Leona Lewis has been encountering the worst kind of people in London, two weeks ago Leona was punched at a book signing by a crazed fan rejected at an early stage in the X Factor auditions (the show that she won) you can read that here. Now while shopping she was kicked out a store for being black, she was told to leave the unnamed London store along with her Guyana-born father Joe.

Bleeding Love star Leona, 24, who was buying photo frames, said: “This woman told us, ‘get out of my store right now’. I asked her ‘are you joking?’

“She said, ‘No, I want both of you to remove yourselves from my store’. I asked why – and pointing at my dad she said, ‘I don’t like the look of him. I want him to go now’.


“I said: “What do you mean? She said, ‘I know why you’re coming in here’. She was implying we were trying to steal stuff.”

The woman shouted at Leona in front of other customers, but despite being in tears the singer refused to leave.

“I was so angry my dad had to drag me out of the shop. I’d never experienced anything like that. Being judged by the colour of your skin is horrible.”

    that is not good at all. imagine how leona lewis get so embarrassed with by the way they treat her and you could have been so rude to think that her father is also there. racist can be any part of the world, whether you like it or not, you can sometime encounter those kind of people who pint you down with no less mercy. that is really rude though. i feel sad for leona, she’s a great artist and a person as well.

    not a good attitude at all. i am feel for you leona that is a worst thing you can do for a celebrity. if you happened to dislike the artist/celebrity, you can have it controlled by yourself instead of bursting it out and embarrassed that person. she’s not immortal, she feels what we feel when we get hurt. some consideration is necessary.

    i hope she will get over with that trauma, she doesn’t deserve to treat that way. this is something that she will have to work on, the different ways of how people treat a celebrity. how sad that could be. :(
