It isn’t so funny now is it Jess? In a since-deleted rant on Instagram, comedian Jess Hilarious said that she felt “threatened” after she saw four Sikh men wearing turbans board the same plane as her. She was immediately criticized for posting a video in which she audibly made it clear their presence on the plane made her uncomfortable. “F*ck y’all, I feel how I feel. I felt threatened and that was it. F*ck y’all,” she responded in another post and delete.
“N****s know I’m never f*cking racist, but I spotted something and I put it out earlier and we just got evacuated from our plane,” she said, while claiming there was “no reason” given for the evacuation. She later posted a video in which she said she boarded the plane again and the four men were nowhere to be seen. “So how ironic is it that we boarded the same plane and don’t see those people,” she said.
She posted a statement on her Instagram story, half-apologizing for her comments. “Look y’all I’m not racist and never have I ever been,” she claimed. “We have Muslims in my family however I was totally unaware of the different types of Muslim so yes I admit I’m ignorant to the facts so teach me. I got no one put off the f*ckin’ plane… I didn’t even say sh*t to anyone else on the f*ckin’ plane about how I felt! Again I’m sorry to ALL Muslims… deeply sorry! But I am not a racist loves.”
