Comedian Katt Williams isnt really sorry for an anti-Mexican rant he made during a performance, he said on CNN on Saturday morning.
In fact, despite an apology attributed to him released by his publicist earlier this week, Williams said he meant what I said and said what I meant."
The controversial comments were caught in a video posted online. Williams, who was performing at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix, asked a man in the crowd if he was a Mexican.
"It appears to me y'all like it over here a lot," he said.
"Do you remember when white people used to say 'Go back to Africa,' and we'd have to tell them we don't want to? So if you love Mexico, (expletive), get the (expletive) over there!"
It then got ugly and Williams finished the argument with "We were slaves (expletive). You just work like that as landscapers."
Williams said on CNN that he was just defending his country to one man but couldn't be racist because he had so many Mexican fans.
"If I had disrespected Mexicans, I wouldn't have been able to get out of there alive," the hot-mouthed comic said.
The non-apology was a quick turnaround from a statement his publicist released earlier in the week profusely apologizing for the bad joke.
"My remarks were not meant to be offensive," the apparently false statement said. "I want to apologize if my comedy act was taken out of context."
"I sincerely appreciate my fans within the Mexican community and would never intentionally go out of my way to offend them," he added.
The rant was just part of a tough summer for the controversial comic. He was booted from a Young Jeezy concert last week for what the Arizona Republic described as a "starring role" in a brawl that broke out mid-tune.
He was also arrested in June for a standoff with a tractor driver.
poor little tink tink
WarningAchtungPeligroso: strong, extremly stupid language/
Ask a Mexican?
"Katt Williams starts raggin' on Mexicans and then once someone tried to defend their race Katt went in on him and security had to come out to keep the heckler quiet while Katt leaned in on him more. "
hahaha! Good for Katt!
Ok, someone is guilty of a race crime here ... is it the black or the mex? Who the hell is Kat Williams? Is he funnier than Slow Joe Biden?
Well worth watching. Funny. Kat was mad.
And if a white guy said all of that?
That guy is funny and passionate.
Rule one: if you go to a comedy show, especially one with Black comedians and you chose to heckle them... be prepared for some “blowback” And yes WE do tell racial and sexual jokes...sensitive folks should stay home and listen to NPR...
Everyone has to watch the entire video..there are some good gems in it.
3:38 If you love mexico so much , go back there!
6:00 manny pacquiao kicked your asses b&tch
The most awesome part was when the crowd picked up singing The National Anthem.
I love my Mexican brothers and sisters, but if you don’t love it here in American then get to steppin! I’d say the same to anyone who didn’t love this country but lives here and takes advantage of all the freedoms and prosperity we have here! And that includes West coast liberals and blue blood East coast liberals. There’s the door, don’t let it hit you in the ass on the way OUT!
Some of my fellow Texans for whom I have the utmost respect...
