Rev. Al Sharpton to discuss racial profiling allegations with CEO of Macy’s
Herald Square (PIX11)- Reverend Al Sharpton will meet with the CEO of Macy’s on Monday to address recent racial profiling allegations.
This follows a similar meeting he had last week with the CEO of Barneys.
“Treme” star Rob Brown is the most recent celebrity to come forward saying he was profiled.
The alleged incident took place at the Macy’s in Herald Square after Brown bought an expensive watch for his mother.
Brown says that police paraded him through the store handcuffs and held him for about an hour.
Sharpton says if these claims are validated he will start the push for major policy changes in stores as well as bring light to racial profiling incidents all over the city.
Macys denies any wrongdoing. A spokeswoman for the flagship store says the investigation of Brown was an operation of the New York City Police Department. Claiming the store had no involvement at all.
