Don’t ever try to play Niecy Nash.

This is a lesson the folks behind the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic had to learn when they allegedly disinvited the Emmy-nominee to their annual event in Los Angeles last Saturday (Oct. 6).

The Claws star took to social media to share that she was personally invited to the event at Will Rogers Polo Club by the founder of The A List, Ashlee Margolis, who hosts exclusive events for high-end brands. But then all of a sudden, Niecy’s invitation was rescinded on the day of the A-list shindig.

In a series of now-deleted tweets, she wrote the following: “My invite was rescinded bcuz I was the wrong caliber of guest,” she tweeted. “2x Emmy nominee. Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, #1 summer show Claws. NOT white. Let’s see who makes the cut… smh.”

She also stressed that she’s boycotting the Veuve Clicquot brand all together.

“I wouldn’t come to your event if you paid me. Wait u wouldn’t. I’m not white.”

Not to undermine Niecy’s feelings or sentiment, but there were a few Black celebs at the event including “Lyft Bae” Kendrick SampsonRosario Dawson and Harold Perrineau. Nevertheless, we still want to know why her invite was snatched away. Was it because she wasn’t the “right kind” of Black celebrity? Or was something else going on?

  1. Terry Pringle on said:

    Didn’t they know she was black when she was originally invited or do they just invite random people & turn around and disinvite them when they look at a picture of the person. Sounds to me like the disinvite was for another reason.

  2. Something tells me the disinvite had nothing to do with her race. I tried watching that pornographic trash she stars in. I couldn’t get through a whole 15 minutes of that garbage. I’d be embarrassed to be seen in the same room with her. And this is coming from someone who was a huge fan.
