Lil Wayne has been sued by a security guard who claims the rapper violently punched him in the face, and it’s a hate crime against white people.
In a lawsuit reported by TMZ, the California man claims he was working the front door at Hyde nightclub on the Sunset Strip in June 2016 when Weezy and his crew showed up for a BET Music Awards after-party and started acting belligerent.
According to the docs … the guard felt physically threatened but was trying to do his job controlling entry into the club when the rapper punched him with a closed fist and knocked him to the ground
The man claims Lil Wayne then threw a glass filled with alcohol in his face and yelled, “F*** you white boy!” … which he claims makes it a hate crime.
Wayne’s camp has denied the rapper punched the guy, claiming that the security guard was working Wayne’s VIP section, not the door.
Lil Wayne’s team acknowledged that brief altercation occurred when the man grabbed Wayne by the arm, not realizing who he was. That, his team says, was it. In fact, Wayne’s camp said the security guard even apologized for the incident.
The man claims his jaw was disclocated and his shoulder injured due to Weezy and his team attacking him at the door. So he is suing not only Wayne, but also his record label and Hyde for the alleged assault and battery.
He’s also asking for $25,000 for being the victim of a hate crime.
