T.I. Under Fire For Accepting Apology on Behalf of Couple Discriminated Against in Atlanta


This week Umi Sushi in Atlanta went viral for refusing to serve a Black couple because the husband was were sneakers, despite white people inside the restaurant with sneakers on. 

The couple who were put out calls out rapper T.I. for accepting an apology from Umi without contacting them first...

It all started after the couple uploaded video of the incident where the owner of Umi brags about his high profile Black friends and tells the couple their video won't do any good.

 

Later T.I. sat down with the owner and accepted his apology




And that's when the man who was discriminated against spoke out. 


Later T.I. defended his actions.

CTFU at the self appointed Mayor of Atl. Clearly this man & his wife was able to handle the situation with out spectators. Side note, i find humor in this OG wearing his hair like Pop Smoke & not being taking serious...LOL

Not defending Umi cuz we know that shit happens, but its one of my Favorite sushi spots & I've never had a problem there...Even when I've showed up with no reservations. I always see rappers or celebs dining so I'm gonna assume they had some riff-raff ass A-T-alien entourages acting up. Its a small quaint spot & there's no room for bullshit

We all saw the video and I am so happy that black people will be canceling this restuarant and saying F to the owner. Discrimination is Discrimination no excuse, both had sneakers and both should have been thrown out. Oh how quickly the owner made sure to take down their social media account, displaying other customers inside the restaurant clearly wearing sneakers.

T.I. holds no credibility and I'm happy other black celebrities aren't falling for the name dropping BS the owner so arrangently displayed justifying his actions.

Somebody was spot on a couple weeks ago when they described these fools as old-ass, tired-ass, washed-up rappers. That’s exactly what they are and they all need to sit the fuck down and shut up.

The real question is why would that man look up to TI, please answer that?

Laa soul said...

Let me guess, the owner called the token kneegrow T.I. for a sit down because remember he said he has high profile Black friends, so I guess that means he's not interested in common Black folk patronizing his establishment, huh? Well he can GTFOHWTBS.

And as for T.I. I'm tired of his ass running around here in these streets acting like Al Sharpton the activist and Benjamin Crump, the attorney all rolled up into one. He needs to just go and have several seats because he can get dragged for filth too.

He should have spoken to the people discriminated against first.

It's sad that the Black community has rappers as leaders now. You don't see this shit in the non-ADOS African, Asian, and Jewish communities. It's time for Black people to literally cancel and abandon rap culture. Disown it and treat it like the trash it is!

T.I. didn't say expeditiously... call 911.

TI takes his position too seriously. Run for office and see what kind of support you get. If you don't win, then have a seat. That mean nobody cares for you. Just like your recent album sales.

Whichever fools look up to these idiot rappers, sport figures or any celebrity types for guidance, really need to jump off a cliff. That is all.

Ramon said...

Its 2020. Black MEN and WOMEN, melanated people of the Sun, the Cosmos, and the Ether don't need ANY leaders we just need to look within. Look towards the real stars, not these manufactured ones....

10:42 - yup, these creeps have been calling women bitches, hoes and telling the community to treat us with disdain for decades...we still listen, watch and consume their bullshit and now they think they can tell us how we are going to handle our lives and communities while high up on a hill...
that shit is trash and i'm tired of these asshats and their bufoolery, TI needs his ass whooped a few times over! He's deserved it from the community

TI has appointed himself as a mouth piece the same way his lil insecure azz appointed himself the rap "King of the South". LOLOL I am all for thinking highly of yourself and high self-esteem, but this dude stay doing the most. Trust me, ain't nobody checking for T.I. or any one else running up to the podium from the rap community. I don't need none of them to speak on my behalf. #CarryOn

T.I. is wearing his halloween costume early....as a clown ass nigga.

He must be doing meth again.
I know he was on meth for a long while and then he got locked up in LA and caught with the meth and had Tiny to take the charge like an idiot. and so maybe he's back on it.

I don't know who you are but anyone could do a quick search and determine that UMI and it's owners have a long history of discriminating against black men & women. So your post of good cheer seems disingenuous. This isn't the first time the owners have arbitrarily enforced a dress code on black people, while the white folks eating inside were exempt. The owner's apology should have been extended to the husband & wife he disrespected and offended.

I hope TI realizes doing shit like this ruins his reputation with black people and when there's another incident that he tries to get in front of, he might not have the black community's support. You have to be honest & fair when you attack racism & discrimination but this video makes him appear compromised.

Have several seats little man

I'm not surprised he inserted himself here. He did practically appoint himself gatekeeper of his daughters vagina.

This is all centered around classism. Had T.I. or one of the owners other celebrity buddies shown up to dine in tennis shoes, there would've been no issue. O'l racist ass dune coons. Why are negroes patronizing their restaurant anyway?! They can't stand us!

WGforreal said...

Reality CHECK! How many black folks have gone into an Asian store and felt and or treated like a their? Yet,we spend our money there. Why?

Anonymous said...

Who the hell appointed TI as the damn don corleone of Atlanta??? The only thing TI should have said when dude reached out was “you need to sit down and talk with the couple and then issue a public apology because the shit looks bad.” Then TI should have excused his ass out of it. Half (not all) of these white Arabs are racist and color struck anyway, but they want to benefit off of blacks when it suits them.

HE WAS PAID!!
