A White bouncer in Hollywood is suing Lil Wayne for a 2016 incident where he says he was kicked, spat on and called “white boy.”
A white bouncer filed a civil rights lawsuit Friday against rapper Lil Wayne, alleging that an attack outside a Hollywood nightclub last year was racially motivated.
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.
If Wayne is actually convicted of a hate crime, he will have to serve at least one year in prison under California law.
