Another day, another Katt Wiliams story, and this time the enigmatic comedian explains one of the infamous moments of his current public meltdown. According to Williams, the Target employee that he pimp slapped called him the N-word.
Katt Williams was performing last night at the Comedy Store in Hollywood when he recounted what went down, TMZ reports. Williams, aka A Pimp Named Slickback, showed the employee, who was fired, the hand of God back on November 25th in Sacramento.Allegedly, the employee told Williams, “Your assistant is already suing you, you pu–y A$$ ni–er.”
Katt said he flipped when he heard the slur and asked the employee, “Did you just say the n-word in front of Katt Williams?” — to which the employee answered, “You say it all the time.”
Katt says he shot back, “Say it again and see what happens” — and that’s when he knocked the guy upside the head.
Katt then compared his racism plight to that of Dave Chappelle, explaining, “That’s the same Shyte that drove [Chappelle] out of the f***ing business.”
Two things worth noting here. The fact that Katt referred to himself in the third person while confronting the Target employee is truly comical. Two, Chappelle did flip out, leave his hit show and dipped to Africa, but he wasn’t leading police on chases and allegedly getting into bar fights beforehand.
Nevertheless, Hip-Hop Wired caught up with Katt Williams at the recent Cali Christmas concert and the comedian said he don’t care what people think of him. “I been arrested 36 times in five years, but I never been in court, you figure it out,” he told HHW. “I don’t care what they say. What they say, they love me so how could I give a f**k what they say otherwise?”
