Wyclef Jean -- Please, No Fatties!

2/2/2008 1:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If you're thinking about getting on stage at a Wycelf concert -- be sure you're under 200 lbs.!


At a Super Bowl weekend performance at 944 Village in Scottsdale, AZ -- Wyclef asked for 30 girls to shake it with him on stage, but announced a weight limit for anyone climbing up to join him.

Wyclef finished his performance with a far-from-Jimi-Hendrix-caliber rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.

MAKES PERFECT SENSE and has nothing to do with the booty!! big gals means fewer gals on stage,!!health and safety regulations limit the weight for any stage... its not about putting paris hilton clones on stage.. but big mama's would crash the place and all that jumping up and down would probably be a disaster...so skinny bitches have to shake it not brake it with wyclef....!!! lol!!

I could only wish that one of the bigger girls would have gone up on stage and slpped his overrated face for such a discriminatory remark. Were there any signs posted at the entrance that said 'ANY WOMAN OVER 200 POUNDS IS NOT WELCOME TO PAY GOOD MONEY FOR A TICKET'??????? I don't think so...BITCH!!

sarahcheney, shut up, Being racist just makes you look stupid( and makes you a headcase too). If you have nothing substantial to say than simply shut up. Im sick of the racist cowards who would never talk trash in real life spewing there bile online. Save that for your KKK rally's.

That is just WRONG! He'll get sued for sure. There is a thing called "Weight discrimination!" Whatta pig. I am sure he will claim the weight restriction BS like #3 described, but we all know the truth...he don't like big butts!

Where's Sir Mix-a-lot when you need him?

800 pound gorilla fart    

His music is overated and really not that good so I can understand his concern . Dlckhead. He needs the extra weight limit for his overblown ego and big fat head . Dlckhead.

Obviously if you can see in the video the stage isn't that big so if 30 girls came up who were 200lbs and over it would collapse... That's 6,000 pounds on the stage not including the amps and stage equipment if all that weight was on the stage we would be having a memorial for Wyclef about now...

At the risk of losing his fans, why not have 15 real booties? I thought the black man liked it? Hell I don't know and don't even know who he is. :)

Typical rapper. Thinks he's all that and a bag of hammers, but really, he is just some guy that thinks he has talent and status, but really has nothing but an overblown ego. Idiot.

As a 210 lb mother of two who has lost 30 pounds since Oct., I take the remark as an insult to every woman in general. I f there was a weight limit for the stage, then don't ask so many to come up. It was like saying if you weigh too much don't come up and ruin my image. Sexy, thinner, beautiful girls only please. After all, in America, if ya ain't thin, ya ain't beautiful OR sexy. Uh huh...
Oh, #9------LOVE YOU BABY!
