Actor in racism row after posting photo online

Express.co.uk:-A BLACK actor has ignited a row online after posting a Christmas snap of an ‘inside joke’ which was heavily criticised for being racist.

American actor and model Lance Gross uploaded a photo from the holiday season, showing him alongside his wife Rebecca Jefferson and seven of their friends.

It shows couples kitted out in christmasy clothes, but one woman is sitting on her own at the end looking into the distance.

Soon after the photo was made public, the 35-year-old received a tidal wave of abuse, with users accusing him of being insensitive.

Critics were quick to brand Mr Gross as racist, as the woman sitting on her own had darker skin than the other four.
