As reported by NME, Jess Glynne has spoken out after facing criticism for claiming she experienced “pure discrimination” when she was turned away from a restaurant for wearing a hoodie.
The singer hit out at Mayfair’s Sexy Fish on Monday evening after she and a friend were unable to secure a table at the exclusive restaurant.
Posting on Instagram at the time, Glynne explained she was dressed in a grey oversized hoodie, jogging bottoms, trainers and a black cap.
The singer called on the restaurant to “check itself” and described the attitude of its staff as “pure discrimination”.
But after facing swift ridicule on social media, Glynne has said she “used the wrong word” in her original criticism.
“I feel I need to come on here and just, like, pull up on what I posted yesterday,” she began in an Instagram TV video, which you can view via the link below.
