T.I. Ends Boycott of Restaurant for Racial Discrimination After Meeting with Execs

T.I. sits high at the round table as he negotiates with execs from the Atlanta-area restaurant, Houston’s. Apparently T.I. no longer believes that the restaurant is racist, so the boycott has been lifted. According to TMZ, sources close to Tip says he’s had several meetings with execs of the establishment since October—when he first imposed the boycott … which started because several African-Americans complained that the chain was hesitant to seat them. Tip began the boycott after an incident where someone alleged that they “Stopped by Houston’s in Atlanta with a large party of African Americans and they were refused service as they watched a large party of Caucasians seated comfortably.,” reported by TMZ. T.I. was assured by the restaurant execs that there will be no racial discrimination when seating customers. T.I. also mentioned that he felt the dress code could be discriminatory against African-Americans, so the restaurant has promised that the dress code would be less strict. They also made promises to bring more minorities into restaurant’s business.⠀⠀⠀
