Union's publicist is calling for celebrities to boycott Los Angeles nightclub Mood, after the venue's owner allegedly cancelled the actress' birthday
Don't judge someone by his or her appearance. Living in a multicultural world we should have what is called as respect for others. Live in piece is a must for us to create a better world. Don't let the differences set aside one another, yet let those differences enrich our culture.
David Judaken, Los Angeles nightclub 'Mood' owner should learn about that. Well, maybe. The rumor on the street is that publicist for actress Gabrielle Union is calling for celebrities to boycott 'Mood' after David allegedly cancelled Union's birthday party when he discovered she was an African-American. Union was supposed to celebrate her 33rd birthday at the top club this weekend until David allegedly realized he had mistaken Union for white beach volleyball player Gabrielle Reece.
Outraged by the incident, Union's publicist Holly Shankoor sent an email around the publicity industry, which wrote "You should all be aware of an incident that occurred with my client Gabrielle Union and the owner of Mood. Mood was going to host her birthday party. Once the owner found out she was African-American, he not only cancelled her party, but he proceeded to say that he 'didn't realize Gabrielle Union was black. You can discourage your celeb clients from going (to Mood) and also doing any events (there)."
Moreover, Shakoor also quoted David as saying, "I don't want (Union's) kind of people in my club." On the other hand, David untrue the claim saying "All the statements written in her email are untrue. To say that this event was cancelled over race or creed is hurtful and slanderous." Thus, David is now considering legal action against Shakoor, declaring her email "has an immediate negative impact on my business."
