AceShowbiz - Post Malone has received a public apology from a Perth bar after denying him entry. QT Hotel issued an apology to the "Congratulations" rapper after he was turned away when he was about to enter the luxurious rooftop bar at QT Hotel due to his offensive facial tattoos.
"At QT, we aim to welcome everyone and celebrate the uniqueness of each individual. QT has been recognised for this for many years," the statement read. "However, on Saturday night, our third-party security did not exercise the appropriate discretion and we take full responsibility for this. We sincerely apologise to the individuals affected."
Posty was not alone when he was blocked from entering the fancy bar. The 27-year-old told The West Australian that he was with his entourage when the incident happened on Saturday night, February 11. They reportedly did not meet the dress code requirements of the venue, which allegedly includes no face, neck and offensive tattoos.
"They turned me away for my tattoos... I've never really experienced anything like that," claimed the rapper/singer, who wrapped his current tour of Australia on Sunday where he opened for legendary band Red Hot Chili Peppers.
After being rejected from the QT Hotel bar, Posty traveled to the nearby 18 Knots rooftop bar where he was granted special entry on the discretion of security. While at this venue, the "Circle" hitmaker reportedly spent time mingling with fans and even buying them drinks, before relaxing with his posse.
Among Posty's facial tattoos are the words "Always Tired" under his eyes, ace of spades in the corner of his forehead, barbed wire in his hairline and a sword running down the side of his face. Ironically, his above-the-brow tattoo depicts the words "Stay Away."
Of his tattoos, Posty told GQ in 2020, "I feel like the face tattoos make me interesting to look at." He also talked about his sword tattoo in the same interview, "Swords are f**king awesome, and I've been into them since I was a little kid."
