Busta Rhymes Unleashes Homophobic Tirade Over Hamburger: REPORT

Rapper Busta Rhymes reportedly unleashed a tirade of homophobic slurs at employees at a Miami Beach restaurant this morning after he wasn't allowed to cut in line and then became angry that his condiments were not properly dressing his burger, the HuffPost reports:

RhymesStephanie Vitori, the owner of local late-night favorite Cheeseburger Baby, told The Huffington Post the rapper's party became belligerent when the restaurant refused to take their order before others waiting in line -- then Rhymes flew into a rage when condiments were served on the side, calling one server a "fag" and Vitori a "bitch."

"It's degrading," said Vitori, who is gay. "Thirteen years and every celebrity in there, and I've never had a problem."

The restaurant told him it was first come first served, but served him promptly, they say:

But despite being served his to-go bag within 10 minutes, Vitori said Rhymes became enraged that his mayonaise, ketchup, salt and pepper were included on the side -- something she said Cheeseburger Baby does as a rule to prevent soggy buns.

According to Vitori, after an employee explained the policy to the 40-year-old rapper, he allegedly screamed, "F*** you, fag! I'm not leaving until I get ketchup, mayo, salt and pepper on my burger," and he began coming over the counter. "F*** you, bitch," he said, turning to Vitori.

Vitori filed a police report.

It's not the first homophobic incident Rhymes has had at a Miami Beach restaurant.

In 2006, Towleroad reported on an incident he had with a fan at the 11th Street Diner during the Winter Music Conference in which a fan tapped him on the shoulder to compliment him and Rhymes allegedly replied:'Why the [bleep] you touchin' me, man? Get the [bleep] away from me' . . . his two huge bodyguards then caused an even larger scene by pushing the kid away . . . Busta quietly whispered to his bodyguards, 'I hate [bleeping] faggots, man.'"

The HuffPost notes that Rhymes spoke out in support of Frank Ocean when he came out, saying, “I don't know if it's just about hip-hop being willing to accept it, I think the whole world is ready to accept whatever people choose to be in life.”

  1. What is he famous for?

  2. Busta's ignorance knows no bounds. Why would anybody serve this self-important fool?

  3. Andy, in the minds of folks like this, it is easier to "accept a Gay person in theory" than it is to stop using "fxxxxx" to complain about perceived weakness or lameness.
    BTW- I feel that serving all the condiments on the side sounds like Lesbianic over-thinking, but only a moron with a damaged male ego would make that fuss over it.

  4. Busta's stupidity here goes to show that a lot of people, not just Busta, lie and make gay positive comments to the media although in practice they aren't truly totally OK with homosexuality.

    Busta has long, long had gay rumors attached to him. Closeted or not, he's a fool. Expecting a PR-apology before the night ends.

  6. "I think the whole world is ready to accept whatever people choose to be in life.”

    Says it all. Gays choose to be gay... sigh.
    Another moronic homophobe who will never grow up.

  7. This punk is an example of human garbage. He should be barred from those restaurants where he has acted up. There's no reason for decent people to tolerate his kind of behavior, it's bad for business and could be dangerous. Get a restraining order and let him get his burgers at Micky D's.

  8. Another fading "star" making the news for ignorance. SMH
    As far as the condiments on the side? I work in a bar restaurant and whenever anything is ordered to go, we always put them on the side. Pretty sure it's a standard practice.

  9. Everyone has heard the rumours about Busta Rhymes being a closet case.

    His homophobia indicates it might be true.

  10. I'm not sure if this is a proper homophobic incident per se, some rappers are so used to use homnophobic and sexist words than it's almost impossible to avoid that kind of language when they get angry.

    I find some part of hip hop world very posing, it's all about gestures, no natural at all.
    It's like the themes in songs, it's all about b***, money, being rich and being more macho than anyone. Totally a pose in a lot of cases.
    In fact if a rapper don't fill that mold or he is educated, gay rumours will surround him very quickly

  11. And what are Busta Rhymes...?

    Posted by: Esther Blodgett | Apr 3, 2013 4:44:41 PM

  12. Yeah,,,,he's probably gay. As Shakespeare said,,,,does thou protest a bit much?

    Posted by: lucian | Apr 3, 2013 4:46:25 PM

  13. "what would you expect?"

    You would expect a celebrity worth 50 million dollars to behave like a decent human being. We don't need a Mel Gibson performance from these rich privileged motha' f.ckas.

    (didn't expect that response from me, didya', Hagatha Hearne?)

  14. Yet another black homophobe.

  15. "Yet another black homophobe."

    Yeah, Adam, you mean just like that coach at Rutgers.

    "Retrieve the ball, f.ggot!"

    I despise Busta, but some of you make me puke too...or is it "also"?

    Posted by: Derrick from Philly | Apr 3, 2013 5:18:26 PM

  16. @Bob: "Lesbianic over-thinking" in a post about prejudice.... really?

    Posted by: coexxi | Apr 3, 2013 5:32:52 PM

  17. @ Derrick from Philly the coach was fired. This over the hill clown will just sell more albums over this incident.

    Stop being such an uppity gay, uh, African American. Yeah that's it.

  18. He needs some anger management classes. There is no excuse for overreacting, let alone with anti-gay slurs, about condiments.

  19. Shocking just shocking- another no talent homophobic thug!

    Posted by: jaragon | Apr 3, 2013 5:40:07 PM

  20. Just another f*ck*ng thug who can't control his mouth except when he's sucking up to Frank Ocean. Frank should frankly tell Busta to go to hell with his hypocrit *ss. And the rest of civilization can take the civilized approach and boycott this m*th*r-f*ck*r in every way possible. Bastard belongs behind bars for hate crimes where he can really be "appreciated" by his cell-mates. He wanted mayo smeared on his buns.....ha ha ha ha!!!! Maybe he really wanted something else smeared on his buns.

    Posted by: ToThePoint | Apr 3, 2013 5:46:17 PM

  21. Why the HELL do we as a society give these low-life, scum bag thugs any notoriety at all? These talentless hacks mumble into a microphone about "niggaz" and "ho's" and rich little white kids eat it up. Then some douchenozzle hands the idiot a Grammy (joke) and we're sentenced to more and more of this hateful drivel.
    ENOUGH !!!

  24. "Vitori said Rhymes became enraged that his mayonaise, ketchup, salt and pepper were included on the side -- something she said Cheeseburger Baby does as a rule to prevent soggy buns"

    So Busta Rhymes likes soggy buns? That's...helpful to know, lol.

    and to you race-baiting queens....cut it out.
