Late last year, rapper Lil Wayne told ABC News' Linsey Davis that he feels no connection to the Black Lives Matter movement. He also told Skip and Shannon: Undisputed that he never dealt with racism and that it no longer exists. But a lawsuit which was filed against him on June 9 alleging assault, battery, infliction of emotional distress, and a hate crime might make him rethink his position.
The suit was filed by a White bouncer named Andrew Nunemacher. He says that on June 27, 2016 at Hyde Sunset in Hollywood, Wayne punched him so hard that he fell to the ground. Nunemacher alleges that he then threw alcohol in his face and shouted, "F*ck you, White boy!" which led him to believe that his "Caucasian ancestry and descent" was part of the reason Wayne attacked him.
This dude is looking for a huge payoff and he's going after everybody. Nunemacher is also suing club owners SBE Entertainment, Young Money Entertainment, BET Music Awards after-party promoter Made Hollywood, Inc., and Universal Music Group.
This will be no slam dunk for the supposed victim, though. Members of Wayne's entourage told TMZ that Nunemacher worked Weezy's VIP section all night and that there was a "brief altercation" between the two when the bouncer accidentally grabbed the rapper by the arm.
Let's hope that Los Angeles law enforcement doesn't decide to make an example out of Wayne. He has enough legal trouble as it is. The fact that he apparently has no beef with the criminal justice system should work in his favor. But consider this. A White boy is calling Wayne a racist. Do we not see the irony in that???
