Woman lobs discrimination complaint at local club

A Charlotte club is accused of discrimination.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A Charlotte club has been accused of racial discrimination.

A Facebook post viewed more than two million times online shows the club Kandy Bar at the Epicenter turning away a black man.

The woman who made the post alleges the same thing happened to her and a group of friends just moments before she took the video, saying the bouncer told her the club was private and she needed a membership for entry.

But the club says one man in her group didn't meet the dress code to get into the club.

Kandy Bar' sent NBC Charlotte a statement saying membership is required, as outlined on their website and that "as a member of the Charlotte community, we have zero tolerance for discrimination and harassment."

The club is investigating the incident.
