London, Feb 18 (Calcutta Tube) American rapper Jay Z got himself involved in a race row when bouncers at his party after the Brits music awards here ‘banned’ white people from drinking with the star. The minders were spotted prohibiting clubbers including music industry executives, journalists and revellers from the private event because they were not ‘of colour’.
[ReviewAZON asin=”B0000DZFL0″ display=”inlinepost”]Jay Z’s bizarre ruling has left top black celebs like Oritse Williams and ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ judge Alesha Dixon, 31, fuming, reports mirror.co.uk.
‘My friends have been getting knocked about and no one seems to care,’ said Dixon.
‘I need to get out of here. I’d rather be at my local kebab shop Elsie’s right now than back inside with all that aggression. What a horrible end to the night. I was having a blast at my record label party and now the mood is soured. I wish I’d never come,’ she added.
One clubber said: ‘The security guards were happy to let in all party-goers apart from the white people.
‘Girls were being pushed from pillar to post and shouting at each other, yet the security bulldogs paid no attention, despite scenes of violence right under their noses.’
However, Jay-Z was completely unaware of the situation after having a custom-built table laid on for him in a private corner.
A spokeswoman for the singer said his security was not involved.
