Crown Casino has “strenuously” rejected any suggestion that they discriminated against Ben Simmons and his group, and claim the Australian was subsequently permitted entry at the Melbourne establishment.

In a deleted Instagram Story overnight, Simmons said: “I find it so crazy that the only guy who doesn’t get checked to go into the casino is this guy.”

“I get checked, Mike gets checked and Tys gets checked.

“Thank you Crown Casino, damn, and they didn’t let me in, or him or this guy. Wow, we got a long way to go.”

Crown has since responded, releasing a statement that denies any wrongdoing on behalf of the casino.
