T.I. Lifts Boycott On Houston's Restaurant


T.I. has reportedly ended his embargo against the restaurant Houston's, which he previously branded as racist. He launched the boycott last year after the eatery was accused of racist practices but now the emcee says they've changed their ways for the better.

"I knew people personally and professionally who had been affected," he told TMZ. "We gathered all of their stories and they nominated me to articulate the facts to the corporation for them. We were able to get all of our needs met and we were considered, as we should…I spoke on behalf of the collective to try to reach a peaceful, amicable, resolution."

The Atlanta rapper also revealed that he will be helping the restaurant's staff with diversity training going forward. He adds:

"We're all living in this world together," he added. "We have different cultures and we have to respect the differences of one another's cultures and we have to learn the differences of one another's cultures to respect them. That's where the diversity training comes in."
