The Game

Restaurant BOOTED Me Because I'm Black

9/6/2011 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Game
claims he's just been kicked out of a famous L.A. restaurant because he's BLACK -- even referring to the manager as a "slave master" ... but the restaurant insists they were simply enforcing the dress code.

Sources close to Game tell TMZ, the rapper dropped by Hillstone's in Santa Monica -- formally known as Houston's -- wearing a white tank top ... when the manager refused to seat him.

According to sources, the manager told Game he was in violation of the dress code, which requires men to wear sleeves. But Game's pals tell TMZ ... there were two white males in the restaurant with sleeveless shirts ... and it wasn't a problem.

Game believes the 86'ing was racially motivated -- and took to Twitter moments ago -- telling his 644,000 followers, "Houston's just went from my favorite resturant to the "RACIST-URANT" !!!!"

The rapper added, "Hillstone's racist-urant formerly known as Houston's & their slave-master manager Valerie has just made #1 on the RACIST resturant list !"

A rep for the restaurant tells us ... Game only pointed to a lone sleeveless woman at the bar -- NOT two men -- and says the sleeve rule does not apply to females.

The rep says the restaurant would love to have The Game back ... when he's wearing the appropriate clothing.

One goes to a restaurant to dine and not be grossed out by ARMPIT HAIR or ARMPIT ODOR.

I don't care for the "Game" and he has been acting out lately which will probably land him in jail fairly soon. I think this is a gender problem more than a racial problem. Either the restaurant should allow sleeveless shirts or not - regardless of man or woman. However, the Game playing the old race card is weak. I'm sure the place serves many people of color every day without incident.

From his lyrics, he hates his own race. Somebody needs to send him that memo that white folks aren't moved by that ghetto posturing... and I'm certain that the restaurant isn't going go under because his posse is boycotting it, if anything it'd advertise that riff-raff has sworn off ever to returning.

Didn't Game learn anything from last weeks tweet? He thinks he should be given special treatment because he's famous.

Please TMZ, no more close ups of his face. Thanks.

There's a problem here    

Ya know Mr "The Game" you had a freaking tank top on. Surprisingly you had shoes on. You pull the race card then emphasize your stupidity by not even understanding common sense, cleanliness, and regular every day manners. It's neandrethals like you who give the Black population a bad name. Speaking of bad names WHO THE F GAVE YOU THAT RIDICULOUS NAME?
