Katt Williams is in the news again, and this time it’s actually because of his comedy. During a show in Phoenix, AZ, Katt Williams was heckled on stage by a Hispanic man sitting in the audience on the front row. Now according to Huffington Post, Katt Williams went on a “racist (xenophobic) rant”, but after watching the video, I think Huffington Post may have exaggerated a lot. The heckler was out of line, and Katt Williams put him back in his place!?!
Since y’all like it over here a lot. and I’m saying, if I’m speaking out of line, let me know. But I’m saying it appears to me, y’all like it over here a lot. And let me tell you why I’m making that assumption, because I have no right to make that assumption. But understand this, this what gives me the right, and don’t you get it twisted… If y’all had California and you loved it, then you shouldn’t have given that m*thaf*cka up. You should have fought for California, since you love it..
Because you think I’m dissing Mexico and I’m defending America. Are you Mexican? Do you know where Mexico is? No this ain’t Mexico, it used to be Mexico, m*therf*cka, and now it’s Phoenix. USA! USA!
Now when I read the excerpt above, I was like uh-oh, Katt Williams is in trouble again. BUT when I watched the video, honestly, I laughed. So what do you think: Is Kat Williams racist and out of line or did you laugh, too? Be honest!!!
WARNING: Due to language (excessive cursing), this video is NSFW:
I feel like black and brown comedians get away with more racial jokes when their talking about each other, than white comedians do. Yes, it was certainly racial humor, but I don’t know if I would call it a racist rant, either.
