Your Manager’s Racist …
Calls Black Clients ‘Serenas’!!!

An employee at Moschino USA has a code name for black clients who don’t look like ballers — “Serenas” … so claims an ex-employee who’s suing the company.
Shamael Lataillade is suing the Italian luxury clothing company, claiming her female supervisor at the WeHo shop had a specific protocol for black clients if they didn’t have diamonds or carry name brands. In docs obtained by TMZ, she says the woman would call them a “Serena” and instructed other employees to follow and watch them closely — sometimes even writing down their license plates.
It’s not spelled out in the suit, but the alleged code would seem to be a reference to Serena Williams.
What’s more … Shamael claims the supervisor told employees to tell “Serenas” they were out of stock on many items — and even called cops once to report a suspicious black customer. She says the guy turned out to be a high-profile rapper, but she doesn’t name him.
On a personal level, Shamael — a black, Haitian-American woman — claims the supervisor discriminated against her and mocked her as someone who practices voodoo. She was canned for complaining to corporate about the “Serena” code word and other things … according to the suit.
She’s suing Moschino for unspecified damages. The company tells us it denies Shamael’s allegations and adds … it “complies with applicable equal employment laws and values and respects all customers and clients regardless of their race or background.”
