According to The Washington Post, the White House director of African-American outreach was harassed and heckled Saturday during a pre-birthday shopping trip with her bridesmaids in a Nordstrom just outside Washington, D.C.
A tipster, who witnessed the verbal altercation in the store’s cosmetics section, told the newspaper that around 6 p.m., Manigault told Nordstrom employees that two unidentified women were harassing her.
“They were letting her have it,” the witness told the Post, including calling the 43-year-old “Trump’s whore.”
“These fat ladies won’t stop following me,” the source said the White House director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison told store staffers. Manigault also asked for security to intervene.
The bride-to-be, who injured her left foot sometime around last month’s inauguration and is currently walking with a cane and an orthopedic boot, was eventually escorted to her car, the Post noted.
The women who confronted the former reality star were asked to leave the store and agreed with no resistance. And while Manigault has yet to speak publicly about the incident, earlier this week, the White House confirmed that it indeed did happen.
Manigault, who is engaged to Florida pastor John Allen Newman, will be featured on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress before her July 28 nuptials.
