Katt Williams Explains Why He Slapped Target Employee
Says he was called the N-word
Guess that explains it. Actor and comedian Katt Williams, whose behavior of late has been questionable to say the least, is offering an explanation for at least one incident he was involved in: slapping a Target employee. During a performance at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles, Williams told the audience that he hit the man for referring to him as a n****r.
Last month, Williams was caught on video slapping an employee of a Sacramento, Calif., Target, into which he ran while fleeing police on a three-wheeled motorbike. Soon after that he announced his retirement from standup, but changed his mind about that days later.
"This is what the dude at Target said, 'Your assistant is already suing you, you p***y a** n****r,’" Williams told his audience. Williams said he then confronted the man, who allegedly responded, “You say it all the time.” That's when Williams said he dared the man to say it again and when he did, Williams slapped him.
Hmmm. Well, in any case, Williams still faces an assault rap as a result of the Nov. 27 incident, which was among a slew of strange behavior on the part of the star. Williams also is being sued by his former assistant for $5 million after allegedly assaulting her at his home. (Huffington Post)
