Timberlake in Racist Slur Accusation
Justin Timberlake is being sued for $9.6 million by his former tour manager - who has accused the singer of racial abuse. Ibrahim Duarte claims Justin - along with other members of his former band 'N Sync - told him and other black employees, "You ni**ers ain't worth s**t". The irate employee fumes, "After four years of building them into one of the hottest bands in the world, they treated me less than human. The popularity and money went to their heads and their true feelings about having a black front man became apparent. I endured their constant racial slurs, jokes and belittling comments to make it work. But they just threw me to the curb like yesterday's trash." Band member Lance Bass allegedly insisted Duarte travel in a separate tour bus because he was ashamed of having a black tour manager, and JC Chasez would shout, "You black guys always f**k up". When Darrin Henson, the group's black choreographer, collected an award, the band called him "the dark member of 'N Sync". Duarte also claims black sound engineer Dale Ramsey had to endure jokes about his complexion, and security guard Kenneth Hunter was teased "in a racially offensive manner" - before both were dismissed. The aggrieved tour manager claims he was sacked after the group's No Strings Attached tour in 2000 because 'N Sync were ashamed of having a black "front man" - and was replaced by a white man with "significantly less experience". Duarte adds, "In my 25 years in this industry, I've never been treated like this by any other artist."
Seems like Justin thinks that acting like if you're black is cool, but not actually "being" black.
Perhaps the guy is just aggravated that he can't get no pu$$y from Britney anymore, and he has to take out his anger with all the black fellows who work with him.
I find this extremely hard to believe...not in defence of the NSYNC guys, but just that humans are still this ignorant. If it's true, and I pray it's not, then may Beezlebub put a devil aside for those guys.
BOY BAND LOL!!!
they are just boys in a band (that is not theirs)
all they do is prance along on stage and let an unknown and unheard band do all the artistical work.
pop music has shallow talent, singers only make 10% of the whole shit,
real musician are asked to play for them earning lots of money to get unheard and keep there names out of the limelights,
Pop music. . . yes it is a devils invention far more addictive and greater than alcohol,
with a legal consuming law of
**as soon as people are born** its nothing but pop!
the plot thickens..since this is suit #2
The claims of racism could be undermined by a previous lawsuit Duarte filed against 'NSYNC in June of last year seeking approximately $155,000, which he said was still owed to him by the group for tour-manager duties. That suit was handled by a different attorney, Robert Greener, who said Wednesday (December 17) that he was no longer involved in that litigation. No allegations of racism were alluded to in that suit, according to reports then.
