The Weeknd Put London Club on Blast for Lying

Published September 30, 2015

The Weekend is the U.K. right now, and his music was apparently playing in DSTRKT, but that doesn’t mean he was in the building. Once he called them out, the club clarified that the night featured “the sound of the the Weekend.”

DSTRKT’s Twitter blunder comes at a bad time for the night spot, which is being protested over allegations that Black club-goers were turned away for being “too dark.” A manager for DSTRKT denies the claim.
