New York: The Swiss boutique clerk , who was accused of making racist comments to Oprah Winfery, has slammed the talk-show host, claiming that Winfrey`s account "is not true" and "absurd."

The unidentified Italian woman, who has worked at Zurich`s high-class ` Trois Pommes` shop for 5 years, told Switzerland`s SonntagsBlick newspaper that she would never say something like `it`s too expensive for you`, to a customer, the New York Daily News reported.

The shop attendant said that she doesn`t know why Winfery was making such accusations, adding that Winfrey is so powerful and she is just a shop girl.

The unnamed lady added that she doesn`t know why someone as great as Winfrey must cannibalize her on TV, over a 38,000-dollar Tom Ford handbag flap.

Meanwhile, the owner of the boutique has said that the incident between Winfrey and a sales assistant was just a "misunderstanding".
