Pusha T has spoken out against Venue 112 sports lounge and their use of an "imaginary guest list" for black patrons.
Pusha T had a pretty awful night in his hometown of Virginia yesterday, as he unloaded a series of Tweets calling out a local business for racist practices. The GOOD Music rapper accused Venue 112-- a sports lounge in the area --for using a fake guest list to discourage black patrons from entering the space, calling it the "most racist establishment in the 757".
This morning, he took to Instagram to expand on his thoughts, writing "A history of reviews online and on social media share in a seamless thread of bigotry involving your establishment. I will never come there again. You didn't know me last night but u will learn everything abt me. And u will correct this wrong."
The lounge's Yelp page shows multiple reviews which echo Pusha's experience, one of which also confirms the phony guest list tactic, with a user writing, "Overall racist, it's 2015 we had to wait outside and white patrons walk in. I would give a 0 if possible."
Check out Pusha's thoughts below. Hopefully his reach will be enough to get the restaurant shut down.
Venue sports lounge on Great Neck Rd in Virginia Beach definitely wins award for most racist establishment in the 757— PUSHA T (@PUSHA_T) June 2, 2015
Venue sports lounge on Great Neck rd. doesn't respect black business and makes black patrons stand outside while letting whites in. In 2015— PUSHA T (@PUSHA_T) June 2, 2015
No one in the 757should support or patronize Venue sports lounge in VA Beach or any other racist establishments in the area.— PUSHA T (@PUSHA_T) June 2, 2015
Last night should've never happened @venue112 . These "imaginary guest list" u impose on potential black patrons is a slap in the face to the Great Neck community, Virginia Beach, and the 757 as a whole. My phone has been ringing since 6am with stories abt your racist ways. A history of reviews online and on social media share in a seamless thread of bigotry involving your establishment. I will never come there again. You didn't know me last night but u will learn everything abt me. And u will correct this wrong.
You whispered a little too loud last night @jlinds112 @venue112 we heard u tell your doorman, "tell them we are on guest list only tonight." Unfortunately your other worker had already put the band on my friends wrist and wasn't hip to your racially motivated instructions. Doormen, we aren't angry with u. You were only doing your job and as doormen u are to do what you are told, i understand. You will correct this wrong with me, I eat breakfast in the area most mornings as well as workout extremely close by. Ask around abt me. @wtkr3 @wavy_news @103jamzradio @z104fans @hot91online
