Meek Mill put the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas on blast on Twitter after hotel security denied him entry and threatened him with arrest if he did not leave.
Mill’s first tweet about the situation read, “If you come from our culture you should never step foot in the Cosmopolitan Hotel. They just racist as hell…Something really has to be done in Las Vegas what they doing to black people!”
Mill followed with, “They telling black rappers they are banned from properties they own without incident…They just told me I was trespassing and I will be arrested. I stepped in that hotel once at a Jay Z party without incident!”
Mill then shared this video from the incident where security told him he would be arrested for trespassing if he did not leave but did not tell him why he was considered trespassing. He captioned the video, “The Cosmopolitan Hotel…and it’s a few other hotels that be doing this to black entertainers because they don’t want too many blacks on they property! Vegas notorious for this too. It’s not just me!!!!”
Mill’s last tweet on the incident read, “I needs lawyers ASAP y’all. Not gone treat me like I’m just a rapper and expect me to be quiet.”
Per TMZ, Mill’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, has since submitted a letter to the Cosmopolitan that says, “…we have learned that the Cosmopolitan maintains a list of African American recording artists who should be denied access for no other reason than their culture and skin color. Such course of conduct constitutes discrimination per se, in violation of state and federal law, and exposes you to significant monetary damages…we urge you to promptly issue an apology to Mr. Williams and grant him immediate access. In the event you fail to heed this one and only warning, we intend to pursue all legal recourse against you.”
