Karrueche Tran has responded to allegations of a racist door policy at
celebrity haunt in London, DSTRKT, stating that it was “unfortunate”
ahead of her club night.
The model and aspiring actress was billed to host her own club night in
the city on Tuesday night, and spoke with BBC Newsbeat on Tuesday about
the serious allegations levelled against the club.
“It’s unfortunate to hear about something like that especially something that I’m part of,” she said.
“I’m half African-American too. I have godsisters and family who have
darker skin as well. I don’t support any sort of discrimination. I love
people for who they are.”
DSTRKT has been described as being racist and too discriminatory.
The posh celeb haunt found itself at the centre of the racism brouhaha
after allegedly refusing entry to girls deemed ‘too dark’ and too fat.
On Saturday, 4 women headed for a night out and arrived shortly after
10pm at the club, the girls claim they were told they couldn’t go in
because the club was full. However, they noticed that other girls were
allowed into the club.
The women say they were told they were declined entry because one of the girls was “too dark” and another was “overweight”.
One of the girls in the group said:
“Manager of DSTRKT stated I and my thinner friend fine but other two girls are too fat and if they are black women or dark skinned they need to be very hot to gain entry.”
