Victoria’s Secret apologizes to Black woman accused of shoplifting while returning item

Jovita Jones, a Howard University graduate and tutor from Memphis, Tennessee, says she was a victim of racial profiling after being falsely accused and handcuffed for allegedly shoplifting at Victoria’s Secret store.

On Monday, Jones came to a Victoria’s Secret at Carriage Crossing in Collierville to ask a sales clerk to remove the sensor left on the bra that she bought earlier in the store for which she had a receipt with.
