Katt Williams blasted on Facebook and sued by disgruntled fans
Comedian Katt Williams may find himself in court once again.
Williams and his concert promoter, Live Nation, are being sued by fans who were so disappointed by his performance, or lack of one, that they are taking him to court.
Katt’s show in Alameda County, California, ended after just ten minutes. Brian Herline is suing on behalf of everyone who went to see the show on November 16. This event is a series of shows that ended with fans confused by Williams’ behavior.
Just two days before the show Herline refers to in his class action suit, Katt performed in Oakland, California. He was booed, escorted off stage by security and then arrested after a fifteen-minute rant.
Fans are even posting their discontent live on Williams’ Facebook. “I was at the Oakland show and I want my money back!” One fan wrote, ” I can’t believe how irresponsible his manager, publicist and anyone helping organize this tour is to allow him to continue to take money from people when this tour is a complete embarrassment. We got 10 minute[s] of incoherent jibber jabber and then a drug induced tirade. Was looking so forward to this and it was crap, complete crap.”
In Pheonix, Williams went on a tirade attacking a Mexican audience member.
“You think I’m dissing Mexico and I’m defending America. Are you Mexican? Do you know where Mexico is?” he said.
“No this ain’t Mexico, it used to be Mexico, motherf**ker, and now it’s Phoenix, goddammit. USA! USA!” he added.
“Its really too bad that the fame & money has destroyed your comedy,” wrote one male fan on Katt Williams’ Facebook page. “I had a front row seat to laugh with you and instead ended up laughing at you and getting up and walking out early to go and do my own jokes over some pumpkin pie. Please clean yourself up, take a break for awhile and decide what is important to you.”
