The Game

Banned from Canada Over Gang Ties

4/21/2011 6:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Game was detained in Canada for several hours yesterday, TMZ has learned, before his ass got deported back to the U.S. -- and we're told, it's all because of the rapper's alleged gang affiliation.

A rep for Substance Entertainment Group -- the promotion company behind Game's tour in Canada -- tells TMZ, the tour promoter got a call from Canadian Customs while Game was on the plane on his way to Canada.

We're told customs informed the promoter that Game would be denied entry "due to new information received that Game is affiliated with organized crime and is an active member of the Bloods street gang."

The rep claims Game was blindsided by the last-minute red flag -- telling us, concert organizers had secured all permits and approval weeks ago to get Game into the country.

Bad news for everyone who bought a ticket to his upcoming Canadian shows -- tour's cancelled.

1. Canadians, treated me with only Respect and Righteousness.
(97% of the time, you give some - you get some, son)
2. THIS, has absolutely NOTHING to do with illegal immigrants.
(ANOTHER weak attempt to change the REAL subject)
3. Claimin' this, representin' that? Play a dirty game, PAY
the dirty cost.

Good job, Canada. Guess Charlie Sheen was as low as they wanted to go. Too bad we're not as choosy here in the US.

Only a matter of time before someone played the race card, LOL. We don't play the race card around here much because we don't have so much history tangled up in racism the way America does. Learn some history, we were the ones that helped blacks FLEE from slavery, so remember that next time you try to throw the race card around, ding bat.
