Rapper Yung Bleu was racially profiled on Monday while trying to buy a trailer in Georgia.
The “You’re Mines Still” star shared a video to his Instagram, which showed deputies with the Gainesville, Georgia police department profiling the 27-year-old and his entourage as they tried to purchase the vehicle from Absolute Trailers. However, Bleu and his crew never made it into the store before the owner, a white man, called the police to report that he suspected the entourage of fraud.
“THESE GAINESVILLE, GA POLICE OFFICERS are racially profiling us!” Bleu captioned the video. "They approached me and my team for absolutely nothing, trying to buy a trailer for my tour at (Absolute Trailers). The owner was an old white guy who called the police talking about the suspect fraud!”
Bleu tried to leave the trailer shop but was met by officers waiting for him on the highway. After pulling him over for an “obstructed” tag, he was arrested for having a suspended license.
Bleu has since posted bail. It remains unclear why the store owner felt that Bleu and his team were trying to defraud him.
