Former NBA player Etan Thomas has called out a woman he says denied him a seat next to her on a crowded train, only to offer it up to another passenger.

He wrote in a Friday Facebook post that he asked a woman if he could sit next to her on a crowded train but was told the seat was taken. Thomas, who is black, said a white man inquired about the seat less than two minutes later and the woman obliged.

Thomas said he confronted the woman and took a picture, which he later posted to Facebook. He said she called the conductor, who Thomas said was a fan of his.

Thomas didn’t say where the incident took place or what train line he was on.

The 38-year-old Thomas played for Washington, Oklahoma City and Atlanta in a nine-year NBA career that ended following the 2011 season.
