Rapper The Game took to Twitter after his exposed arm tattoos allegedly got him booted from the Pasadena location of Houston's restaurant. The Game, who entered the restaurant wearing a tank top, says a Houston's manager asked to him leave because his arm tattoos were "threatening 2 lunch customers." According to E! Online, a Houston's manager "would not comment on the incident involving the rapper, but he did say Houston's has a strict dress code. The restaurant requires sleeves on all their patrons."

In follow-up Tweets, Game writes this is the "2nd time I've been racially profiled at Houston's... Last time in Santa Monica, this time in Pasadena." The Game's Tweets have sparked a hashtag among fans, urging others: #DontEatAtHoustonsPasadena.
