Drake Accuses Canadian Casino Of Racial Profiling
Drake has accused a casino in Vancouver of racial discrimination after staff reportedly blocked him from gambling over the weekend.
The rapper wrote about his experience at the Parq Casino on Instagram stories -- calling out the venue as "the worst run business [he had] ever witnessed".
"Profiling me and not allowing me to gamble when I had everything they originally asked me for," he wrote.
The casino has since responded to Drake's complaint -- but said their staff were only complying with British Columbia's strict gambling reforms.
According to the new rules announced by the province's Lottery Corporation in January -- casinos in B.C are required to "gather detailed information on the source of player funds for all transactions of $10,000 or more".

The Parq Vancouver president -- Joe Brunini -- has apologised to Drake in a statement, but denied that racism was the reason the rapper was unable to gamble.
"On behalf of Parq Vancouver we would like to apologise for the experience our customer had," wrote Brunini.
"We are operating in one of the most complex, highly regulated industries and are always looking to better our communication and customer service.
“We categorically stand against racism of any kind. We are committed to providing a safe, secure and enjoyable experience for all,” Brunini said.
Fans of the "In My Feelings" rapper have already left dozens of savage reviews on the Parq Casino's Yelp page.
"I would definitely never come here for after hearing about this. I'm sure the same will apply to millions of Drake's followers," one fan wrote on the page, which is now sitting at a two-star rating.
Drake was in Vancouver to play a show at Rogers Arena as part of his current tour with Migos.
