A 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.
The security guard’s suing Wayne, his label and the club for damages for assault and battery … and wants a $25,000 civil penalty tacked on to his damages for the hate crime.
