FOOTAGE of an alleged “anti-white” bar attack on an actress has been released by a venue who claim she started it.
Actress Jennifer Agostini, 43, shared how she was left beaten, bloody and bruised from a scuffle in the early hours of November 24.

Footage of the incidents appeared to show as many as four altercation between Ms Agostini and her pal Ms Garcia[/caption]
She and pal Prendinellys Garcia, 47, alleged that the group of up to 15 people yelled racially charged insults at them, according to their lawsuit.
They claim to have heard them say “white motherf***ers,” “dirty white b***es” and “f*** those white b****es and their money.”
But now Sky Room, the bar in Manhattan, New York, where the incident occurred has shared video footage of the attacks.
Mike Paul, a spokesperson for the establishment, told The Sun Online that the claims made against them and their staff are “absolute 100 per cent inaccurate.”
He went onto add that security staff “helped, especially Ms Agostini from getting further injuries”.
We saw absolutely no evidence of any racial comments of any kind.

Mr Paul told The Sun Online: “She should be thanking those security guards.
“We saw absolutely no evidence of any racial comments of any kind.
“It’s important to know that as soon as she was outside when she was offered first aid she refused, an ambulance she refused, we offered for her to talk to police and she refused that too.”
He also went onto dispute a photo released by Ms Agostini, which appeared to show her face dripping and covered in blood.
They created a four-way compilation image featuring that shot and stills from the surveillance footage, where the wound appeared to be smaller.
Mr Paul also claimed that there was no “racial” abuse, based-on the testimonies of his staff.
He claimed that the surveillance camera did not record audio, because to do so would violate New York laws.

Mr Paul claims that the footage shows Ms Agostini falsely accuse a stranger at an ATM machine of stealing her card.
He then believes she and Ms Garcia went onto attack the woman with “what appeared to be harmful intent”.
In a second “belligerent” altercation, Mr Paul believes that the pair were involved in “aggressive cursing” and “alleged further physical contact” on a small group.
He claimed that Ms Agostini attempted to “instigate another fight outside the door” in a third altercation, as they were being led out of Sky Room by security.
Mr Paul stated that she did this despite “bleeding from a cut above her right eye”.
He then alleged that their party waited for a further 10 minutes outside the establishment where they tried to started “another fight”.
Ms. Agostini had another agenda including seeking to spread as much blood on her face as possible
Mike Paul, Sky Room spokesperson
Throughout the footage, Mr Paul claims the bar’s security team tried to “deescalate” the situation and protect the two women.
After the women refused medical help, he believes she “spread as much blood on her face as possible for photos”.
Mr Paul added: “Ms. Agostini and her party concocted a false narrative about an alleged ‘racial’ fight with our customers and also allegedly lied saying our security staff pushed, beat or hit her.
“Neither is true. In fact, race was never a factor of any altercation, but Ms. Garcia and Ms. Agostini’s own aggressive and harmful actions both verbally and physically are to blame.
“It is an abomination the Garcia/Agostini party were not truthful about what REALLY happened.”
