Actor Jamie Foxx captured the moments after he experienced racial slurs while eating at a Croatian restaurant on video.

The Hollywood actor, who is in Dubrovnik shooting his next movie, posted videos on his Instagram page about the hateful incident on Monday.

In his captions, which have since been removed, Foxx talked about an offensive racial term being said by two men, aged 44 and 50.

The word, Total Croatia News reported, was “crncuga” – which translates to “n*****.”

According to the Daily Mail, Croatian authorities said on Tuesday that disorderly conduct charges had been filed against the two men who targeted “one of the guests on racial grounds.”

The police statement did not identify Foxx as the victim.

Law enforcement officials went on to say they are investigating whether to pursue additional charges against the men.

Croatia, like other countries in Europe, has seen an increase in racist sentiments in recent years.

Jamie Foxx is in Dubrovnik, located on the Adriatic Sea, filming Robin Hood: Origins, in which he plays the role of Little John.

The Lionsgate retelling of English folklore stars Taron Egerton as the titular thief. Otto Bathurst is the film’s director, which also stars Tim Minchin, Eve Hewson, Jamie Dornan and Ben Mendelsohn.

A day after the racial slur was made, Foxx said on his Instagram that he had his “mind blown” by Dubrovnik’s beauty.

He said: “For a young boy from Terrell, this is blowing my mind just a little bit. I have seen some s*** but this here….I’m all the way from Terrell, Texas, don’t tell me your dreams can’t come true.”
