Yesterday on Instagram, Meek Mill posted a video of security at The Cosmopolitan resort in Las Vegas denying him entrance into the building and they said they would’ve arrested him if he stepped out of his car. Meek accused the resort of being racist and doing black people wrong while taking their money at the same time. His attorney Joe Tacopina also threatened to hit them with a lawsuit.
The Cosmo is denying all accusations of racism as they have told TMZ that they “have a zero tolerance for discrimination” and that Meek couldn’t come into Marquee Dayclub because it was over capacity. They also claimed that police had to step in to control the crowd.
“Marquee Dayclub had reached capacity per Las Vegas Fire Marshall code. Earlier that day, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police had been called onsite to manage a larger than usual venue crowd. Accordingly, when Marquee Dayclub was contacted in advance of Meek Mill’s arrival, security staff clarified that he would not be granted access because of capacity issues, in accordance with both club and resort policy. Upon his arrival, it was reiterated to Meek Mill and his team for a second time that access to the venue was not permitted.”
When the incident happened, The Cosmo added that Meek’s arrest would’ve been for trespassing. Attorney Tacopina also said that The resort has a list of black rappers that they keep to make sure who doesn’t come in. It’s crazy to see The Cosmo not know that a high-profile name like Meek was on the way to the club. It seems that they’re lying about the over capacity claim since they couldn’t bring one more person in and it being someone as famous as Meek. It would be no surprise to see more evidence of racism come out from The Cosmo soon.
Check out Meek’s video of the incident below.
