TV presenter called ‘nigger’ by Kate Moss’s white, middle-class friend

London: Ben Douglas is deeply infuriated over the recent shocking incident in which a white, middle class friend of actress Kate Moss abused the TV presenter calling him a ‘nigger’ eight times.

The incident happened at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London where Douglas had been invited to attend the Bafta awards, reports the Daily Mail.

The man reportedly accosted Douglas and repeatedly called him a ‘nigger’. His behaviour was unexplainable since he is a leading figure from the fashion world who numbers Kate Moss and Lily Allen among his closest friends.

Douglas refused to name the man saying he had no desire to destroy his career. However, he hinted that the individual is every bit in demand today as he was when he was involved in his first Vogue cover in the Nineties.

Even when challenged, rather than back-pedalling and apologizing, the man launched into a self-justification exercise.

Highly upset with the racist abuse, Douglas clarified his identity saying, “I am not from the mean streets of Detroit, Harlem or LA. I am from Teddington in Surrey, and while my genetic roots are Bajan, the parents who raised me are as white as the buffoon who stood there insulting me.”
