T.I.participates in protest of Houston’s restaurant in Atlanta
Rapper/actor T.I. went into activism mode this past weekend, he joined protesters against Houston’s restaurant after several people accused the restaurant of discrimination.
“We’ll close Houston’s down indefinitely . When they figure out how to treat us, they can open back up.”-T.I.
The problem seems to come from Houstons policy on refusing to seat large parties and many say the policy is only applied to African American customers.
