The Swiss shopgirl at the centre of controversy for allegedly refusing to show Oprah Winfrey a purse, claiming she couldn't afford it, is defending herself - clumsily.
The woman denies Winfrey's claim, says that never happened and there was definitely no racism involved in their encounter.
The clerk, who spoke anonymously, [said] she feels "powerless" in the face of the prominent media mogul's accusations. "I don't know why she is making these accusations. She is so powerful and I am just a shop girl."
"I don't know why someone as great as her must cannibalize me on TV."
Her comments were apparently translated. Lots of room for misinterpretation.
I think the word "cannibal" probably translates pretty clearly.
