Lil Scrappy

'Racist' Salon Owners

Ruined My Kid's B-Day

3/30/2014 3:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0330-lil-scrappy-tmz-01"Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Lil Scrappy says his daughter was left in tears Sunday afternoon ... after a salon owner refused to serve his family because they're black.

Scrappy tells TMZ ... he put a down payment on a little girls salon outside Atlanta for his daughter's birthday party -- but when he and baby mama Erica Dixon arrived 20 minutes late to their 2 1/2 hour appointment, the place wouldn't let them in.

When Scrappy complained, citing the down payment they already paid ... he says the people running the place -- who are white -- allegedly told him they didn't want to serve "you people."

Cops were called -- because Scrappy didn't want to leave without a refund on his down payment -- but officers got him half the money ... and the salon agreed to mail the rest, so he left.

Calls to the salon went unanswered.

He's lying. A salon will and should turn u away wen u r late. Being late screws up the other appts that people that are on time for. Get over yourself. Next time make an appt with a salon that has black owners then. Wut a racist pig.

Hairdressers are some of the most ego driven pieces of sh*t on the planet. They grossly overestimate their skills and worth. People should boycott any who charge more than $50 for a haircut.

This guy was so P*ssed of that they refused service due to his tardiness that he whipped the "we don't want to serve you people" race card out of his sleeve. I'm not buying it for a single second and hope he gets sued for slander. Reverse-racism people are the most vile and disgusting creatures on Earth.

Why do they always play the race card as an excuse for their own stupidity? They were 20 minuets late, so do they expect the salon to work to their timeline. No they are selfish and irresponsible it had nothing to do with race.

Don't show up late! The got some of their money back but shouldn't get the rest. The salon likely turned away other people because the place was reserved.

Calling BS on this story. Especially the posed photo of the distraught family. Tired of the race card all the time. There are true incidents of horrible racism and crap like this just buries and dilutes those stories and events.

"You people" could have to do with the. Fact that they were 20 mins late , meanings ignorant, selfish people who show up late. Time is. Only in a. Solon ... Be on time or don't expect to be seen.

I'm really confused as to what being late has to do with anything. If I owned this shop I wouldn't care if u were late u payed me it's your lost in money. They booked 2 1/2 hours not just 20 mins. That's 20 min of free money and no screaming kids. Next they were late to a party not a job interview.
