Woman Buys Stuff From Dior After Her Worker Was Mean To Her Mom
A TikToker has gone viral and sparked considerable debate after posting a video in which she claims a salesperson at a Dior store disrespected her mother.
According to user Amjea (@nahtyourbby), her mother had already entered the Dior store but was ignored by a salesperson for 10 minutes and “refused to show her the things she asked for”, which, according to Amjea, was due to the way her mother was dressed. According to Amjea, the saleswoman must have thought that her mother was “completely poor”.
After Amjea’s mother shared the incident with her, Amjea says she suggested the two get back together. The second time, Amjea says they were picked up by another seller, which Amjea describes as better than the first.
They are seated, given coffees and encouraged to shop and explore while their orders are being prepared, the video shows. When they go to pick up their last order, Amjea says the original seller praised their new seller “in a really sarcastic way” because they make a commission on the items they sell.
The video sparked debate, with many commenters questioning why Amjea, who has 45,000 subscribers, would shop at a store she says “disrespects” her mother. On the other side, some users tried to explain the behavior of the seller.
The video currently has over 7 million views.

At first, Internet users questioned the decision to continue supporting this Dior address after suffering treatment that Amjea described as disrespectful.
“Why spend money on companies that don’t respect you? asked one highly voted commenter.
“It’s not ok. Your way of defending your mother was to go back and buy more. It was weak,” agreed another.
Other users interpreted this video as Amjea disrespecting people without the financial means she and her mother have.
“Ugh can you believe they thought we were POOR,” one user joked.
“OMG, she had to wait 10 minutes?” another user asked with a laughing emoji.
An additional share of users claimed that it may have been more of a sales tactic on the part of the seller.
“It’s a tactic they use to get you to buy more to ‘show’ them you belong and can afford it,” one commenter wrote.
“And that’s why their sales strategy is working. You fell for it,” said another.
“Vendors do this to increase sales,” said a third. “We are taught to do things like that.”
To this comment, however, Amjea replied, “I didn’t feel like that. I felt more racist.
While many have commented on Amjea’s wealth, she has posted several follow-up videos in which she acknowledges her privileged position and details how she earned the money she currently has.

To sum it up, she says she started financially by helping students with homework and helping them write college admission essays.
Today, she says she earns $110,000 a year in addition to equity while working for Tapcart.
There were also commenters who fully supported Amjea, with many referencing the film A pretty woman.
“You missed a first, ‘Big mistake. HUGE opportunity,'” one user said.
The Daily Dot contacted Dior and Amjea via email.
