Busta Rhymes throws homophobic rant at burger joint in Miami? Busta Rhymes made headlines last summer when it was said that he almost came to blows with radio personality Charlamagne Tha God backstage at the BET Awards. He is supposedly throwing tantrums at fast food places now. Busta Rhymes allegedly went off at a fast food restaurant in Miami, Florida. Cheeseburger Baby employee Stephanie Vitori recalls the alleged early morning incident with Busta and claimed that he busted into the restaurant around 5:45 in the morning intoxicated, demanding that the employees let him cut the line so that he could get his food faster. When they refused to let Busta skip up in the line, he allegedly threw a huge tantrum and hurled a homophobic slur at one employee, calling them a “f*g” and called Vitori a b*tch. Vitori tells Miami New Times that they have had their share of celebrities come to eat at their restaurant but never had an issue with any of them:

“We have had everyone from Jay-Z to Anthony Bourdain eat at Cheeseburger Baby. Never have we had a problem with a celebrity. That changed last night.”

She goes on to explain that although Busta is a celebrity, Cheeseburger Baby doesn’t show preference when it comes to their customers as they treat everyone the same regardless of social status:

“He got very upset when we wouldn’t take his order first when he was the last one to come in. We treat everyone as equals here at CBB. You can’t skip the line of ten people waiting in front of you”

Vitori says Busta wasn’t even trying to hear that though and that more went down after his alleged tantrum happened:

“He caused such a scene I was forced to call the cops on him. This is when he exited the restaurant. Top it all off, a few minutes later he called us to let us know there was no cheese on his burger, which was untrue, and that he was going to ‘come get us.”

Vitori told MNT that she has had experience dealing with drunk people but this was a situation that she had never been in before:

“I deal with drunk and disorderly people all the time. I have been doing this for 11 years, but never in my life have I felt more disrespected as a business owner or woman.”

And she further explains what allegedly happened that morning with Busta:

He came back in the restaurant and started becoming outwardly angry. He was calling our delivery driver Santiago a ‘f*g’ multiple times, and me a ‘b*tch’ and [telling] me ‘to shut the f*ck up’ because we put his salt, pepper, ketchup, and mayo — that he asked for — on the side…On the side is just how we do it. We don’t want your burger getting soggy!”

Busta’s response to the allegations?

From this tweet, it looks like he is laughing them off as complete BS:

busta rhymes


  1. Why would anyone to need to make up a lie about a flop hasbeen rapper like Busta Rhymes? I believe this story.

  2. Why is Busta out of all people acting like a diva? He hasn’t had a hit in YEARS. Even Cash Money can’t save him.

  3. He obviously has issues if he’s using homophobic slurs. Maybe he needs to come out of the closet himself.

  4. What is his problem? Does he not know to be humble and act like he has some sense when he goes out in the public? That’s the oldest rule in Hollywood. People will talk about you!

  5. Why some celebs think just cuz they’re famous it is a free ticket to cut lines,be extremely rude,act stupid and nothing will happen to them….This is so disrespectfull…and instead of that tweet, he should have apologize….SMH
