Katt Williams: Slap Came After The “N-Word”By: Amanda Crum - December 20, 2012
Katt Williams has been involved in a string of bizarre incidents in the past few months, including allegedly throwing a lit cigarette at a woman, starting a brawl with fans in a comedy club, assaulting his former assistant (and subsequently being sued by her for it), and beating an audience member in the head with his microphone. While he hasn’t given much explanation for those things, he’s now spoken out about an altercation at a Target store in which he allegedly slapped an employee.
“This is what the dude at Target said, “‘Your assistant is already suing you, you p**sy ass [N-word],” he said, to which he says he responded, “Did you just say the N-word in front of Katt Williams?”
The employee, identified as Forrest Liebenberg, then allegedly said, “You say it all the time.”
Williams says he warned the man about speaking to him like that, and when the warning wasn’t heeded he slapped him. Since then, Liebenberg has been fired from Target.
The incident was captured on surveillance cameras.
