Remember when Weezy explained “no such thing as racism.”
When asked on Tuesday to expand on his thoughts, Lil Wayne told The Associated Press that one of the reasons he feels that way is because a white police officer saved his life when he was 12 years old after he accidentally shot himself in the chest.
“Yeah, he was a cop, and my life was saved by a white man. I don’t know what racism is. I know a good (expletive) named Uncle Bob, though.” Carter said.
Funny how things change.
Andrew Nunemacher says he was working the door at the Hyde Sunset on June 27, 2016, when the rapper’s entourage became angry and out of control. As he was trying to keep the front door secure, Nunemacher says Wayne punched him, knocking him to the ground, and then threw a cup of alcohol on his face and yelled “F— you, white boy!”
Nunemacher filed the suit under the state’s Unruh Civil Rights Act and the Ralph Civil Rights Act, alleging that the attack was at least partially motivated by Nunemacher’s “Caucasian ancestry and descent.” He also sued for assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
The bouncer is suing Lil Wayne, his music label, and the club for unspecified damages for assault and battery and wants an additional $25,000 civil penalty attached for the hate crime.
Wayne’s camp has denied the rapper punched the guy.
