Tamar Braxton Says She Was Banned From Bar

They said zero tolerance for black people. 

The restaurant acknowledged Braxton was turned away, but did not elaborate as to why she was denied entry. They said in a statement,

Our posted policies regarding entrance into JR’s Bar & Grill are to both ensure the safety of all our customers and to certify that our staff are in accordance with the law when serving alcohol – without exception. In this instance, we were simply following our published procedures. It would have been a beautiful experience and honor to add Tamar Braxton to the long list of celebrities who have enjoyed JR’s as a safe and inclusive entertainment venue. We are deeply saddened that she didn’t experience the love that awaited her inside.

Braxton is in town to perform on “The Great Xscape Tour” at Verizon Theatre on Dec. 13.
