Mavado Dined At Philippe Chow Restaurant, Said Manager Discriminate Against Him Because He Is Black
Dancehall hitmaker Mavado and his family didn’t had a warm welcome to the famous Philippe Chow restaurant in New York City on Thursday.
Mavado claimed he was poorly treated and even verbally abused at the fancy Asian restaurant allegedly because he’s black.
The Gully God took to Instagram to let his fans know that his experience was less than what he expected.
“Just went to Philippe chow restaurant and this manager are who ever he wants to be been very disrespectful after I just spend a couple hundreds in side me my friend and family how could you have someone running a business and being prejudice and trying to tell customers not to come back just because he didn’t know who I am but now he knows ahahahahahaha this world we live in today @philippechownyc” – Mavado via Instagram.
Hype Life Magazine gathered that Mavado went to Philippe Chow in NYC for lunch with his family including his wife Monique and son Vuitton, where entertainer was curiously put in the back of the restaurant, even though it was pretty much empty.
Mavado didn’t complain and the family got down to business, chowing down at Chow, when he walked over to another empty table and had someone in his family take a pic of him.
The entertainer said that’s when a manager said he couldn’t sit at that table because they were expecting guests.
Mavado claimed the manager added he was prohibited from using his phone in any manner.
The entertainer told reporters that he felt like they wanted him and his family to leave the restaurant.
Mavado then reportedly accused the restaurant of treating him shabbily because he’s black, and the manager allegedly slammed the bill on the table and told him never to come back.
Mavado claimed his manager was later contacted by the restaurant and they profusely apologized, saying they didn’t know he was a famous person. Mavado says he’ll never go back.
As for the restaurant, we called and a manager said, “We are talking to Mavado’s people and we have no comment.”
