The Store That Refused to Sell Oprah a Handbag | The Oprah Winfrey Show | Oprah Winfrey Network


  1. No matter how much money we have they were always down and frown upon us😢 hopefully one day it will change👌🏾🤞🏽🙏🏽 I love you Oprah

  2. Oprah Winfrey shows us her true colours and the self entitlement of American people. She jokes with European people with this stupid story. She should shout up her mouth and have some decency. She wish that she could be Italian and European. Stop being ridiculous!

  3. Notice how Happy Orpah is to cry the boo..hoo…"I’m a victim of white racism."
    There are Black People in Europe that are receiving "Free housing, free medical and free weekly money," so why would they not sell the boo.hoo. black woman a purse?
    Oprah is the mother of Jussie Smollett

  4. I would of told them take your bag & shove it! BS. 🤦🏻‍♀️🙄

    I don’t get it, not sure why we Americans travel over there. HELLO, they hate Americans. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

  5. I was looking for more information about this situation in Rome and I just found a similar problem that happened to Oprah in Switzerland (maybe that’s why she imitates the accent as French and not as italian) So the thing was in Italy or Switzerland, come on! And if it happened in both places I think it must be something more about how Oprah approach people in stores. Maybe she just goes like a rude diva, expecting everybody knows her.
    And when she said "oprah Winfrey conversation" OMG, such a narcisist!

    And that is exactly what happened.

  6. Every body needs to stay in their own country and make it great instead of trying to mess with everyone else’s country.🇺🇸

  7. Oprah has More money than sense, if she had more sense she should of walk away after the owner showed up with her head held high. It was embarrassing that she stayed and drink wine with him digraceful.

  8. That to show never to underestimate anyone’s blessings to everyone if you haven’t yet repented and accepted christ Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please do so before it’s too late its not God’s will for none to perish Acts 2vs 38 John 3 vs 16 Romans 10 vs 13

  9. Oprah Oprah…🤦‍♀ this is not even true, I live in Zurich and know a girl that works in the shop.. this is not even possible anywhere, she just wanted to make a big deal out of nothing..

  10. And when someone tells me, shows me and go out of their way to make me feel unworthy, that’s when their product nor their presence is worthy.. if i could afford it or not.

  11. Well that is very common in all those expensive stores.
    And Oprah means nothing to people in Europe.
    She has been on tv decades ago, but not very popular here, and in Europe we don’t really like Americans in general, just because you are all too damn loud and obnoxious and too lazy to learn another language.
    Obviously the store was wrong if this happened, but since we only hear Oprah her side of the story this is just guessing.

  12. Oprah should have bought the whole store and pointed to other women customers in the store and said "You get a bag, and You get a bag and You get a bag"!!!!!! 😂😂 😂😂

  13. People are acting like this happens exclusively to black people, but not only did I have this happen in France (didn’t like Canadians) but you’ll see No Foreigners alot in Japan

  14. That is so unacceptable and should never happen to anyone. Seems that Oprah and her traveling companions were more than patient and gracious under very difficult circumstances. She could have bought the entire store without batting an eye.

  15. paid for too many of those things I dont get the fascination. Those are what my grandma would buy in the 70s..kinda tacky imo

  16. I wouldn’t have spend my hard working money with people who hate me for my skin tone we need to support people who treat us like law abiding human beings and stop supporting racist they hate us and we are the one’s making them rich
