of shop assistant said oprah winfrey could not afford £24,000 bag

The owner of the luxury shop in Switzerland in which Oprah Winfrey alleged she faced racial discrimination has said it was all an "absolute misunderstanding." Ms Winfrey suggested that she encountered racism in a luxury goods store in Zurich, saying the shop assistant wouldn't let her view a £24,000 crocodile leather bag. The billionaire celebrity claimed the shop assistant said the bag was “too expensive” and refused to show it to the her last month.

But Trudie Goetz, head of the Swiss luxury chain, told the US Weekly: “This is an absolute misunderstanding. Any sales person would love to sell a crocodile bag. She simply explained [to Oprah] that the bag she wanted to look at was beautiful but in a very high price range and suggested lower priced models in leather, ostrich and so forth.”
