The Game Detained, Held In Custody By Canadian Officials
There are reports that The Game angrily tweeted today to express his disgust for Canadian customs agents, who he claims will detain him for the next two weeks to process his inadmissibility. Game states, “This just in: I’m being detained in Canada for 14 days until they process my inadmissibility, then I’ll have a hearing heard by a judge,” Game tweeted. “At that point the judge will decide to either deport me or give me a sentence for violating Canada’s immigrant entry laws. [Expletive] up situation!!! But at least they let me call home, & tweet before they lock a [expletive] up!!!” The Canadian Border Services Agency said they’re not allowed to delve into details behind the detainment, but the west coast rhyme spitter didn’t have his facts straight. “While the Privacy Act prevents me from discussing the specifics of an individual case, I can tell you that (Game’s) information is not consistent with ours,” said Patrizia Giolti, a CBSA national spokesperson. “In addition, when a foreign national is detained, they must have a detention review hearing before the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) within 48 hours of their detention.” Game says that he was mislead by promoters, who assured his entrance up north, and had to give up some of his personal items. “Gotta give up my phone & property, this some straight [expletive!] Flew all the way from LA to be denied and detained?!?! WTF.” This isn’t the first time rappers have had trouble crossing the border into Canada. Last December, Cam’ron and protégé Vado expressed their disgust for the CBSA denying them access. Cam tweeted a video stating, ”We in customs, they just shut us down, see the flag? Shut me down. There goes the flag. This go the country that did it to us — Montreal, we sorry. We in Toronto customs. Sorry about that. Love y’all Montreal.”
