Getty Rhian Daly, 5th July 2016 Chance The Rapper has said that he was discriminated against on a recent visit to an amusement centre in his hometown of Chicago.
The rapper said he was made to feel unwelcome by the "new management" of WhirlyBall, a sports bar and game centre, and that the incident was racially-fueled.
As Uproxx reports, the 23-year-old tweeted: "Crazy how I was just treated at @whirlyball. Been coming here for awhile, this new management doesn't know how to treat customers".
He continued: "Don't go to @whirlyball it's very inaccessible if you're black or friends with black people, they've clearly outlined in their dress code".
