Rikers Guard Fired for Gawking at Lil Wayne

Amelia Negron, a former prison guard at Rikers Island, was recently fired for allegedly spying at high profile inmate Lil Wayne and now she plans to sue.

According to New York’s Daily News, Negron is preparing a federal suit against New York City. She claims that union big wigs made her say that she was gawking at the New Orleans superstar, while on the job.

“I don’t even like rap,” the 33-year-old guard said.”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.”

Negron alleges that an incident in which she peeked her head into Weezy’s unit led to her termination. She claims she was just looking for a co-worker.

A spokesperson for the Correction Department told the Daily News that Negron was a probationary employee and said her firing was “entirely appropriate.”

Wayne is currently serving a one year sentence at Rikers for gun possession charges. —Elan Mancini
