Ben Simmons speaks out on racial profiling incident

‘There’s other people that have experienced the same thing but can’t say anything because they don’t have the same platform’

On Aug. 5, Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons was denied access to Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia. Simmons is one of the most well-known and richest athletes from Australia. But even that familiarity didn’t keep the 76ers guard from believing that he was racially profiled at a casino in his native hometown. The 2019 All-Star opened up about the incident with The Undefeated.
