Jess Hilarious issues apology for her rant/profiling of Sikh passengers

Apparently not only is she is an Instagram comedian, she is on a show on Fox - I'm sure Fox was not pleased. with her antics. The circumstances of what happened on the plane are still not clear. In her apology she says she did not tell the airline she felt threatened and she did not get the men removed from the flight.


'Bear With Me, I'm Still Learning': Jess Hilarious Apologizes to Sikh and Muslim Community For Racial Profiling


“I’m not sure if these particular individuals that were on the plane are aware of my actions by now, but either way, I would love to apologize personally to them first for my insensitive and ignorant behavior,” Jess noted. “Yet, I would still like to apologize to all of you who were aware and offended by my actions.”

Jess reiterated that she didn’t get the Sikh men kicked off the plane; neither did she directly express her concerns to any airport or flight officials, leading to their removal.

“I refuse to teach, spread or be an advocate for hatred—I just want to make people laugh,” she said.
