Former NBA player Etan Thomas has called out a woman he says denied him a seat next to her on a crowded train only to offer it to another passenger.
He wrote in a Facebook post Friday that he asked a woman if he could sit next to her on a crowded train but was told the seat was taken. Thomas, who is black, says a white man inquired about the seat less than two minutes later and the woman obliged.
Thomas says he confronted the woman and took a picture, which he posted to Facebook. He says she called the conductor, who Thomas says was a fan of his.
He didn't say where the incident took place or what train line he was on.
