While on a flight, Jess Hilarious confessed that she felt “threatened” by the presence of four Sikh men boarding the same plane as her. Jess and other passengers were later evacuated from the plane and the four men were allegedly removed from the flight by the airplane.
Her rant came on the same day of the New Zealand Mosque shooting that claimed 80 lives. Jess said she wasn’t aware of the tragic incident until after she got off the plane.
Days after 50 Muslim people were murdered because of their religion in a terror attack, @jess_hilarious had 4 Sikh people kicked off a flight because she was “scared.” I am a Sikh. We must denounce this bigotry & racism. We can do better.

After getting dragged for her Islamophobic remarks, she issued a tearful apology saying she’s young and still learning.
“Look y’all I’m not racist and never have I ever been […] We have Muslims in my family however I was totally unaware of the different types of Muslim so yes I admit I’m ignorant to the facts so teach me. I got no one put off the f*****g’ plane… I didn’t even say s**t to anyone else on the f*****g plane about how I felt! Again I’m sorry to ALL Muslims… deeply sorry! But I am not a racist loves.”
