New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram claims he and his teammates were not allowed entrance into a London nightclub they already had reservations for on Monday because they were "six big guys" and "too urban."
Ingram detailed the incident on his Twitter account.
Also barred from the Cirque le Soir establishment in Soho were Saints players Sterling Moore, Vonn Bell and B.W. Webb and two others.
"They told us they were "6 big guys" that are too "Urban" but nobody taller than 5'11!!," Ingram wrote on Twitter. Ingram and his teammates were in London ahead of New Orleans' game against the Miami Dolphins next season at London's Wembley Stadium.
He assured his followers on Twitter that the team remains excited about the game.
"Nonetheless we all can't wait to play out here NFLUK next season!!! Gonna be crazy experience and I'm excited about it! I (love) England!", Ingram wrote.
He added, "Everyone in England has been amazing so far!!! This was our first #TooUrban encounter entire trip! I (love) England!"
Ingram rushed for 1,043 yards and six touchdowns last season. New Orleans (7-9) missed the playoffs after finishing third in the NFC South.
