Supperclub LA Releases Statement on Game and T.I.’s Standoff With LAPD
Earlier this week, T.I. and Game were involved in a heated standoff with the Los Angeles Police Department, after the two rappers believed a member of their entourage was beaten up by the boys in blue.
Supperclub Los Angeles, the venue where the melee went down, has released a statement regarding the incident, addressing the seriousness of the matter.
“The events that happened in the parking lot behind Supperclub Los Angeles in the early hours of Wednesday morning are severely disheartening, leaving our company and organization frustrated, and our Hollywood neighbors saddened,” said the owners of the popular venue.
The statement also reveals the whole skirmish could have been avoided if the person who didn’t was denied entry into the club would have handled it differently. The owners also blame a third person security guard who took matters into his own hands.
“An unfortunate escalation between an angry on-looker who was denied entry to Supperclub, and a rogue security officer who took matters too far, led to an untenable altercation which represented the worst in all of us,” the statement reads.
In addition, the Supperclub addresses the fact that T.I. and Game had nothing to do with things escalating.
“Although T.I. and The Game were in the parking lot during this time, they were not directly involved with this incident,” read the statement. “The third party security company that was hired for this outside promotional event, is not a part of Supperclub Los Angeles, and will never be booked by Supperclub, or the venue’s outside promotional vendors again.
As of now, there hasn’t been an official response from T.I. or the Game after the statement was released.
