Comedian Katt Williams claims the reason he slapped a Target employee in Sacramento last month was because the employee allegedly called him the n-word.

Williams was performing last night at the Comedy Store in Hollywood, according to TMZ.

During his show he went into detail about what he claims happened when he slapped a Target employee.
