By Allan Hall In Zurich. I am sorry, want to discuss sensitive switzerland perhaps she is being a little over-sensitive here. Maybe she was somewhat offended because she was not immediately recognized in the store. It came as Oprah said she was 'sorry' a media frenzy emerged after saying she experienced racism during a trip to Switzerland.
I'm really sorry that it got blown up. The firestorm blew up after Oprah - who is promoting a film - gave an interview with Entertainment Tonight, in which she recalled a clerk at an upscale Zurich boutique refusing to show her a handbag.
I do not judge people according to their skin color, nor according to their income. I treat everyone equally. And I also expect my employees to do the same. MailOnline has learned that the saleslady in question is Italian, aged 37, and was not a full-time employee of the ritzy Trois Pommes shop in Zurich where the incident took place - but she was sent there from the sister-store in upscale St. Moritz to help out.

Cutting: Goertz suggested that - unlike Oprah - in Europe famous people liked to be treated like ordinary citizens. Er, sorry: Oprah said lat night at the premiere of her new film The Butler, that she was 'sorry' she had ever brought up the bag incident.
Goetz, who was ironically also a guest at the wedding of Tina Turner — the reason why Oprah was in the country, has been left to speak for her. She inquired about the price. When my saleswoman told her that it cost 35, francs and then offered to show her cheaper ones, she walked away.

I repeat once again; my saleslady only meant well because she wanted to show other bags to Oprah. To demonstrate the whole range is, for me, a perfect service. I find it regrettable that Oprah has come to this service from exactly the wrong way. I hope I can speak with Oprah to resolve the situation personally, as quickly as possible.
Last night, the star gave an interview on the red carpet of The Butler, in which she has a role. I didn't have a pocketbook. I didn't wear Louboutin shoes.
I didn't have anything,' she said. That didn't happen.

If somebody makes a mistake in the United States do we apologize in front of the whole country? Ironically, Oprah also came under fire today from the Swiss animal rights group Four Paws Vier Pfoten which slammed her for wanting to buy a crocodile skin bag and called on Trois Pommes to withdraw the item from sale.
