Was John Amaechi Denied Entry From a Gay Bar Because He’s Big and Black, Or Argumentative And Aggressive?

John Amaechi’s party had been “argumentative and aggressive” at another venue, explains Matt Taylor to the BBC, manager of the Crunch bar in Manchester, explaining why his staff blocked the former NBA baller’s entry. Amaechi tweeted he was refused because the bouncer said he looked “big, black and could be trouble.” Says Taylor: “Whilst I understand it is upsetting to be turned away from a venue when on a night out, to justify a refusal of entry by provoking a racist debate is completely uncalled for.” Amaechi still wants an apology. Would some drink tickets do?
