Much like the rest of the music industry, Drake moseyed on down to the desert for Coachella over the weekend, and opted to stay at The Madison Club—a fancy hotel for the rich and famous. Sounds fabulous, yes? No, not so much.

Champagne Papi expressed his displeasure with the club on Instagram, accusing it of racial profiling in the following caption: "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 didn't elaborate on the racial profiling in question (and yeah, he deleted his post), but it's certainly depressing to think one of the most talented artists in the industry would be a target of racism in 2017. The Madison Club has yet to comment on his claims.
