Meek Mill Calls Las Vegas Hotel ‘Racist’ For Refusing Him Entry ‘Without Incident’
Written by KFAT on June 9, 2019
Las Vegas, NV, United States (4E) – Rapper Meek Mill accused a Las Vegas hotel of being racist after he was denied entry for no justifiable reason.
In a series of tweets, Meek Mill blasted the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas after the hotel’s security team banned him from entering the premises and threatened to have him arrested for trespassing, TMZ reported. The incident, which took place on Saturday afternoon, was documented by the rapper, which he shared on his social media accounts.
A video of his encounter with the hotel’s security personnel shows the rapper was seated inside his vehicle when two men appeared to be blocking him from entering. In the video, the rapper, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, can be heard asking, “How can you tell me I’ll be locked up for trespassing?”
One of the men answered, “We’re a private property. At this time, with the information we have, we’re refusing to do business with you. We have the right to do that.”
Mill continued to question the security personnel’s statement, going to ask why he was going to be arrested. “If I walk upstairs to get something to eat, I’m going to be arrested? For what? For being a rapper?”
The personnel then went on to say that the rapper has been “officially trespassed” by the hotel.
Mill was the Cosmopolitan to show support for DJ Mustard, who was in Las Vegas for his residency at the Marquee Nightclub, his publicist told NBC News.
On Twitter, Mill criticized the Cosmopolitan and accused it, as well as other hotels in Las Vegas, for employing tactics that discriminate against black entertainers by having them banned “without incident.”
“Because they don’t want too many blacks on they property,” the rapper tweeted.
In a statement to 3 News Las Vegas, the Cosmopolitan’s managed refused to comment on the issue “as a matter of company policy” and added that their guests’ safety and security is their top priority.
