Busta Rhymes: Not in check.
When you run a late-night burger joint on South Beach, you can expect the occasional drunken-celebrity encounter. But Stephanie Vitori, owner of Cheeseburger Baby, tells New Times she's never experienced anything as bad as what Busta Rhymes pulled early this morning.

According to Vitori, Busta busted into the restaurant close to 6 a.m. and demanded to cut the line to get his food faster. When the restaurant refused, he threw a tantrum, calling one employee a "fag" and Vitori a "bitch," and later threatening to "come get [them]."

No word on whether he threatened to tear da roof off.

"We have had everyone from Jay-Z to Anthony Bourdain eat at Cheeseburger Baby," Vitori says. "Never have we had a problem with a celebrity. That changed last night."

When Busta rolled into Cheeseburger Baby, Vitori says, it was 5:45 a.m., a time that's typically busy for the restaurant, as servers are slinging burgers to partiers on their way home from clubs. Busta wanted to be served first, and the restaurant refused.

"He got very upset when we wouldn't take his order first when he was the last one to come in. We treat everyone as equals here at CBB. You can't skip the line of ten people waiting in front of you," Vitori explains.

Instead, he returned to his car to wait for his order. But after his food was delivered to him in the car, Vitori says, "He came back in the restaurant and started becoming outwardly angry. He was calling our delivery driver Santiago a 'fag' multiple times, and me a 'bitch' and [telling] me 'to shut the fuck up' because we put his salt, pepper, ketchup, and mayo -- that he asked for -- on the side.

"On the side is just how we do it," she explains. "We don't want your burger getting soggy!"

He's just a down-low NAPA.

They should have kicked his black butt out of there when he first began to chimp out.

Homophobic-ass people. It’s so sad how ignorant people try to justify the word “faggot”. I don’t give a shit what other definition you try to give that word, you know damn well “faggot” has always been primarily used as a derogatory gay slur. It’s clear that when most people hear that word, they automatically associate it with “gayness”. Busta needs to get his ass out of Miami if he feels that way about gays, 'cause they pretty much run South Beach

I have a hard time believing that Kanye West didn't cut in line. He probably also said he would let Vitori finish, but that In-N-Out Burger has some of the best burgers of all time!

Faggot didn’t mean gay when I was a kid, you called somebody a faggot because they were.. being a faggot. I would never call a gay guy a faggot, unless he was being a faggot, but not because he’s gay. Like, if I saw two guys blowing each other, I don’t know why I’m watching them do it... I don’t know, I stumbled upon a couple of fellas blowing one another on their respective penesia--That's plural for penis that invented today. I would be respectful to them, "Hello, gentlemen." But if one of them took the dick out of his mouth and started acting all faggy and saying annoying faggy things, "You know, people from Phoenix are Phonecians" or something like that. I’d be like, "Hey, shut up, faggot.
