A woman in Madrid, Spain was released from police custody after insulting a black actor and smashing a beer bottle in his face.
Marius Makon, who goes by the stage name Elton Prince, walked up to the counter of a local bar, only to be called a “black piece of shit” by an unidentified woman who confronted him and said, “I don’t want black people in this place or in front of me.”
Makon described what happened next on Facebook.
“No Miss, I will only be here for a moment and then I’m leaving. I don’t have any interest in staying near you for long,” he claims he told the 33-year-old El Salvadorian woman.
“I don’t care, you black piece of sh*t, get out of here,” she reportedly replied, at which point he claims he told her, “Calm down Miss, I insist, we are in a public place and I don’t understand your anger.”
According to Makon, the woman insulted him with, “Black piece of shit, I’m white. I can kill you and nothing will happen,” before grabbing a beer bottle from the bartop and smashing it into his head multiple times.
Makon was then helped by people in the bar and the owners of the establishment called the police. When authorities arrived Makon was advised to file a police report, which he did at the police station. The woman was detained and released once her statement was taken by the police.
