Wyclef Jean -- Shot in Haiti, Released from Hospital

3/20/2011 10:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wyclef Jean was shot in the hand yesterday just outside Port-au-Prince in Haiti.

Wyclef Jean Shot
He was treated at a local hospital and released.

A rep for the singer said the bullet just grazed his hand and he's doing well, saying, "He’s fine now. It happened late yesterday night and he was released after a couple hours.”

The shooting comes on the eve of the presidential elections.  Wyclef was a candidate but ruled ineligible because of residency requirements.

UPDATE: Wyclef says he had just left his car, when he heard gunfire. He says the next thing he noticed ... he saw blood on his shirt and shoes. He has no idea who fired shots or whether he was even the target.

This is the funniest thing I've read this morning. Dumbass goes to one of the most corrupt countries in the world, and in true Liberal minded idiocy, thinks he's going to make a difference in that septic system hell hole. Stick to making CRAP, oops I mean rap. Too bad it wasn't in his fool head.

I wonder which "local hospital"? I am familiar with them all. Wonder what kind of medical treatment he received - and if he was lucky enough to be treated by a visiting volunteer orthopaedic medical team.

What is it with all these angry black people and the senseless use of guns amid all this wanton shooting and killing?

No wonder they are to be feared by the "rest of us".

Spell Check wouldn't have caught it since crazed is a correctly spelled word...what was needed in this case was a Thesaurus Check. Or better yet, in reference to Harvey's motley crew of incompetent narcissuses, less attention to themselves and more to the job at hand.
