Ben Simmons claims he was refused entry to Crown Casino because of skin colour

Australia’s highest-paid athlete Ben Simmons claims he and a number of his entourage were refused entry to Crown Casino – and suggested he thinks he knows why they were allegedly turned away.

The Philadelphia 76ers star on Monday posted a since-deleted video to Instagram, shot in the foyer of the Melbourne casino.

Simmons, 23, who recently signed a $242million NBA contract extension, claimed his white friend, Alex Subers, wasn’t checked at the entrance – but the remainder of the group was.

‘I find it so crazy that the only guy who doesn’t get checked to go into the casino is this guy,’ Simmons said in the video, pointing to his friend.

‘I get checked, Mike gets checked and Tys gets checked.’

Simmons then pans the camera around to show his entourage agreeing with his allegations, before zooming in on two security guards standing behind.

‘Thank you Crown Casino, damn, and they didn’t let me in, or him or this guy,’ Simmons continued.

‘Wow, we got a long way to go.’
