Well known NYC nightclub, Greenhouse, was struck with a third lawsuit on Tuesday for allegedly turning away four women for being Black and Hispanic, the New York Post reported. This marks the third discrimination lawsuit brought against the nightclub since October. Surprising? Nahh, not really.
Cynthia Toro, Lisbet Fernandez, Brenda Reyes and Claribel Reyes were denied entry to their friend's birthday party at the club on Varick Street, stating they were "very hurt and disappointed" by the incident. "It didn't even occur to us that racism still exists in reputable NYC nightclubs," the women said in a statement.
Lawyer John Nonnenmacher said this is nothing new for Greenhouse as the club has a long running history of keeping minorities out. "Unless you're Beyoncé, you're not getting in," he said. However, others have doubts that this is a legit case, saying that it's merely an attempt to "piggyback on past allegations" that weren't even true.
