Cosmopolitan Hotel, the hotel that recently went viral after denying Meek Mill entry denies that it had anything to do with race - they say they were just full.
"Marquee Dayclub had reached capacity per Las Vegas Fire Marshall code. Earlier that day, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police had been called onsite to manage a larger than usual venue crowd. Accordingly, when Marquee Dayclub was contacted in advance of Meek Mill's arrival, security staff clarified that he would not be granted access because of capacity issues, in accordance with both club and resort policy. Upon his arrival, it was reiterated to Meek Mill and his team for a second time that access to the venue was not permitted," the hotel said in a statement to TMZ.
"Meek Mill refused to depart property and was then informed that any continued attempt would result in trespassing."
The statement is contrary to the video Meek recorded in which staff threaten to have him arrested for trespassing if he did not leave the property, citing a prior incident. They did not state that the hotel was full and even denied him entry to grab something to eat.
