don't want anyone to be better off then them and if you come into a store where you would be expected to spend some cash it is a problem for them. Not because we are insecure but because THEY are. Dummy!
he was stupid. i would have return all that shyt. he shoulda had somebody call before he got there to say mr wiz khalifa will be visitin your store today. he aint michael jackson everybody dont know who he is. soon as a black person get money they cant wait to spend it all with white folks. they took his money and treated him like shyt. he could have spent that money with black folks and he wouldnt have been treated like that. thats why they end up bankrupt in the end cuz they spend it all with white folks and dont put a dime in thier own hoods. i dont feel sorry for him.
i guess it wasnt no black designers he could have spent money with. those dont exist. more of them need to go in white stores and get treated like shyt so they will know to spend that money with thier own people. we are the only race that sit up and kiss white folks ass and turn our back on our own people. giving white folks all his money and they dont even want it. a nicca with money is still a nicca spend your money with your own people!
and like somebody below said. black people want validation from thier former slave masters. i want to be able to shop at a white store like how they do. how about not fukkin spending your money there in the first place?? white people do not love you. white people will never accept you no matter how much money you got. so why go in their stores and make them rich????
Thats how the thirsty hungry blk man iz they rather let a golddigger get them for their money than a chick that will luv them for who they are not for what they have...then ur momma ever tell you never buy a chick shoes she'll walk out on you sucker...
Maybe both Barney's and Khalifa learned a lesson here. 1) Don't be so quick to judge, and 2) it takes more than money to project a positive image. If you want to be taken seriously, you have to look the part. Collectively, Barney's other customers are spending way more that $16k. They're not going to let one scary-looking apple spoil the high-end shopping experience for whole barrel; they do have their other customers to think about.
@datouch where is the beautiful white queen at? cuz you can be talking about tramp thats been passed around the whole rap game suking all thier dyks for whatever she could get. And then she baldhead with tatooes? thats beautiful huh??? please.....
@datouch where is the beautiful white queen at? cuz you cant possibly be talking about tramp thats been passed around the whole rap game suking all thier dyks for whatever she could get. And then she baldhead with tatooes? thats beautiful huh??? please.....
Man what's up wit dis n.igga Wiz tho??? Why the f.uck he walking around trying to look like Prince or somethin wit the scarf around his head??? He already got the blonde streak in his head... We can't let dis n.igga keep slidin wit dat g.ay s.hit...
Could just have been that, just like most stores, there've been cutbacks on
employees. I was in Lowe's the other day, and had to go ask for help, after
looking 15 minutes for my items. A few years ago, they'd get on my nerves trying
to help me too much.
Let's not make a boogeyman where there may not be one. We've got way too many
serious problems. "Our unemployment rate is 25-30 percent. Let's get some folks
into jr. college, and training programs. The pres. put the money there, take
advantage of it.
i would have took that shyt right the fukk back & got my dayum money back scratch that cause i wouldn"t have been spending 16k on shoes anyway unless i hit 9 figure income at least 8 figures (chi-hop)!
That's what they get for wanting to dress up like rich white folks and buy lame clothes from designers that didn't have street kids and hoes in mind when they designed them in the first place.... Just keep buying those over priced rags, and if you get treated like a thief, just shut up and pay cuz you know you want that shit.
Can't stand to see a black man with money...still running around thinking we should be out back....tsk..tsk...tsk. I have no idea why, but I like these two together. Perhaps it's because although he's a rapper..... He still openly and publicly acknowledges his admiration for Amber. Gotta love it.
I must admit his attire isn't up to par, but the bottom line is...HE DOESN'T HAVE TO BE. HE'S NOT THERE FOR THEM. THE EMPLOYEES ARE THERE FOR HIM. If we are discussing PROFESSIONALISM.... then let's be real about it. IT IS THE JOB REQUIREMENT OF THE EMPLOYEE TO CARRY OUT THE SAID DUTIES DISCUSSED UPON HIRE. I highly doubt that the POLICY AND EMPLOYEE HANDBOOK dictates anything about DISCRIMINATION. She chose the PROFESSION. So I say, Chick suck that crap up..pick your dang face up off the floor, and do what the hell your being paid to do. YOU NEED THE COMMISSION BOO-BOO OTHERWISE YOU WOULDN'T BE HERE. IF YOUR NAME ISN'T BARNEY...I'M GOING TO NEED YOU TO GET ME..THAT!!! IN A SIZE 7......NOW CHOOOOOOP CHOOOOOOOOP BIIIIIIATCH!!!! LOL!!!!
When an establishment provides sub par service or products 2 me I tend 2 stay away from doing dumb shit like continuing to patronize the store and/or spending more money 2 prove that I got it -- some people are str8 up on the rediculous!
The store workers carried Wiz because they saw a "young black man, who appears to look like he couldn't afford anything in Barney's and treated him like shyt. What Wiz should have done was ask for management to let them know that he didn't appreciate the treatment he received when he was trying to get help and that he's a celebrity. Then returned all merchandise and took his money elsewhere.
Wake up Wiz Coon! If you don't stand for something.. smh
Why would you continue shopping.. STUPID ASS!!!!! That thirsty ass bytch wouldn't be with you 10 minutes if you were penniless. Guess you're the BIGGEST LOSER OF THE WEEK, WEEK WEEK WEEK!
Jesus take the wheel
THis is why most rappers are so detrimental to the black community. He is a staight NIGGA: playing himself to give his money to the white man to get the white man's trinkets to make himself as good as the white man...and they still think he is just a NIGGA. Horrible story if it is true. THe Drop Squad needs to come visit this coon.
this dumb niggggga thinks cuz hes wit these white bytches hes gonna be treated different hahaha thats what yo coon azzz get. And you should of pulled all your money back in your pocket and went to a store that not only recognized you but would of appreciated yo money... fuking coon
Dress Like a Thug get treated like a Thug...Dress Like a Man..get treated like a Man.
Upscale places are NOT impressed by New Money Nygs(Hayle ,he's Black &dressed like a High School Kid Casual Mr. Saggy Pants. he looks like DOPE BOY money. He says NOTHUNG because he didn't wanna embarass his white GF & have her see the other side of Dark Side".Let her "act like she's Black but "aghast" no way can this White girl actually be treated like she's Black in a fancy store.He says/does nothing.He'd go to jail& his White Hoe Booty Tooter wouldnt.Shed pull a J-Lo & leave him/Puffy style
So what you telling me is that in order for me to shop in your establishment with the money i earn i have to "dress a certain way"? If that's not discrimination then i don't know what is. A person's character is not defined by the clothes he/she wears but by his/her actions. That just shows how businesses discriminate other people who are not "like them". I shouldn't have to hide who i am just to feel comfortable shopping in your establishment.
And black people wonder why we don't get respected. He should have returned everything. He's not only in Love - he's STUPID/DUMB in love to be treated like shyt and still drop 16K. I don't have any respect for him, myself, after this. Grow some BALLS black people
