Rapper, The Game, was denied service at a popular restaurant in Pasadena over the weekend for allegedly having tattoos on his arms. But the restaurant manager is telling HipHollywood that the story is false.

“We don’t allow sleeveless shirts by gentleman,” the manager of Houston’s told us. “That’s why he was denied service.” The manager also noted that Jayceon Terrell Taylor, the rapper’s legal name, was also a “regular at Houston’s.”

According to The Game, he was trying to get some lunch at the upscale eatery on Sunday when one of the managers allegedly told him his tattoos were threatening.

“NEVER eating @ Houston’s restaurants as long as I live ! Denied service in Pasadena by mgr “Vy Diep” because: I have tattoos on my arms,” the rapper wrote in a series of tweets.

“Its 90 degrees outside so I have a tank top on & the manager on duty “Vy Diep” says the tattoos on my arms are threatening 2 lunch customers,” Game continued.

The Game later tweeted that this wasn’t the first time he has had a problem at the popular restaurant. “2nd time I’ve been racially profiled at Houston’s… Last time in Santa Monica, this time in Pasadena,” he added.

The rapper took to the social media website to start a boycott with the hashtag, #Don’tEatAtHouston’sPasadena.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.
