Oprah Winfrey at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, on Aug. 12, 2013.

Oprah Winfrey is sorry. A Zurich store clerk is sorry. Switzerland is sorry. All this international apologizing can be traced back to an unfortunate incident over a $38,000 handbag.

While on a European visit promoting Lee Daniels’ The Butler, Winfrey recounted a story of entering a Swiss shop in July and having a clerk refuse to show her an expensive Tom Ford bag on the grounds it was too costly for her, which Winfrey interpreted as a racist affront.

The unnamed clerk says the entire situation was simply a misunderstanding and she was willing to show the bag, but was offering up a less expensive model at the time. She tells Swiss media she was in no way racist. She has apologized. The storeowner says spotty English was to blame.

Now Winfrey has apologized too, saying to a group of press, “I’m really sorry that it got blown up. I purposefully did not mention the name of the store. I’m sorry that I said it was in Switzerland. I was just referencing it as an example of being in a place where people don’t expect that you would be able to be there.”

Oprah didn’t buy the purse, but she could have. In fact, the  media mogul—worth about $2.8 billion—could have purchased more than 75,000  of them.

I think that salesperson thought she was gonna get away with what she did as she always did to others not knowing it was judgement day for her in that shop. white or black the fact is she offered Oprah another purse when she told her which purse she wanted n I am sure Oprah had no idea that the purse she wanted was not gonna be good enough 4 her just bcoz the salesperson thinks so, If Oprah was not sure what kind of purse she wanted she would not have specified or named it so why would a salesperson second guess her decision so the answer is she thought she could not afford it, of which she can buy ten of them purses n still have enough money to give that salesperson a bonus with u haters in front row.

Oprah was not there to promote "The Butler" she was there for Tina Turner's wedding.

personally, I think its the best thing that could have happened to her.  Not that i condone racism, but a woman who is buying a $38,000 purse has lost touch with reality and what the rest of the world faces daily.  People fall all over her.  This was a unique incident in her current life, and perhaps humbled her and shamed her for considering such a purchase.  Its one thing to endulge when the money being spent pays for a lot of people's jobs.  then one might justify extravagance as playing it forward.  But the cost of making a purse cannot justify what to me is a gross sick indulgence and I really respected her before this.  It has brought my view of her into perspective.  perhaps this incident did the same for her.  Shame on YOU Oprah.  In a world where so many suffer, this sort of indulgence is excessive to the extreme. Shame on YOU.

That poor clerk. Oprah goes out of her way to cost the woman her job and ruin her life. In her non-apology she reiterates her accusation of racism. She also tried to hurt the business of a whole chain of stores and paint the country of Switzerland as racist over an ambiguous and probably unintentional slight. All the while she clearly loves the chance brag about how she has a black American Express card and can afford to plunk down $38,000 for a stupid purse. She plays it off like she's just providing a teaching moment to enlighten us all on racism. Are we supposed to feel sorry for how she's oppressed? What a jerk.

It is HER money, and she has a right to spend it on what she want to. Charity, and starving children in Africa are something she can choose to do. It is NOT her job.

The only thing I like about this news is that it exposes the truth. So many people are caught up in the most common form of racism (which is the type that most of us are bombarded with, believe in, and yet rarely ever get to manifest)...   The reality is that skin color matters. Ask my cousin who is a judge, but whose assistant frequently gets addressed as "honorable" when folks who do not know her come to the office. Oh, well. Just another day in the life of our post racial-- unarmed black boy killed with no consequence, America.

I really don't care how much money someone has, how they spend it, but really - a $38,000 purse?  What makes it a $38,000 purse?  Ifr it were a Bentley or Rolls Royce, I would understand the price - but a purse for $38,000?  I would have to take a serious look at myself if I even considered spending $38,000 on a purse.

I feel bad Oprah didn't get another 40k purse.   What happened to all her starving "children" in Africa?

@VSS hey don't talk like that whoever u are, Oprah has been generous 2much 2 the people n she has done nothing but give back 2 the people so she deserves whatever she decides to buy no matter how much it cost. it is sad for people to say what you just said about the woman who has done a lot of things for the public out of goodness of her heart n when she buys herself something nice with her own money then you do not like how cruel n sad? geez give a woman space to have some time to spoil her n I am sure you do that too every now and then, now back off a bit k.

@PenelopePancreas I watched the original interview where Oprah spoke about this.  Its true that she purposely didnt mention the name of the store.  Papparazi released that information.  Nobody at all ever called Oprah Oppressed. 

 Somebody here is a jerk but it isnt Oprah.

@PenelopePancreas what is wrong with you people? something must be eating u up, some personal vendetta against Oprah or something. she has the money and she can afford to buy whatever she wants, wherever she wants it has nothing to do with her money or you sad that she can afford it n u can't maybe so get a life Oprah has money n u saying shez a jerk is pathetic n low even 4 u. you saying that just because she can buy that purse n u stuck with urs n she definitely doesn't need you 2 feel sorry 4 her believe that

@PenelopePancreas  Why are you so angry? She was treated in the same way minorities are treated daily! She is rich and the treatment she received shows that money can only insulate you to some extent when it comes to race. She has a black Amex card, I don't know why so many people are so sad about that. There are many people who are very very rich for making sex tapes, paid for looking good, and paid for pretending to sing and shaking their big behinds. This woman WORKED hard for her money. I do not understand the bile being thrown at her.

I mean, seriously, be happy for others who deserve their good fortune. I think she is awesome.

@GlennyScobbs as 4 u, u clearly have issues, u saying this as if u were there or maybe u were there? maybe the salesperson is lying out of her tooth n she should be grateful that Oprah was so nice that she made such a nice statement  on her behalf too while trying to control the racism card the lady clearly made so u are her stalker whereby u wld know just how many lies she has made, plz go see therapist or something.  if she wanted another purse she would asked 4 another but she knew she went in there to buy that purse so why would she offer her another one when she specified which one she wanted, huh! clearly she thought she could not afford it n u might be right about one thing she did not know who Oprah was, which means she was doing what she usually does to every black person who shops there but now it was time 4 her 2 be exposed in the public 4 what n who she is?

@Fairplay2 I'm guessing you can't afford it, so you make fun of it. Ever spend $4 for a cup of coffee? I mean really, $4 for something you can make yourself for 25 cents? It's all a matter of perspective. To Oprah, $38K is far less than $4 to you.

@SukeMadiq What children? n shez helping so if she wants to indulge I say u Go Oprah n they are not starving anymore. I am m sure of it k

BenevolentLawyer

@SukeMadiq The starving children in Africa are NOT Oprah's job to assist. It is a matter for the world. The Africans that have all these resources and have billionaires and paupers should be the ones that people MOCK. Oprah has NOTHING to do with the plight of the mismanaged continent. No offense to Africa, all love. But I am speaking the truth.

@SukeMadiq that's not the point.  The point is she should not have been treated like she can't afford something because of race, as this is an indignity blacks in stores must suffer through every day.

@BenevolentLawyer @PenelopePancreas Give me a break.  If racism were so rampant in America, our current socialist black president, Barack Obama, wouldn't have been elected president -- twice.  Stop using racism as an excuse for everything.

ErinStearns

It had nothing to do with race. Since Obama came into office there has been an unsaid race war and its actually white people who are the victims. They're called racists non stop. When really it's the blacks who hate the whites. I mean look how many stupid white people voted for Obama just so they didn't appear racist. And look how many black people feel negatively towards whites for no apparent reason.

@margoed1 @lollypod the racist is oprah..did you even listen to the account of the other side? Oprah has done this before and used and abused her super power in the media and all of her worshippers who will foam at the mouth at anything and anyone she has a beef with,which could be anyone without them doing anything wrong. She does not live in the real world and does not understand normal people especially with shopping which seems to be where she calls others racists many many times in the past! To me that and a few other things in the past make oprah the bigot and racist as she would not have blown up and rushed out of the store and accused them off reprehensible behavior that makes an international incident  Because  of her "queen of all media" title  and WORSHIP that hello the media gave her and created..... that extreme outrage because of her WORSHIPPERS and those that bow down  in the media and do the condemning and hate spewing towards those they feel have slighted their QUEEN...It is quite disgusting and racist of her followers and her because they and she always accuse those she feels offended her QUEENNESS so of course she must abuse her power to tell her masses and have them and the MEDIA to abuse their power to attack ATTACK and OSTRACIZE AND DEMONIZE this regular little store that did no harm to anyone or her....EVIL B111TCHES THAT DO STUFF LIKE  THAT SHOULD BE PUT IN PRISION AS SHE KNOWS THE BACKLASH AND HARM THAT CAN COME DOWN ON THOSE SHE ATTACKS...AND OF COURSE IT IS ALWAYS A WHITE PERSON SHE ATTACKS AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW...SOMEONE IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD USUALLY BUT ALWAYS WHITE...IF THAT DIDN'T MAKE HER THE BIGGEST RACIST WITCH ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH I DO NOT KNOW WHAT WOULD...SHE USES AND ABUSES HER MEDIA PRESENCE TO RAPE AND PILLAGE THESE BUSINESSES AND THE MEDIA AND HER FANS DO THE RAPING AND PILLAGING AND ANYONE THAT GOES AGAINST HER AND STANDS UP FOR THE LITTLE PERSON WILL GET SIMILARY ATTACKED..SHE IS QUITE EVIL AS HER HISTORY OF DOING THINGS LIKE THIS ARE QUITE LONG!!!

@GlennyScobbs @margoed1 @lollypod Oprah didn't attack anyone.  She was ASKED if she ever experienced racism and she cited this experience but DID NOT name the clerk, allowing them to stay anonymous.  But because the store want free publicity for their $38,000 handbag, the store outed itself.  I doubt the store's decision to out themselves has hurt business; just the opposite probably, as many rich people want to shop in a store so exclusive that even the most powerful woman in the world was considered unworthy.
