At a Saturday bookstore signing, a black man "yelled at former White House press secretary Sean Spicer in a bookstore and accused Spicer of calling him a racial slur when they were students at a prep school decades ago," reports the AP. Spicer is now threatening to sue the AP for reporting Saturday's incident, which occurred in public and which was videotaped by local press.
Video of the encounter published by NewportRI.com shows the man, identified as Alex Lombard, approaching Spicer at event.
"Sean, I was a day student at [Portsmouth] Abbey, too, with you,” Lombard said.
“Hey," Spicer replies. "Yes, how are you?”
You don’t remember that you tried to fight me?" Lombard said. "But you called me a [n-word] first."
The video then shows security escorting Lombard out of the event.
"I was 14 then. I was a scared kid then, Sean. I’m not scared to fight you now," Lombard can be heard yelling.
