A New Orleans Saints player claims that he, three teammates, and two other men were turned away from a nightclub in London for being “too urban.”

In a series of tweets, New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram wrote that he and his five companions were denied entry into Cirque Le Soir early Tuesday morning. The rest of the group included; Saints safety Vonn Bell, cornerback Sterling Moore, cornerback B.W. Webb, and non-players Chris Burtley (an attorney), and William Nelson (Ingram’s publicist).

Cirque Le Soir posted a statement to Twitter denying Ingram’s account of the incident, saying that they were denied admission because their group was comprised exclusively of men — which goes against the club’s stated policy.
