Makon, who was born in Cameroon and is also known as Elton Prince, was referring to a Saturday assault in Madridthat left him bruised and bloodied.
According to a Facebook post by Makon, the actor and his friends had stepped up to order coffee early Saturday when a couple approached him.
“I don’t want black people in this place or in front of me,” the woman, 33, reportedly said. Makon wrote that he tried to de-escalate the situation, telling her, “I will only be here for a moment and then I’m leaving. I don’t have any interest in staying near you for long.”
The woman then reportedly called him a “black piece of s—.” When he asked her to calm down, he wrote, she began attacking him with a glass bottle. She hit him twice on the head, Makon said, causing a cut and other injuries that required seven stitches.
“I’m white,” she allegedly said. “I can kill you and nothing will happen.”
The owners of the restaurant intervened and called police. When authorities arrived, they briefly detained the woman but released her after she gave a statement. The Spanish Immigration and Refugee Support Network has urged Madrid prosecutors to investigate the incident as a hate crime.
A 54-year-old woman who authorities say repeatedly shouted the n-word at some neighborhood children faces a possible jail sentence — but not for her hateful words.
In Oregon, it’s not a crime in and of itself to call someone the n-word. In this case, the racial slur was directed at two African-American boys ages 4 and 11 playing in the courtyard of the Southeast Portland apartment complex they shared with defendant Brenda Mae Glenn, prosecutors said.
But it’s what Glenn did next that earned her convictions during a one-day trial last month:
When the children’s mother told Glenn that her hurtful speech needed to stop, Glenn struck her on the head with a beer bottle. The mother, Tierra Dizer, suffered a goose-egg-sized bump to her forehead, according to police who arrived on the scene.

But while the school indicated that one of its faculty members did make questionable comments via a Facebook post, it did not reference her by name.
“It has recently come to our attention that there was a video posted on Facebook of a GWC faculty member making comments that the College does not condone or support. Golden West College believes in an inclusive and welcoming environment for all students,” the post read.
Netizens who soon flooded the comments section have found the post somewhat lacking:
Others were there to call for her dismissal from the school:
Some people have even accused the college of deleting comments.
