Aboriginal Australian actor “Uncle” Jack Charles says he has been refused taxi rides two times in three days.
Mr Charles’ manager, Patrice Capogreco, said the actor may take legal action against the drivers and taxi company.
The first incident occurred on Wednesday night after a Melbourne event where Mr Charles was declared Victorian Senior Australian of the Year.
When Mr Charles tried to get in a taxi the driver allegedly demanded upfront payment because “he might not pay”.
The second incident occurred at Melbourne airport at 15:00 local time Friday (04:00 GMT).
