Drake Says Vancouver Casino Racially Profiled Him, Prevented Him From Gambling

”We categorically stand against racism of any kind,“ the casino responds in a statement

Drake has accused the Parq Casino in Vancouver, British Columbia, of racial profiling and said he was not allowed to gamble.

The rapper took to Instagram Saturday morning to air his grievances over his experience.

“Parq Casino @parqvancouverbc is the worst run businesses I have ever witnessed,” Drake wrote in his Instagram story. “Profiling me and not allowing me to gamble when I had everything they originally asked me for.”

Drake’s reps didn’t immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment regarding the incident. The casino issued an updated statement Sunday evening after initially saying they were investigating the matter.

“You may be aware of a situation at our casino last night,” the casino’s second statement reads. “On behalf of Parq Vancouver we would like to apologize for the experience our customer had. We are operating in one of the most complex, highly regulated industries and are always looking to better our communication and customer service. We are constantly improving our communications process to ensure that these new regulations are better understood by all guests. We categorically stand against racism of any kind. We are committed to providing a safe, secure and enjoyable experience for all.”

Drake is currently on his Aubrey & The Three Migos tour, doing two nights in Vancouver at the Rogers Arena on Nov. 3 and Nov. 4. See a screen grab of Drake’s Instagram story below:
