Huff Post – Katt Williams has an explanation for some of the bizarre behavior he’s exhibited recently. The actor and comedian claims the reason he slapped Target employee Forrest Liebenberg in the face last month is because the store worker called him the “N-word,” reports TMZ. “This is what the dude at Target said, “‘Your assistant is already suing you, you p**sy ass [N-word],” he said, explaining that the insult was a reference to the lawsuit the actor’s former assistant has launched against him, suing him for $5 million. Williams says he lost it when he heard the Target worker use the N-word and asked the employee, “Did you just say the N-word in front of Katt Williams” — and Liebenberg allegedly responded, “You say it all the time.” The actor claims he told the employee to repeat the word and see what happens, which is when he slapped Liebenberg, who was fired shortly after the incident. Williams’ explanation for the incident sheds some light on the bizarre encounter; however it doesn’t explain the string of trouble the comedian has found himself in recently.
Williams was sued by his former female assistant, who alleges the comedian assaulted her at his house in October.
Williams was reportedly arrested following a fight at an Oakland club. The on Nov. 27, Williams was arrested in Sacramento after leading police on a chase while driving his three-wheel ATV. The performer had been driving on the sidewalk when police tried to pull him over, and he took off driving down the wrong side of the road.
While performing in Seattle he whipped his microphone at an audience member, hitting him in the head.
He was arrested again after a bar fight, where he allegedly threatened the bar’s manager with a pool cue, and then followed a family to the parking lot and threw a cigarette at a woman, hitting her in the eye.
Williams was kicked out of a hotel in Seattle , and he announced he was retiring from stand-up comedy, and two days later decided it was time to un-retire.
After all that, a Seattle judge issued two warrants after Williams failed to show up to court.
MSN – Katt William’s string of police disturbances continued Friday in West Hollywood, Calif., where he was detained for a rumored kafuffle in a Subway franchise. Williams was in the sandwich shop and tour manager Suge Knight was enjoying a mani/pedi in a nearby salon when police arrived with citations for outstanding traffic warrants for Knight. Police say they were responding to reports of a disturbance (though Subway employees say they saw nothing of the kind). Williams says the police attention was racially motivated, but perhaps the authorities are merely keeping an eye on him after such incidents as leading Sacramento police on a chase across city sidewalks while riding a three-wheel motorcycle after unrepentantly slapping a Target employee.
Damn. How far has Katt Williams fallen? At one point he was my favorite comedian. Number 1 who I wanted to go see perform. He killed me. Now he’s gone off the looney bin like Dave Chappelle, just retiring and un-retiring within days. Must’ve come in contact with something a little extra in his marijuana. Mustn’t have smoked that regular weed. Looks like Snoop laced his shit with that killer, triller, salmonella.
