Miguel’s Leg Drop on Fan Considered For Potential Lawsuit

Miguel Jontel Pimentel, performing under the mononym Miguel, has been answering for small impulsive acts gone wrong for days now. On May 19, he accidentally leg dropped a woman while trying to hop the stage during his Billboard Music Awards performance. On May 27, his tweet about the rampant judgment of black people among their own kind spurred a whorl of controversy. This past Wednesday, he appeared as a guest on Charlie Sloth’s BBC Radio 1Xtra show to address the issues once and for all.

The Twitter storm came from the comment, “Im proud of my heritage but honestly, black people are the most judgmental people in the world. Shits sad man,” which Miguel told 1Xtra was taken out of context and requested that the transcript of his tweets be read in whole. “We’ve been conditioned, pre-programmed to hate ourselves” and “that’s why I appreciate those who choose to think and act for themselves regardless of ethnicity or culture,” it followed.

Regarding the drop kick, as a professional he had to continue the show, but he wished that public view could be balanced with knowledge of what happened off-camera when he rushed to make sure the accidental victim, Khyati Shah, was OK. Despite a post-show interview where he thought they had come to an understanding over the awkward circumstances, E! Online now reports that Shah is potentially considering a lawsuit against the singer.
