The lesson here is: Riker’s Island is not a planetarium for you to be watching the stars, yo.
This week, Riker Island corrections officer Amelia Negron got fired for allegedly abusing her sick days and taking too much time off….but Negron thinks she really got fired because she went to say hi to a coworker who was in the same room where Lil Wayne was being held.
“The door to the area was unlocked, and so I went in to say hello, and that officer said, ‘Hey, you can’t be here. We’ve got a celeb here.’ I said, ‘Okay, no problem,’ turned around and left,” Negron said.
She said that, after the short exchange, her superiors claimed she was trying to cozy up to Weezy.
“We did nothing wrong, but we were threatened with criminal charges, transfers, suspensions,” (NYDN)
Now Negron plans to sue the Corrections Dept for harassment and discrimination. And as for explain why she couldn’t possibly have been looking to discuss the finer points of “how to lick the wrapper,” she presented an air-tight alibi….read after the jump.
“I don’t even like rap,” said Negron, 33.
“I like rock and alternative music and didn’t know much about him when they said I tried to see him. None of it’s true.” (NYDN)
ah HA! Busted….
because everyone knows that the new Lil Wayne is a rock star now! So you were trying to be his tiny dancer! (*Elle Woods bend and snap*)
