The Game Australia Denied Me Because I Did Bad Things

2/23/2016 6:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Game says the Australian Dept. of Immigration and Boarder Protection sugar coated the reason he was denied entry into the country ... Game says it was because of his criminal past.

Game was leaving Mastro's in Bev Hills Monday night when he was super candid, saying he blames no one but himself. He was set to do 4 shows in Oz this week but the shows had to be cancelled.

Game has been charged with several crimes, and pled no contest to felony weapons charges a few years back.

Australia is strict about letting foreigners in with criminal records. Chris Brown was also denied entry.
