Jess Hilarious Accused Of Racism For Calling Out Sikh Men In Turbans On Her Flight: I Felt Threatened, I’m Scared F**k Y’all! [VIDEO]
As many are still grieving and trying to process the New Zealand terrorist attack of two mosques that left 49 people dead, the feelings of anger and outrage are at an all-time high. Comedienne and actress Jess Hilarious is being slammed online after boasting about getting Sikh men in turbans removed from her flight because she felt unsafe.
Some online commenters are in a fury, accusing the Rel actress of being insensitive, following the deadly terrorist attack at two mosques that at press time has claimed the lives of 49 people. Her critics also pointed out how profiling others for their differences is the same as the racial profiling black people continuously face and that she should know better.
In the initial video (by The Neighborhood Talk), you can hear Jess laughing as the Sikh men wearing turbans exit the plane. She says,
“Look who was on our flight? Wooh, where are you going? Where are you going?”

However, later Jess posted a separate video saying she didn’t care what others though of her decision and that she didn’t see anything wrong with having the men removed. In her response video, she said:
“Don’t play with me. If I’m scared, I’m scared, f**k ya’ll. F**k how ya’ll feel. Ya’ll mad at me ‘cause I don’t side with every other black person. ‘Cause I don’t side with every other race. F**k ya’ll. I felt how I feel, I felt threatened and that was it f**k ya’ll.”
She continued, adding:
“And I’m not flying there. We were evacuated, b**ch. Why? Why? With no reason explained at all? No technical difficulties? Ya’’ll ‘gon listen to Jess with the Mess one day ‘cause my news is real. How ironic is it, that we boarded the same plane and I don’t see those people? Yeah, we’re fully boarded. Eat my a**.
On her Instagram stories, she addressed being called racist:
“One thing first, n**ggas know I’m never f**king racist. But, I spotted something I pointed out earlier and we got evacuated from our plane. We were on the plane for like an hour and did not get to pull off. Um everybody was coming at me, “oh, you racist b**ch, you b**ch, you b**ch,” because I pointed out 4 different people I saw on the plane earlier. So, when we had to evacuate with no reason at all, nobody said anything we just had to evacuate. And I don’t see the same 4 people I f**cking seen before. Apologize, b**ch”
