Jess Hilarious’ Comments On DaniLeigh & Her DUI Arrest
Jess Hilarious shared her comments on DaniLeigh’s arrest while co-hosting ‘The Breakfast Club’ Wednesday morning. Fellow co-host Charlamagne tha God declared DaniLeigh the “Donkey Of The Day” and explained the incident to listeners.
During Charlamagne’s monologue, Jess Hilarious chimed in with what appears to be an intended joke about the victim involved in the hit-and-run incident.
“I’m just saying, what if the person on the moped was playing DaBaby’s ‘SHAKE SUMN’ and she drove past, and it gave her flashbacks and — it could have happened.”
Later in the clip, Hilarious comments on how “flawless” the singer’s mugshot is.
Jess Hilarious Shares Concern For DaniLeigh & Her Mental Health
At the end of Charlamagne’s recap, he explained that the “moral of the story” is to avoid drinking and driving. However, Hilarious then chimed in again with her perspective.
“It’s sad. She’s probably sitting up there, and she thought y’all loved her… And y’all sitting here giving her a hard time… What about her mental health?”
Hilarious said to Charlamagne and co-host DJ Envy. Charlamagne rebutted Hilarious by asking about the singer’s child, “What about the baby?”
Despite this question, Hilarious stressed her stance regarding DaniLeigh’s mental health. However, Charlemagne explained that “mental health” isn’t an excuse for the singer’s actions. Hilarious then appeared to agree.
“No, it’s not an excuse because the guy could have died; he could’ve lost his life…”
However, before Charlamagne ends the segment, he explains that “hurt people hurt people.” Hilarious then shares one more excuse in defense of the singer.
“And she didn’t mean to hurt anyone but not an excuse at all.”
