Drake says he was profiled, denied service at Vancouver’s Parq Casino

Toronto rapper Drake has accused Vancouver’s Parq Casino of profiling him and denying him service.

In an Instagram story posted around 3:30 a.m. Saturday morning, the musician claimed he had been turned away from the gaming facility.

“Parq Casino @parqvancouverbc is the worst run business I have ever witnessed…profiling me and not allowing me to gamble when I had everything they originally asked me for,” Drake wrote.

Global News has requested comment from Drake’s management for more details about the alleged incident.

The rapper is in Vancouver ahead of Saturday and Sunday tour dates at Rogers Arena.

He also made a surprise appearance at Fortune Sound Cloud earlier Saturday morning.

In a statement released Saturday morning, Narinder Nagra, Parq’s director of resort marketing, said it the company was looking into the incident.

“Parq Vancouver is sorry to hear about this experience and takes these matters very seriously.  We are required to adhere to strict regulations with respect to gaming in British Columbia,” she said.

“We are actively investigating this matter and have made several efforts to reach out to the customer and his team to discuss the issue. We are committed to having a productive conversation to resolve this issue.”

The Instagram post has set off something of a social media storm.

Parq’s Instagram account and Yelp page were quickly bombarded with negative comments from Drake’s fans.
