Oh dear.. oh dear… well it sounds like the management over at Tiger Tiger headquarters in Croydon are in a state of panic!Last week DJ RSI (real name Ricky Simmonds) tweeted that he had been fired from popular club/restaurant Tiger Tiger. He claimed that the general manager told him that “there’s too many black people in your room” and he was later fired. (click here to read). However Tiger Tiger management deny these allegations (click here to read).
Croydon Today reports that the club is now considering legal action against Simmonds after widespread calls to boycott the establishment.
A spokeswoman later said,
“DJ RSI, who has made these unfounded allegations, was repeatedly requested by the venue manager, over a number of weeks, to tone down the music he was playing as customers complained that it created an intimidating atmosphere.
“He ignored these requests and consequently was not following our commercial R&B music policy, which is why he will no longer be playing at Tiger Tiger Croydon.”
Hahahahaha - I would love to see this DJ’s play-list.
“customers complained that it created an intimidating atmosphere”
Translation – Too many black faces in the building created an intimidating atmosphere.
“Commercial R&B music policy” - Who comes under that banner then???
In response to the threat of legal action Simmonds said, “If they want to take me to court for telling the truth, so be it”.
In less than a month after the tragic death of Whitney Houston Oprah Winfrey managed to bag an interview with the star’s daughter Bobbi Kristina and other members of her family.
The highly anticipated pre-recorded interview aired last night on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) and is no doubt a ratings winner for the network.
or CLICK HERE to watch.
Bobbi Kristina was very composed….. but I think she is still in shock.
Rest In Peace Whitney Houston.
Jennifer Blake is a former girl gang member who now works with youngsters warning them about the dangers of joining gangs. I respect what Jennifer is doing. Keep up the good work.
I however see that the DREADFUL, stereotypical bordering on offensive film SKET features heavily in this news piece (the DVD was released last week *promotion* ) and the film’s director Nirpal Bhogal was also sitting on the panel.
I don’t quite understand why a certain actor has to be up in everything. He wasn’t in the film SKET and the last time I checked was never in a girl gang. Also what does this subject matter have to do with his BAFTA win?
