Young Jack Thriller: My Daughter is No Joking Matter!
By Khalil Amani
As a father and a writer, it took all of my manly strength to hold back from blasting comedian Young Jack Thriller. Why? Because he misidentified MY DAUGHTER in one of his comedic sketches, labeling her a “prostitute” and a “bitch” and talking about her “so disrespectful!” (His signature phrase) I’ve shut my mouth and waited seven months to have my say! Now I’m having it!
Honestly! I like this guy comedian Young Jack Thriller. I’m not sure if he does “stand-up” or just joneses on famous people. Like, I’ve never heard him tell a bona fide joke. His shtick seems to be commenting on the woes of other people. But he’s 50 Cent and G-Unit’s in-house “comedian.” You might’ve seen him on VladTv.com or YouTube or Thisis50.com where 50 Cent has given him carte blanche to tell his “jokes.”

So back in May 2011 my daughter called me and informed me that her likeness (picture) was plastered all over YouTube. I immediately fired up the computer to see what all the ado was about. Young Jack Thriller was doing a comedic sketch about ex-NFL star Lawrence Taylor and the underage prostitute he supposedly paid to screwed in a hotel. Thriller and his sidekick praised Taylor and blamed the young girl for his problem. They felt the need to put the blame on the teen prostitute! The brunt of the “joke” was—“look at her! I’d f*** her too! She should be arrested for being that fine!” (Paraphrase) Straightway, they put up the alleged teen prostitute’s picture. It was my friggin’ daughter’s picture! The f***?
I jumped on the phone and called DJ Kayslay (in New York) who put a call in to Team 50 Cent & Company and was told that they would take the picture down promptly. It would be a few more days before that happened. I then emailed Young Jack Thriller and let him know about his mistaken identity—that this was my daughter he was dissing. (Having one working eye is no excuse for such a blunder!)

Young Jack Thriller replied to my email writing, “I AM SINCERELY SORRY SIR, I NEVER MEANT TO OFFEND HER, AS A COMEDIAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD MAKE THE STORY EXTREMELY FUNNY IF I USE BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AND IT DID JUST THAT, IT WAS ALL A JOKE AND NOTHING MORE, I WILL TAKE THE SKIT DOWN FROM THISIS50.COM MONDAY, AND WITH ALL DUE RESPECT I SERIOUSLY DOUBT MY COMEDY NEWS SHOW IS GONNA HURT HER CAREER AS A STRAIGHT STUNTIN MODEL…”
Whoever said my daughter was a Straight Stuntin model? In fact, she isn’t! Her pictures have appeared in Straight Stuntin Magazine, but only because I used her likeness to illustrate a blog I wrote about the disrespect video models endure in hip-hop. She’s never been in there as a featured model.
This picture of my daughter was taken when she was 28 years old and here Young Jack Thriller was calling my daughter an underage prostitute! Again, the f***? Where did they get my daughter’s picture from? Who I/D’ed this photo as Lawrence Taylor’s teen jump-off?
To say that Young Jack Thriller committed a comedic gaffe is an understatement! This was a faux pas (misstep), yea, a blunder of the Third Kind!
Young Jack Thriller and I run in the same hip-hop circles, being that I write for Straight Stuntin Magazine and he’s been featured in Straight Stuntin Magazine. His camp (50 Cent, Yayo, Lloyd Banks, etc.) are cool with my hip-hop boss, DJ Kayslay, so our paths are sure to cross one day. I ain’t no gangsta, but I hope he has a gentleman’s apology when we meet. Although he doesn’t know me or my daughter from the man-on-the-moon—that it was just “comedy”—that there was no malicious intent—we still gonna have to talk about it one day, because, at-the-end-of-the-day—for my daughter and I, it was no joking matter!
