Is Jennie Garth claiming racism after a hip Los Angeles club denied entry to her three Black friends? The Beverly Hills, 90210 actress left hotspot DBA in tears on Monday night after the club refused to let her entire party in.
According to TMZ, Garth showed up with five friends, two white women and three Black men, to the club following a promotional event. Garth and the two women were granted accress, but the three men were told to wait in line. The actress then stormed off in tears, flipping paparazzi the bird on her way out. She later tweeted, "DBA 7969 wtf!" The numbers indicate the club's street address.
DBA, meanwhile, admits to turning away the party, but claims it was the entire party — Garth included — who were asked to wait to enter the club. In a statement, the Hollywood hot spot explained, "DBA has a very strict door policy and Ms. Garth and her entire group of friends were asked to wait in line for entry along with everyone else. The group chose not to do so and left."
A photographer who was present at the time of the incident backs up the club's claims, saying that Garth pulled the "Don't You Know Who I Am" card with the bouncer. According to the paparazzo, the bouncers told her they couldn't make any exceptions to the rules, and that she and her party would have to stand in line.
