Hasan Minaj admits to embellishing stories of discrimination in his routine
He pretended an envelope filled with white powder that he received in the mail spilled on his daughter and that she had to be rushed to the hospital.
He justifies what he calls 30 percent embellishment by saying theese stories have an emotional truth.
The New Yorker has the story.

"It didn't actually happen but it could have happened" is a God-complex level mantra for people who are too arrogant and lazy to have gone to graduate school and done proper sociology experiments in controlled environments.
"I know best and will demonstrate to show you what happens." This is a cousin to Jussie Smollet behavior.

In a way it’s worse, because at least the Jussie story blew up and anybody that cares has heard what really happened, which is that Jussie lied.

I know a person exactly like this. And they see no fault in their behavior.

When a stand up comic is onstage during their routine I don't necessarily expect everything they say to be true, it's entertainment.
Now if he also talked about this in other settings, then yes he is lying and deserves to be called out.
