UPDATE: Spicer is threatening to sue The Associated Press for reporting on this story, notes The Hill:
Spicer’s attorney Michael Bowe said in a statement Saturday night that the AP “recklessly republished a categorically false accusation about Sean Spicer.”
“The claim is a lie. Absent an immediate retraction, Mr. Spicer will take legal action Monday,” Bowe said.
A black classmate of former White house Press Secretary Sean Spicer confronted him during a book signing in Middletown, Rhode Island, on July 27.
Alex Lombard reminded Spicer that they had attended the Portsmouth Abbey School together, notes NewportRI.
Spicer, who was heckled during a New York City signing, acknowledged Lonbard, who then recalled his version of a bad memory:
You don’t remember that you tried to fight me? But you called me a n*gger first.
A security guard escorted Lombard out of the room as he shouted at Spicer:
I was 14 then. I was a scared kid then, Sean. I’m not scared to fight you now.
