Comedian Jess Hilarious has taken to social media to defend herself against accusations of racism after posting on Instagram that she was “nervous” because she saw four men in turbans on her flight. In a social media post that has since been deleted, Jess posted about four Sikh men on her flight, whom she says were later removed from the plane. She also said that entire flight was “evacuated” and when she returned, the men were nowhere to be found. 

Jess said in a video, “I’m never f***ing racist, but I spotted something and I put it out earlier and we just got evacuated from our plane.” In another deleted post, she said, “MAN F**K YALL IM NOT PERFECT!!! And I was scared PERIOD!! Not apologizing anymore BYE.” 

On Sunday morning (March 17th), Jess defended herself against accusations of racism and said, “Look yall, I’m not racist and never have I 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.” She continued, “I got no one put off the f**kin’ plane … I didn’t even say s**t to anyone ELSE on the f**kin plane about how I felt! Again, I’m sorry to all Muslims … deeply sorry. But I am not a racist loves.”
