Looks like Jessi Hilarious is once again catching hellish reaction from the internet for her dubious remarks, entertainer Jess Hilarious has issued an expression of apology over explanations she made in regards to four Sikh men on a plane. Amusing, genuine name Jessica Moore, posted recordings online of herself going via plane. In one of the videos, Jessi shot the Sikh men wearing headwraps, saying that she was "undermined" by their quality and when individuals started remarking that she was "insensible" for saying a wonder such as this.
"N****s know I'm never f***ing racist, but I spotted something and I put it out earlier and we just got evacuated from our plane...F***y'all, if I'm scared, I'm scared...y'all mad at me because I don't side with every other black person," she posted. She followed that up with another post shortly after being back on the plane from being evacuated saying "So how ironic is it that we boarded the same plane and don’t see those people...Why? Why were we evacuated? Y'all are going to listen to Jess one day, 'cause my news is real."
The controversy sparked a lot of backlash for Jessi, even the rapper Talib Kewli dropped his commentary on the matter, "Stop making these IG and YouTube 'celebrities' relevant y’all. Make them do the work first. If they did the work before achieving fame, they’d know better than to be so hateful in public."
The Sikh cmmty would never drag @jess_hilarious despite what she did. We offer her open arms, love, and a chance to learn. What do you say, Jess? I urge you to connect with our civil rights orgs like the @sikh_coalition or come to a Sikh gurdwara & eat w/ us. Let's build bridges.— Jo Kaur (@SikhFeminist) March 17, 2019
Yet after coming for one of the strongest cultural groups, Muslims, she preludes her apology with a statement saying "I know the situation I am in, It's had my head f***** up as it should. So I've been chocked up about it, it's really been bothering me and there’s being a picture painted of me like I'm a Xenophobe or you know I'm racist or prejudice. So I wrote this statement and I wrote this myself, sorry I didn't go hire a publicist or someone to write it for me, I don't need anyone to talking for me."
Because Moore's comments came the same weekend as the terrorist attack in New Zealand where a racist killed 50 Muslims in two attacks on mosques in Christchurch, people weren't forgiving.
What to read next from this panel.
