It's your absolute worst shopping nightmare, come to life: A woman is suing H&M after a male store clerk at the Times Square location allegedly opened her dressing room curtain in front of a crowd of shoppers while she was "in a state of undress." Sophia Kandelaki, a tantric masseuse and former stripper, says that the man yanked open her curtain without asking if she was naked and yelled, "You don't belong here!" after believing she had cut the line, even though a different employee led her there."If I did not feel traumatized I wouldn't have started all of this," she said.
