Following a vlog where Regine Velasquez revealed she was discriminated against while shopping in Louis Vuitton in New York, the French luxury label sent flowers to the singer.
According to a report sent to Tonight with Boy Abunda by the singer’s management, Louis Vuitton sent the flowers “in response to her revelation about the shopping incident.”
In her vlog, she reminisced about a time in the early 2000s, when she was discriminated against in a luxury store in New York City.
Velasquez recounted going to Louis Vuitton to buy a pair of heels she saw in a magazine. She said, “I went to New York to find [these] particular shoes… And then when I got there, nakita ko na, nandun sa display. Sa umpisa pa lang, sinabi agad sa akin wala akong size… Sinabi talaga. Sabi ko, ‘Can I at least try them on?’ Sabi niya, sabi ng guy, ‘Uh, no.’ Sabi talaga, ganun. Na-discriminate agad ang lola niyo, so na-depress ako ng very very light.”

I asked, ‘Can I at least try them on?’ He said, ‘Uh, no.’ He really said that. I was discriminated against so I felt lightly depressed.”]
