Exclusive: Why The Game Was Really Denied Service At Popular Restaurant

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.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
