Author Teri Woods Sues New York Nightclub Over Discrimination At Her Own Party

Author Teri Woods Suing Club Over Discrimination

The name of the club is the Greenhouse, but maybe it should be changed to the Blacklist. 

Beautiful African-American author, Teri Woods, has filed a $1 billion class action lawsuit accusing the bouncer,  and  the owner of denying entry to approximately 100 people because of their ethnicity. Now author Teri Woods has come forward to corroborate the allegations, and she says it wasn’t just blacks who were kept out of her party. 

It was supposed to be a big night for the top urban fiction author Teri Woods, who had invited 175 people to party at the trendy SoHo nightclub to celebrate her new book. 

But Woods ended up in tears when she found almost her entire guest list being kept outside Greenhouse’s notorious velvet rope. 

“They should have just put up a sign that said, ‘No coloreds allowed,'” Robinson, 39, said. “There was no reason for them to not allow us into that club, except for the color of our skin.” 

“We’re not talking about four people — we’re talking over 100 people,” said attorney John Nonnenmacher, who filed the lawsuit. 

The Daily News said Greenhouse owner Barry Mullineaux dismissed the allegations of racism, calling the claims “all pretty much bogus.” 

Woods has text messages she says he sent that night showing he was barring people based on appearance. “Everybody looking at me like this your  people Barry???” read a text message. “I couldn’t let in 300lb girls.” 

“There was nobody out there who was fat,” said Woods. “And even if there was a fat person, who cares?” 

Woods had planned the August 6th bash to celebrate the release of her new book Alibi, hiring a DJ and ordering bottles of French Ciroc Vodka for the invited guests. But she said her black guests were turned away, while several of the white attendees were allowed in. 

Teri Woods is a pioneer of the enormously successful urban or hip-hop fiction genre. 

The New York Daily News reports… 

“They left all of my friends and family standing outside,” she said. “I had really serious people out there: lawyers, doctors and people in the entertainment industry. 

“I was embarrassed. I was just walking around in circles and in tears. They took my moment.” 

A handful of her guests who were white lawyers were allowed in, she said. 

“There was nobody out there who was fat, and even if there was a fat person, who cares?” 

Robinson, the sister of rapper Queen Pen, said, “When I asked the doorman what was the problem, he just looked past us like we didn’t exist.” 

Robinson is part of the suit filed against Mullineaux and another club owner. 

Clubs can deny entry based on clothing but not race: The feds have gone after clubs in Virginia and Wisconsin that tried to keep black people out. 

Go get them Teri,make them pay restitution, and more importantly, let’s prevent them from doing this to anybody else for any reason.
