Meek Mill Reportedly Denied Entry at ‘Racist as Hell’ Las Vegas Hotel

Meek Mill is putting the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on blast for racism after he was denied entry into the establishment. The resort has explained their actions, but there seem to be several discrepancies with their story.


The “Amen” rapper and two members of his crew were stopped from entering Cosmopolitan on Friday afternoon, reports TMZ.


The group was going to see a show at the Marquee Dayclub inside the hotel when security allegedly asked them to leave or risk arrest.

An enraged Mill (real name Robert Rihmeek Williams) documented the experience in several videos posted to social media.

In footage posted to Mill’s Twitter page, two apparent employees of the hotel are seen addressing the rapper who asked: “How can you tell me I’ll be locked up for trespassing?”



“So here’s the deal,” replies one of the staff members. “We are private property, and at this time, with the information we have, we're refusing to do business with you, we have the right to do that.”

In his caption, Mill claimed the Cosmopolitan is only one of several other hotels in Vegas who discriminate against black entertainers.


In another video, the second staff member proceeds to read Mill the Nevada state code, saying to the group:

“I’m not accusing you of anything. I wasn’t there, I don’t know. This is way bigger than me. Obviously, you’re somebody…If you do not leave these premises immediately, you will be subject to arrest for a misdemeanor.”

“Arrested for what?????” Mill queried in the caption.



“If you come from our culture you should never step foot in the cosmopolitan hotel they just really racist as hell,” Mill added in a tweet. “Something really has to be done in Las Vegas what they doing to black people!”

“I needs (sic) lawyers ASAP,” he announced in another tweet. “Y’all not gone (sic) treat me like I’m just a rapper and expect me to be quiet.”

In a statement obtained by CNN, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas claimed their decision to deny Mill entry was as a result of the Marquee Dayclub being at capacity per the Las Vegas Fire Marshal code.



Mill’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, however, refuted the claims in a counter-statement:

“The assertion that the Cosmopolitan denied Meek because of capacity concerns at Marquee Dayclub is outright false. In the recorded video, Meek also inquired about getting a meal at one of the hotel's restaurants, yet their security team continued to deny Meek and said he would be arrested for trespassing regardless of location in the premises. The Cosmopolitan's conduct continues to be deplorable.”



A source from Cosmopolitan also reportedly claimed Mill was denied entry because of a prior incident where he "fought with security guards" at the hotel.

"Meek Mill was never involved in a fight on their property, ever and I challenge the Cosmopolitan to produce a video of such altercation or a contemporaneous incident report,” Tacopina shot back via TMZ. “The legal case against the Cosmopolitan just got stronger.”

The celebrity news site has also revealed that Mill will be filing a lawsuit against the Cosmopolitan hotel.
