Giles Terera is furious with a bar in London, England, says a new report from The Hollywood Reporter. The actor accused the establishment of racial profiles, stating that the incident in question left him and the rest of his friends "devastated, confused and upset."
The actor went to his social networks on November 29 to affirm that a London bar rejected him and the rest of his eight friends because they were black. The Hamilton artist said that his peer group was denied entry to the Ain’t Nothing But Blues bar in central London.
However, he claims that the establishment then let 10 white people in right after. You can see the actor's tweet below.
In response to his accusations, the bar came out in a Facebook post and said it was a "shame,quot; that people could put such accusations on the Internet without having the "right facts." The Facebook post added that the ten-man group was not allowed either.
1. I just took a group of 8 black actors that I lead in a play about American blues musicians to the Aint Nothin But The Blues bar in soho. We were racially profiled and rejected entry, as 10 white punters were allowed in the past to not be controlled. WTF @ AintNothinBut1 @standardnews RT pic.twitter.com/Ll150lCMi0

The statement came to accuse the actor of playing the "career card,quot; to try to intimidate the people who worked there. Continuing along the same lines, the bar stated that they didn't care about anyone's skin color and that they had many employees who were also black, and that it was a challenge for them to fight against the reputation that Terera had created on its own.
Another actor, Nathalie Emmanuel, who started as Missandei in the HBO series, Game of Thrones, He described the incident in question as "unacceptable,quot; and "irritating." As most know, this would not be the first time an actor complained about racial discrimination.
In a report from The Guardian last year, Pulp Fiction The actor, Ving Rhames, said he was once arrested at gunpoint for entering his own home after his neighbors called him to the police. Ving explained that the incident had happened in early 2018.
Rhames claims that he had asked the police what would have happened if he were his son at the door and he was holding a TV remote control or a video game controller.
