Well, it was Simmons who fired the first shot wasn’t it?

And his sister who’s racial profiling of Australians stirred it up again

I saw he posted a video stating that he and 2 mates were denied entry but a 4th one in the group wasn't. Peter Ford then filled the gaps as he saw it to which Simmons tweeted back at him that he had his facts wrong. She Sky after dark, 2gb crew then took over and it grew a life of it's own.

His "white" mate looked over 25 so he wasn't asked for ID. He was refused entry - but then went to another entry point and was granted entry.

Just a typical entitled victim who doesn't want to play by everyone else's rules ... suffers the same kind of racism as Adam Goodes, Serena Williams, Kaepernick, etc, etc.

Nothing to see here - this is the ugly face of "Racism in Australia" ... yawn.

If Simmons had facts to support his claim we'd know them by now.

Glad it was an Indian that stopped Simmons.

If it was a white bloke imagine the outcry; pt  would have been all over itLOL

Reminds me of the the crowd controller who stepped onto the oval,   to break up the brawl at the footy match.

I gave this thread a big boost when I mentioned Simmons over 4 hours ago. Otherwise it would have been eligible for the Sad Threads.

I dont know why they were denied entry, but they were in pretty soon after the incident and nobody other than Sky and 2GB seemed to want to discuss it.

This is an embarrassment to both Simmons and the Victorian Government who paid him to come here and "promote" Victoria - instead he fcuked them over! - they both just want it to go away!

The FAKE NEWS MEDIA is doing their best to pretend it never happened, Sky News however just keep reporting the facts ...Embarrassed

Simmons wanted it discussed that why he sent his to millions of people to view.
Remember, he said Australia "has a long way to go" meaning we are racist.

It appears that an indian security guard may be racist but the 100 or so people who queued up for his clinic wern't. Rather interestingly they all appeared to be white skined people linning up to hero worship him but hey.......Australian are racistConfused

I wonder how many times he has to scream "RACIST" to "trigger" a payment - they might have worded THAT better ... he doesn't take a lot to be "triggered" does he! LOL

"Visit Victoria has a standard commercial arrangement with Ben Simmons to utilise his international profile in promoting Victoria to a global audience," a spokesman said.

"The agreement contains standard obligations, and payments are only triggered when certain milestones are met."

"What's happening this week is probably counterintuitive in terms of our objectives of bringing people to Melbourne and our attractions. But we're very proud of the work he does and our collaboration," Mr Jennings said.Embarrassed

Good on Simmons for achieving his multi million dollar contract, great story.
The problem is he very quickly lost touch with reality and has become an entitled, privileged unbelievably rich spoilt sports star.

that was super fast, how old is he ? Shocked

Simmons could not  have done more to alienate his support in the general community because of his racism rant .Obviously has tickets on himself because he plays basketball.
I will not be buying any of his endorsed basketball gear any time soon.Wink

I've gone from loving the guy to disliking him. Going down the Kyrios / Tomic path. Needs to take a few lessons from a few other aussies doing well in the NBA - esp Joe Ingles & Patty Mills.

I thought he was pretty poor when he ducked out a back door to avoid fans who had waited hours to see him, after he attended a clinic that cost $200 per person.   What harm in walking out the front door and smiling at the fans while they took pics ??   Not all fans can afford $200 to see him up close and personal, and its not like he is hurting for a dollar Clown
