Busta Rhymes Reportedly Has Meltdown In South Beach Burger Joint
Apparently in need of a late night burger fix, it’s been alleged that the animated Busta Rhymes had a meltdown over having to wait in line at a South Beach fast food joint. Employees at Miami’s Cheeseburger Baby say that the “dungeon dragon” verbally assaulted them with insults and hom0phobic slurs after being delivered his food. Guess Busta was a little hungry?
The Miami New Times reports that the shop’s owner, Stephanie Vitori, refused to let Rhymes cut in line in front of other waiting patrons. Vitori and her staff’s refusal to show favor caused the rapper to launch his tirade at 5:45 a.m.
“He got very upset when we wouldn’t take his order first when he was the last one to come in. We treat everyone as equals here at CBB. You can’t skip the line of ten people waiting in front of you,” Vitori said to the Times.
Rhymes reportedly returned to his car to wait on his order, but then Vitori claims he came back into the restaurant and began to sling harsh words. Vitori says Rhymes called a delivery person “f-g” and referred to her as “b-tch” while also complaining about his order. Vitori was forced to call police to the burger spot after which the Cash Money Records artist left the premises.
Busa Buss wasn’t satisfied with his rant, says Vitori. He reportedly called Cheeseburger Baby to complain that there wasn’t any cheese on his burger and that he would be returning to the restaurant to “come get” the employees. Vitori also stated she’s never had run-ins with famous folks at her business, which has been frequented by stars such as Kanye West, Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
We hope the burger was tasty, though.
