Busta Rhymes Flips Out at Restaurant, Allegedly Calls Staff Fags, Bitches! [Details]

Busta Rhymes doesn’t like to wait in lines.

Apparently Rhymes, whose real name is Trevor Tahiem Smith Jr., believes he privileged to skip customers because of his years he’s dedicated to the music industry. Unfortunately, everyone else doesn’t feel the same way. Busta allegedly threw an offensive tantrum at workers at a Miami Beach restaurant, after he wasn’t allowed to cut in line for a burger on Wednesday morning.

Stephanie Vitori, the owner of Cheeseburger Baby, claims Rhymes became belligerent when the restaurant refused to take his order before others waiting in line. Rhymes allegedly got so offended that he spewed several homophobic slurs. He called one server a ‘fag’ and the owner a ‘bitch.’

Miami New Times reports:

When Busta rolled into Cheeseburger Baby, owner Stephanie Vitori says, it was 5:45 a.m., a time that’s typically busy for the restaurant, as servers are slinging burgers to partiers on their way home from clubs. Busta wanted to be served first, and the restaurant refused.

“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 explains.

Instead, he returned to his car to wait for his order. But after his food was delivered to him in the car, Vitori says, “He came back in the restaurant and started becoming outwardly angry. He was calling our delivery driver Santiago a ‘fag’ multiple times, and me a ‘bitch’ and [telling] me ‘to shut the fuck up’ because we put his salt, pepper, ketchup, and mayo — that he asked for — on the side.

“On the side is just how we do it,” she explains. “We don’t want your burger getting soggy!”

Vitori told Huffington Post that after an employee explained the policy to Rhymes, he allegedly screamed, “F*** you, fag! I’m not leaving until I get ketchup, mayo, salt and pepper on my burger.”

Vitori called police and instructed employees to open Rhymes’ mayo and ketchup packets and dress his burger to get him out of the restaurant. He left before Miami Beach Police arrived.

Vitori filed a police report. But had to call them again after a member of Rhymes’ entourage called the restaurant to tell them they were returning. Officers stayed at the restaurant until staff closed up.

“Over putting ketchup, mayo, salt and pepper on a burger? For real, you can’t open up a mayo and ketchup packet?” Vitori told Huffington Post. “It’s not right. I’m a gay business owner, and you don’t use that term. It’s degrading.”
