The Game has a new nemesis and this time it's not a competing rapper.

The Jesus Piece MC is at odds with the restaurant chain Houston's; claiming that their location in Pasadena, Calif. refused to serve him because of his tattoos, the rapper said in a fiery tirade on Twitter Sunday.

"NEVER eating @ Houston's restaurants as long as I live ! Denied service in Pasadena by mgr 'Vy Diep' because: I have tattoos on my arms ?!?" he wrote on the social media site.

"Its 90 degrees outside so I have a tank top on & the manager on duty 'Vy Diep' says the tattoos on my arms are threatening 2 lunch customers," he added.

The artist said it is not the first time he's had a problem with the establishment, referring to a separate incident at another Southern California location.

He fueled his complaints by creating the Twitter hashtag #DontEatAtHoustonsPasadena that generated response from many of his more than 1 million Twitter followers.

Marvin Wells, who is a manager at the Pasadena location, declined to respond to a request for comment about the rapper's accusations. According to E!, Wells said the restaurant has a strict dress code that requires all patrons to wear sleeves.

The Game instead dined at California Pizza Kitchen and took a photo with a manager on duty.

"Went 2 #CPK & they were happy to let me, my tank top & tattoos in 4 lunch.. The mgr Kong even gave me a FREE desert." he wrote.
