T.I. Leads Boycott of Atlanta Restaurant Over Discrimination Claims

( Atlanta native T.I. is spearheading a boycott of local restaurant Houston's after accusations of racial discrimination. According to Blavity, the boycott kicked off last Saturday (Oct. 7) after actress Ernestine Johnson were denied seating at the popular eatery for having too large of a party.

When the restaurant allegedly still refused to seat them after the party offered to split into two groups, the actress spread the news on social media, inspiring the boycott.

T.I. spread the word about the protest, leading people to meet up outside of the Houston's on Saturday afternoon. "We have closed the Houston's down for the moment, indefinitely," T.I said in a video posted to Instagram showing a group of protestors chanting in front of the restaurant. "When they figure out how to treat us, they can open back up." See the post here.
