Rapper Pusha T is Not Here for Bigotry

Virginia rapper, Pusha T activated his 140 characters and spread his anger across Instagram after a failed attempt to dine at what he now deems to be “the most racist establishment.”

The G.O.O.D. music artist and a few friends planned to kick back at Venue 112, a sports lounge in Virgina Beach, but were met with what appeared to be a racially motivated dismissal. In a string of social media posts, Pusha explained that he overheard someone at the venue ordering the doormen to tell the rapper and his friends that there was “guest list only” access on that evening.

Pusha let it be known that the comments did not go unnoticed.

Apparently, these sort of actions are the norm for the establishment as more Black people spoke about their negative treatment and experiences while visiting the lounge, further supporting Pusha T’s claims.

Adding insult to injury, one of Pusha’s friends was already given a wristband for entry into the lounge and access was still denied.

Although the rapper isn’t looking for an apology, he chose to bring the issue to the forefront to let people know that status does not exempt you from racial discrimination.
