Drake says he was profiled, denied service at Vancouver’s Parq Casino

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 bad reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor.

"Parq Casino is worst run business I have ever witnessed." he lamented.

After Drake posted his grievance on Instagram, fans voiced their anger on Twitter, and left crushing reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor.

Jtrojnar227 speculated that the casino's, 'Business ruined, L from papi'.

He took to his Instagram stories and claimed he was the victim of racial profiling at the Parq. Hotel officials tell TMZ that they are investigating the allegations and taking the matter seriously.

Following the incident, the casino released a public apology to CTV Vancouver.

Dodgers, Clayton Kershaw agree to deal
BRAVES: The Braves did not extend a qualifying offer to any of their free agents, including cleanup hitter Nick Markakis. The deal will pay Kershaw $93 million, a source told ESPN, and includes incentives based on workload and performance.

Narinder Nagra, Parq's spokesperson, said the casino has to follow "strict" regulations with respect to gaming. Still, the situation doesn't seem to have earned the casino any favor.

"We are constantly improving our communications process to ensure that these new regulations are better understood by all guests", he writes.

Addressing Drake's claim of racism, he added: "We categorically stand against racism of any kind".

Toronto rapper Drake has been on the road and away from home since August. "BCLC's new $10,000 limit to combat money laundering is probably the real reason for Drake being denied service at Parq Vancouver. We are committed to providing a safe, secure and enjoyable experience for all", he said.

Nearly immediately after his posting, fans went wild on the Casino's social media, flooding the comments section with backlash about the "trash" casino, and giving shout-outs to Champaign Papi. Parq y'all did this to yourself lol.

Drake is known for hitting up casinos around the world and can regularly be seen having wild nights with friends.
