One woman is crying foul after a popular New York Club refused to let her and another friend inside to party.
A former college athlete, who chose to remain anonymous, told RadarOnline.com that she believes she was refused entrance into 1Oak based on her race. While the lounge has hosted celebrities of all colors, the woman was stopped at the door on July 26, when she rolled up with two friends: one white, one black.
The slighted reveller didn’t come up with the accusations of outright racism on her own. The doorman waved her white friend through when they showed their idea, but he cut them off with the velvet rope. “Sorry, ladies, not gonna happen tonight,” she recalled him saying at the time.
Flabbergasted by the denial, the victim said that she and her friend, “continue to stand there for a couple minutes, slightly confused.” While they were standing in line, the bouncer let more of the victim’s party, who also happened to be white, into the club. She and her friend were still left standing outside hoping to eventually get access.
She began to notice that the doorman wasn’t being as unwelcoming to other white patrons, liberally granting them entrance into the club. The would-be partier and her friend saw that “some with purple and orange hair, some with flats on and some severely under-dressed for a club,” and the bouncer still let them in.
