Busta Rhymes Goes on Homophobic Rant in Miami Restaurant — REPORT

If you do not get Busta Rhymes‘ cheeseburger order correct, then he might just come after you.

The Miami New Times reports that the aging hip-hopper entered Cheeseburger Baby around 6AM this morning after an evening of partying. The restaurant is pretty popular in the wee hours of the morning, so naturally, there was a line.

Stephanie Vitori, the burger joint’s owner, says the rapper grew very upset when he wasn’t allowed to cut to the front of the queue — you know, because he’s famous.

Busta then hurled insensitive slurs at Vitori, calling her a “bitch” repeatedly.

“He got very upset when we wouldn’t take his order first when he was the last one to come in,” she tells The New Times. “We treat everyone as equals here at CBB. You can’t skip the line of 10 people waiting in front of you.”

“We have had everyone from Jay-Z to Anthony Bourdain eat at Cheeseburger Baby,” she adds. “Never have we had a problem with a celebrity. That changed last night.”

Busta went back into his car to wait for his order, but that didn’t stop him from calling the delivery man a “fag.” Apparently, Rhymes didn’t like that Cheeseburger Baby employees put the salt, pepper, ketchup and mayo on the side — a policy at the restaurant.

Vitori says that the rapper didn’t leave until she threatened to call police. But it doesn’t end there. Busta allegedly called the restaurant later to tell Vitori and co. that they forgot to add cheese to his burger, which the owner claims is a false accusation. Busta then threatened to “come get [them].”

“I deal with drunk and disorderly people all the time,” Vitori says. “I have been doing this for 11 years, but never in my life have I felt more disrespected as a business owner or woman.”

We have reached out to Busta’s representatives, but as of press time have not received any comment.
