Meek Mill will accept an apology from Cosmopolitan Hotel

The rapper previously called out the venue for being "racist as hell" after they denied him entry.

After Meek Mill threatened to sue the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas after a highly publicized incident the Philadelphia rapper alleges was racially motivated, it appears as though the two parties may have found an amicable solution to the issue.

As reported by TMZ, the hotel is planning on making a "significant public apology," during which the establishment will both apologize for threatening to arrest Meek if he stepped onto hotel grounds and accept fault in the matter. In return, Meek reportedly will accept the apology and will not file the racial discrimination and defamation lawsuit his lawyer Joe Tacopina had prepared.

As word got out that regarding the situation, during which Meek was denied entry from the venue due to their claim he had "fought with security guards" on their property, others, such as Swae Lee, Snoop Dogg and O.J. Simpson, came forward to express having had similar experiences of being treated poorly by Cosmo management and staff.

"I feel him a hundred percent," Swae Lee shared after learning of the incident with Meek. "I was just there and they're really aggressive for no reason."

While the Cosmopolitan Hotel has not yet issued a public apology at the time of this report, perhaps the venue will work with Meek Mill to prevent similar situations from happening in the future, similar to T.I.'s work assisting Houston's Restaurants with diversity training in Atlanta.

In related news, Meek's REFORM Alliance has reportedly taken its first major legislative action in its mission to transform the probation and parole system in Pennsylvania. As reported, members of the REFORM Alliance partnered with bill sponsors Rep. Jordan Harris (D-Philadelphia) and Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland) to introduce the Smart Probation & Parole Act (HB1555) to legislature for consideration in the House Judiciary Committee.

According to reports, the bill is designed to incentivize good behavior and rehabilitation for people on probation and parole, as well as reverse damaging measures that are already in place and led the state to having the third highest percentage of citizens in the probation and parole system.
