“Wow @Kmart has 2 registers open w 5 other employees standing around & two speak no English whatsoever. Shoes are spats right,” she said in her post, failing to properly use “zapatos,” the Spanish word for shoes. She added, "Not even attempting kids’ snow boots in Spanish.”

Frankel's followers quickly blasted her for the rant, calling her out for being racist. However, Frankel said she was simply offering constructive criticism on her experience at the store. "No excuse for being at a retailer & not able to be directed to what u need. 0 to do w race. I'll explain but can't understand it for you," she tweeted.
