Omarion took a stand against a London nightclub that was accused of racism. On Sept. 26, Zalika Miller and four of her friends attempted to party at DSTRKT nightclub in London. However, the promoter told Miller that if she was bringing Black girls than they needed to have a certain look.
When they arrived at the club, the person at the door told them the club was at full capacity. But other White men and women were allowed to enter the club afterwards. Miller, who knew the club promoter, sent several text messages. The promoter responded by saying that Miller’s friends were “too dark” and “overweight” to be allowed entry. Miller, who is an actress, took to social media and shared her story as other people revealed similar incidents of racism.
Dozens of people protested at DSTRKT and called for all Black celebrities to boycott the venue. Karrucehe Tran received some backlash after she made an appearance at the club days after the women were denied. Karrueche denounced the discrimination allegations, but some were upset that she decided to party at the club.
On Oct. 2, promoters at DSTRKT announced an appearance by Omarion. However, the R&B star tweeted that he would not support the club. Reportedly, the club owners have denied discrimination, but they have yet to apologize to the women who were insulted due to their skin tone.
I will not be attending #DstrktLondon tonight period.
