A White security guard has filed a civil rights lawsuit against Lil Wayne after the rapper allegedly attacked him outside of a Hollywood nightclub last year — an attack the accuser alleges was racially motivated.
Andrew Nunemacher claims he was working the door at the Hyde Sunset on June 27, 2016, for a BET Music Awards after-party when Weezy’s entourage arrived and things quickly went south. As he was trying to keep the front door secure, Nunemacher says Wayne punched him with a closed fist, knocking him to the ground. But that’s not it. Upon hitting the ground, Nunemacher says the 34-year-old threw a cup of alcohol on his face and yelled “F— you, white boy!” TMZ reports.
Nunemacher, who is also suing for assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, filed the motion under the state’s Unruh Civil Rights Act and the Ralph Civil Rights Act, alleging that the attack was at least partially motivated by his “Caucasian ancestry and descent,” Variety reports.
Also on the hook are SBE Entertainment, which owns the club; Young Money Entertainment, which is Lil Wayne’s record label; Made Hollywood Inc., which promoted the big BET Music Awards after-party where the assault took place; as well as Universal Music Group.
Nunemacher is asking that the “The Block is Hot” recording artist pay him in damages to the tune of $25K for the alleged hate crime. Meanwhile, the rapper’s camp has denied sucker punching Nunemacher, TMZ reports.
In case you missed it, just a few weeks back, Lil Wayne appeared to be in good spirits when he reunited with his Young Money family, Nicki Minaj and Drake at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.
