Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx recently became a target of racial discrimination in Croatia. The police have filed disorderly conduct charges against two people who used a racial slur to insult Foxx in a restaurant.

According to the police, they acted after receiving reports on Sunday of “particularly arrogant and rude” insults made against restaurant guests, including “one of the guests on racial grounds”, reports Telegraph.
