Cuba Gooding Jr. Calls Bartender a “Racist”

The comment was caught on tape immediately after heated bar exchange.

Published August 3, 2012

It seems Cuba Gooding Jr.’s recent bar scuffle didn’t end inside the New Orleans pub where it occurred.

TMZ is reporting that once Gooding was asked to leave the Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street for shoving a female bartender on duty, he called the woman a racist outside the bar. And it was all caught on amateur videotape.

The video begins once Gooding leaves the bar and the bartender encouraged onlookers on the street to “call the cops right now.” The Red Tails star countered, “She a racist. She’s racist. She doesn’t like me.”

But this appears to be the final chapter in the incident. As previously reported, management at the bar says the bartender will not be pressing charges, so Cuba will most likely not be prosecuted. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
