Drake accuses Vancouver Casino of racial discrimination

Toronto rapper Drake has accused Vancouver's Parq Casino of profiling him and denying him service.

The rapper is in Vancouver ahead of Saturday and Sunday tour dates at Rogers Arena.

Fans of the "In My Feelings " rapper have already left dozens of savage reviews on the Parq Casino's Yelp page.

While it is unclear if this is precisely what stopped Parq from permitting Drake, née Aubrey Drake Graham, to gamble Saturday morning, Parq's official statement includes reference to gaming rules.

"Parq Vancouver is sorry to hear about this experience and takes these matters very seriously. We are committed to providing a safe, secure and enjoyable experience for all", Brunini said.

Bill Belichick joked about Tom Brady not reaching 1,000 rushing yards
It was the first score of his career, having previously only completed one pass in his career on two attempts. Starting with Brady - the California kid who was drafted 199 of the 2000 National Football League draft.

Neither Drake or his team have addressed the casino's apology, but he will be in Vancouver for two more shows for his tour. "We are operating in one of the most complex, highly regulated industries and are always looking to better our communication and customer service", he said in the statement. "All cash and bank draft/certified cheque buy-ins for $10,0000 or more, in one or more transactions within a 24-hour period, require an original receipt of the transaction that shows the financial institution, branch number and account number".

CTV Vancouver previously reported that B.C. casinos were a popular place for money laundering linked to organized crime.

Another upset fan wrote on TripAdvisor: "Why didn't y'all let Drizzy Drake gamble when he gave you guys everything you all asked for?"

Drake fans don't fight fair, keep that in mind next time you tend to your famous patrons.

He is no stranger to exposing establishments for subjectively choosing who and who won't be accommodated based on racial profiling as he had a similar run-in with staff and management a year ago at a country club.
