Drake accuses country club near Coachella of racial profiling

Drake’s stay at a country club near Coachella was far from the best he’s ever had.

The rapper accused The Madison Club — a private residential community in La Quinta, Calif. — of racial profiling in a since-deleted Instagram post Sunday, a day after he made a surprise performance at the local music festival.

“The most offensive place I have ever stayed at in my life with staff who pick and choose who they are going to accommodate based on racial profiling,” Drake captioned an Instagram image of The Madison Club’s logo.

A spokesperson for the club could not immediately be reached for comment. The swanky home district, which features its own country club, is just a few miles away from the Coachella festival grounds, which are located in Indio, Calif.

Drake, 30, was not announced as an act on the Coachella lineup but made an unexpected appearance during Future’s set on Saturday, performing hits “Fake Love,” “Jumpman” and “Gyalchester.”

He did not disclose any specific incidents during his stay at The Madison Club, but that didn’t stop fans from supporting the “Best I Ever Had” artist by flooding the venue’s Yelp page with poor reviews.

“The staff here showed fake love straight up to my face,” wrote one user, quoting multiple Drake lyrics. “They gotta know I’m more than just an option. Just hold on, I’m going home.”

Another wrote, “Y’all upset Drake and his crew. You don’t mess with Drizzy and not get dragged…”
