Sultry songstress SZA complained that she was the victim of racial profiling while shopping for Fenty products at a Sephora store in suburban Los Angeles. When Rihanna got wind of the alleged episode, the record-breaking singer sent her love from London, and then some.

Last month, SZA, 28, voiced her righteous indignation after the store dispatched a security guard at the establishment to check her out to see if she was stealing while she browsed for Rihanna’s beauty products in Calabasas, California.

Fuming from the experience, SZA tweeted this thought from the episode:

The “All the Stars” singer, born Solána Imani Rowe, also asked rhetorically and angrily, “Can a b—- cop her fenty in peace or wut?” referencing Rihanna’s phenomenally-successful beauty products.

It looks like one of the people that caught SZA’s social media musings was Bad Girl RiRi herself. So when the “Rude Boy” singer, 31, found out that SZA had her pleasant shopping experience interrupted in a prosperous suburb, Rihanna sent her a Fenty Beauty gift card to her Instagram stories.

A thankful SZA captioned her Instagram Live post with gratitude, “Tanks queen @badgalriri.” It has since been automatically removed, but was captured by The Shade Room below:
