Drake is not happy with the treatment he received at a Vancouver casino, and took to Instagram story to blast the city’s Parq Vancouver casino, alleging he was racially profiled.
The Toronto-born rapper is in Vancouver this weekend for two shows on his Aubrey and the Three Migos tour, and apparently decided to do a little gambling — but says he was denied.
Describing the Parq as “the worst run business I have ever witnessed,” Drake slammed the casino for “profiling me and not allowing me to gamble when I had everything they originally asked me for.”
As the Vancouver Sun reports, some of Champagne Papi’s 50 million Instagram followers came to his defence, lambasting the casino for its alleged treatment of the rapper by leaving terrible reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor.
“I would definitely never come here…” wrote one commenter, adding the casino owed Drake an apology.
“Why didn’t y’all let Drizzy Drake gamble when he gave you guys everything you all asked for? Pathetic!!! I hope y’all go out of business!” reads a comment on TripAdvisor.
Others took to the casino’s Instagram to serve up some scathing comments:
On Saturday, the casino responded to Drake’s allegations, issuing a statement to Global News.
“Parq Vancouver is sorry to hear about this experience and takes these matters very seriously,” reads the statement from the casino’s director of marketing, Narinda Nagra.
“We are required to adhere to strict regulations with respect to gaming in British Columbia,” the statement continues. “We are actively investigating this matter and have made several efforts to reach out to the customer and his team to discuss the issue. We are committed to having a productive conversation to resolve this issue.”
Meanwhile, Drizzy’s fans have been taking to Twitter to share their outrage:
