Party goers are refusing to go to Argyle Night Club in Hollywood after experiencing racial discrimination, reports Fox 11 News.

Fatell Baldonado said he wanted to celebrate his birthday at the club and reached out to a party promoter to arrange his celebration.

He reached out to Sharif Hasan who works as a third party promoter for the nightclub.

After telling him he was bringing a large group of friends, Hasan said he wouldn’t admit anybody who was “hood, black, or fat.”

“And I was like so if I bring anyone black, ghetto, anything like whatever you discriminated against women that are plus size, they’re not getting in?” Baldonado said.

Baldonado showed up to the club and said the doormen were showing his guests “blatant disrespect.”

One of his friends Derick Jackson was denied entry. “The promoter was pretty much very aggressive with me,” Jackson said.

Hasan said he was just upholding the club’s policy.

A statement released by Argyle said:

“Our policies are completely inclusive of all individuals. We will occasionally deny entrance due to dress codes that are based on a common industry wide policy. Every one of our evenings is completely diverse. The words used are highly offensive and I can assure you they do not represent our culture or organization.”

LISTEN: Charlamagne Tha God clashes with ‘delusional’ Rush Limbaugh in debate over George Floyd’s killing and white privilege

Published

During an interview with Rush Limbaugh this Monday, Charlamagne Tha God called out the conservative radio host for his white privilege and asked him why he's choosing to speak out on George Floyd's killing while there have been countless examples of police violence against black people.

“I know that you’re going to disagree with me on this — to me this is not America,” Limbaugh said, adding that he thinks the U.S. is the greatest country in the world.

But according to Charlamagne, America is only great for some people.

“I think it’s easy for you to say because you’re a white male and that comes with a different level of privilege,” Charlamagne said. “And I do think America does work but it works for the people it was designed to work for. It doesn’t work for everyone else the way it works for you.”
