Rapper, The Game, was denied service at a popular restaurant in Pasadena over the weekend for allegedly having tattoos on his arms. But the restaurant manager is telling HipHollywood that the story is false.
“We don’t allow sleeveless shirts by gentleman,” the manager of Houston’s told us. “That’s why he was denied service.” The manager also noted that Jayceon Terrell Taylor, the rapper’s legal name, was also a “regular at Houston’s.”
According to The Game, he was trying to get some lunch at the upscale eatery on Sunday when one of the managers allegedly told him his tattoos were threatening.
“NEVER eating @ Houston’s restaurants as long as I live ! Denied service in Pasadena by mgr “Vy Diep” because: I have tattoos on my arms,” the rapper wrote in a series of tweets.
“Its 90 degrees outside so I have a tank top on & the manager on duty “Vy Diep” says the tattoos on my arms are threatening 2 lunch customers,” Game continued.
The Game later tweeted that this wasn’t the first time he has had a problem at the popular restaurant. “2nd time I’ve been racially profiled at Houston’s… Last time in Santa Monica, this time in Pasadena,” he added.
The rapper took to the social media website to start a boycott with the hashtag, #Don’tEatAtHouston’sPasadena.
