*Comedienne Jess Hilarious took some heat over the weekend when she posted videos of men in turbans getting on a flight and said she was afraid of them.

Critics said her posts were Islamophobic, and dragged her for filth for racial profiling the Sikh men, who were ultimately removed from the flight by Homeland Security shortly before takeoff. Why they were escorted off the plane remains unknown, but many of Jess’ followers cited her post as the reason.

The comic defended her “fear” saying she “felt threatened” by the four bearded men. She attempted to claim vindication when they were hauled off the plane.

In a follow-up video, Jess addressed critics who attacked her online and called her racist for expressing her fears on Instagram stories.

“F— y’all. I feel how I feel. I felt threatened, and that was that. F— y’all!” she said.

As the unforgiving backlash intensified, Jess was clearly feeling the pressure as she eventually swallowed her pride and issued an apology.

“I’ve been choked up about it,” said the teary-eyed “Rel” actress. Jess insists she is not racist or Islamophobic. She then read a prepared statement apologizing profusely for racially profiling the four men. She also denied her actions resulted in them being kicked off the plane.

Jess then offered to donate $15,000 to the victims of the New Zealand shooter.

Meanwhile, many of Jess’ Black followers have jumped ship after she slammed her own people for the hate she’s receiving over her comments.

Despite being bashed from various folks across color lines, Jess has addressed only the richly melanated for not having her back. Some even cited her previous anti-Black rhetoric to support their decision to abandon her.

Recently, an “ordinary” looking white man shot and killed over 45 Muslims in New Zealand. Now, America is also dealing with an increase of mass shooters, who just happens to be white men. So, shouldn’t Jess Hilarious be more afraid of boarding an airplane with white males? Anyways, whatever she said about a nonblack person isn’t our concern. Our issue is how she consistently disrespects Black Society. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Notice how there were people of all races and ethnicities disowning Jess for her comments. Yet, she chose to single out Black Americans in her aggressive response. And for those who think we’re taking her statements out of context. Understand, her “Raccoon Babble” was COMPLETELY out of context. So, that rebuttal isn’t going to work. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In Jess’s recent past, she has made several disparaging comments towards the Black Community. For example, she disrespected Black Businesses, the Black Dollar, and our protest. And we realize comedians are allowed to say whatever during comedic acts. But her disrespectful remarks weren’t made during a standup. Her opinions were public. So, we’re allowed to take them PERSONALLY. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Black Americans, when people disrespect us, we need to start canceling them instantly. We shouldn’t wait until their 4th incident or when their status declines. We need to cancel them IMMEDIATELY. Also, some Blacks are saying we need to stop criticizing her and stay on code. Stay on code? WITH HER!? This clown BEEN OFF CODE for YEARS. Her cancellation is OVERDUE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Therefore, if the Black Dollar and Black Lives doesn’t matter to Jess, then Black Support shouldn’t matter to her either. You can’t pick and choose what you want from Black Society. If she can take our support, then she should be able to take our criticism. And if she can single us out during her clap back, then we’re going to single out her content and IGNORE IT. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #JessHilarious #NewZealand #ProBlack #BlackCommunity #BYNEWSTUDIOS
