According to The Blast, the casino is taking the matter "very seriously", and is "actively investigating" the rapper's claims. In a written statement, Parq Vancouver president Joe Brunini apologized for Drake's experience. "We categorically stand against racism of any kind".

"Mr champagne don't fw u", one commenter wrote, while a particularly enthusiastic Drake fan added: "Don't EVER disrespect the BIGGEST man in entertainment".

The profiling accusations have prompted a backlash on social media against the casino.
