Over the weekend, Post Malone was allegedly turned away at a bar in Perth, Australia, because his tattoos did not meet the venue dress standards.
Normally, Post can get into a lot of locations just off the strength of being who he is – no matter his tattoos or clothes – but an Australian rooftop bar is apparently not one of them.
According to a Billboard report on Monday (February 13), the popular rapper was denied entry to QT Perth over the weekend because the bar’s dress code prohibits “face, neck, and offensive tattoos.”
“They turned me away for my tattoos,” Posty told The West Australian. “I’ve never really experienced anything like that.”
However, it seems that the bouncer didn’t notice it was Post Malone, as the bar’s apology appears to say things would have gone otherwise if they did.
“At QT, we aim to welcome everyone and celebrate the uniqueness of each individual,” they wrote in a statement. “QT has been recognized for this for many years. However, on Saturday night, our third-party security did not exercise the appropriate discretion and we take full responsibility for this. We sincerely apologize to the individuals affected.”
According to the report, Post left and was welcomed with open arms at the nearby 18 Knots rooftop bar – who are probably very happy that their competitor dropped the ball.
The “Rockstar” singer was Down Under to open for Red Hot Chili Peppers on their six-date stadium tour of Australia, which wrapped on Sunday evening (February 12).
Back in October, Post added to his ever-growing face tattoo collection with the initials “DDP” in Olde English font on his forehead. DDP is reportedly the initials of the singer’s daughter who was born last May.
Post Malone made headlines last week when video from his set in Sydney, Australia went viral after he drank beer from a fan’s shoe and acted strangely onstage.
