Dear Mexico: Katt Williams Is Sorry

| Filed under: Icky Icky Poo

At least he says he is, anyway!

Katt Williams is the latest comedian to come under fire for lashing out a group of people, after going on a racial tirade directed at Mexicans during a show in Phoenix over the weekend!

He says:

"My remarks were not meant to be offensive. I want to apologize if my comedy act was taken out of context. I sincerely appreciate my fans within the Mexican community and would never intentionally go out of my way to offend them."

Well, you seemed to do just that, Sir! FOR OVER SEVEN MINUTES!

We're not saying that the man in the audience isn't also at fault to a degree, we just sincerely hope that the next time a situation like that arises, you can control yourself and not let your anger get the best of you!

There's absolutely NOTHING funny about that 'comedy act,' so we think it's time to get some new material!

Ch-ch-check out the tirade again (above)!

What do U think?? Do U accept his apology??

    Used to think he was funny & cool … now I just think he's an arrogant douche bag with a serious drug/alcohol problem of some sort.



  2. 2

    I thought it was hysterical. It's comedy, he owes no apology.



  3. 3

    I think he made some valid points.

    Do I accept his apology?? Hell MF'n no!! He acted like such an ignorant bitch that I will never again go to one of his shows or watch him on T.V. The good book says "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks" so now I know how he feels about me and my people. What a douche!! I know for a fact that the "vato" wasn't saying "Viva Mexico and F*ck the USA", he was getting offended because he felt his race was being attacked. That is exactly how I felt. Of course he's apologizing, because we are no longer the minority, we are the majority!! Ha ha Katt used to be my favorite comedian but now I won't even cut his grass!! And I have a degree in business… You messed up Katt. BTW, brown ass looks good on your mouth !!!!!!

    OMG vicky… I wish I could understand what the hell you are trying to say!

    Sick and tired of listening to people complain about comedians. No apologies, please.

    GET THE FUCK OVER IT PEOPLE!

    Katt was right on. No need for apology.
    .
    It's not as if he pooped on him.



  10. 10

    This is awful, he needs to be sue for this… I don;t see what valid points he has and the fact that people are cheering at his statements is even worst

    GET THE FUCK OVER IT PEOPLE! Its a fucking act. he makes fun of all people. you dont see white people getting upset everytime someone makes fun of us—which a lot of people do by the way. this pc bullshit is getting out of control. sit back, shut up and just relax. its just for fun. stop being so serious about comedy. fuck. i'm so sick of all these people up in arms about stupid shit. he is an equal opportunity offender.



  12. 12

    Did any of you guys actually see the clip!?! At what point does he actually talk shit about Mexicans for the sake of talking shit about Mexicans?? His whole rant revolved around being appreciative and proud of the country YOU CHOOSE to escape or immigrate to. Fucking hell people! I don't really even care for the guy much (Kevin Hart FTW), but I don't find myself disagreeing with him either nor did I see at as being racist. Don't go to comedy show and start shit…simple as that. Don't start shit and there wont be shit!



  13. 13

    NO Reason at all to say you are SORRY!!! HE IS JUST SAYING WHAT ALOT OF PEOPLE THINK. ALSO IS ENGLISH STILL THE PRIMARY LANGUAGE OF THIS COUNTRY?

    Does he realize there are a LOT of Mexicans in Arizona? I'm sure he insulted many more in that buiding. He was a total douche bag. Many Mex-American identify themselves as Mexicans and for him to compare Mexicans to slaves is down right wrong. katt williams FTP! Looked more like a lil chihuahua… all bark with no bite!



  15. 15

    He responded appropriately to an ignorant vato heckler.
    .
    Ignorant vatos, especially when heckling, should be dealt with in a disparaging and ridiculing fashion.
    .
    Hecklers are bullies and are only trying humiliate someone that is doing a job that the heckler would love to do, but is too cowardly to attempt and pay the price.
    .
    I think Katt should have delivered this guy to you, Mario. You could have pooped on him.



  16. 16

    Oh come one, comedians make fun of EVERYTHING. It's stupid to nitpick the things you think he should and shouldn't make fun of. If that was the case then there would be no comedians because someone will always be offended by whatever they say. How about people just get over it?



  17. 17

    Re: Enjo

    Maybe that is the problem. If you want to be Mexican, go to Mexico. If you want to be an American of Mexican descent, then be an American.



  18. 18

    Re: anon83 – You are 100% right and made one of the most logical comments.



  19. 19

    Honestly, I don't think when he said was offensive at all. He was not talking about Mexican-Americans, and he made that clear. He was talking about Mexicans, who come to America but still have allegiance to Mexico. Was what he said offensive? Yeah, probably. Was what he said true? Definitely. The guy shouldn't have come to his comedy show and then started talking shit with his friends. Has he not seen what always happens to people who do things like he did. Sit down and shut up, you wouldn't stand up in the middle of a play to critique the dialogue, so don't do it at this live setting either.



  20. 20

    Re: anon83 – are you stupid or just trying to justify your prejudice? it is insulting not only to Mexicans but Mexican Americans and other immigrants who are in this country…Mexicans arent the only ones proud of their roots, Italians, germans, other Latinos…i could go on and on…as for KatRISHA, HELL NO IT IS NOT ACCEPTED…and for you fools saying its comedy blah blah # 1, IT IS NOT comedy when you engage with racial bigotry with an AUDIENCE member and its not comedy when you try to demean ppl with support of ppl in your audience, what entertainer engages with ppl instead of doing their show? that is NOT comedy



  21. 21

    Your racist now when you are PRO-American now!! I had a fight at dinner one night with a mexicant who got offended when I talked pro american and didnt like when I said; I didnt like what was going on in Texas. Well I am Racist and almost drew fist over it. The table was mad at me and I told them ALL to go f themselves because this Country is NOT defending its self on these matters…. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!



  22. 22

    perez: "There's absolutely NOTHING funny about that 'comedy act,' so we think it's time to get some new material!
    "
    Hey Pot! There's NOTHING funny about scat either. You're offensive every day and you don't give a f""k about that.



  23. 23

    Re: Vicky´!!!SEMICOLON!!!s – omg! I dont know you, but I want whatever you are having.



  24. 24

    So funny… Kat Williams craps on so many different races, black folks included, so I don't understand the point of getting so offended. It's like %90 of the stuff he says can be taken as offensive. He clowns on white folks, black folks, asian folks, and surprise surprise while he was in a larger-hispanic area he happened to say some things about hispanics that didn't even really seem very racist (what was the racist part? when he said if you love mexico so much to go back?) … Anyway, typical to make a big fuss over what seemed pretty tame to me. maybe I've just seen enough of his other stand-up routines to not be fazed.



  25. 25

    it was all gd till he said that work like slave ish ……….smh……. bet he felt big and TALL that moment…..i agree whoever has more pride for another country go back there then though!



  26. 26

    Not defending these Comedians…people need to remember or understand they are often freestyling with the improv. One night they are hip, funny and cool and the next night-or venue- they are racist, pig dogs.
    Richard Pyror's genuis was he figured out Lenny Bruce got too serious about it and managed to keep it funny without being too offensive. Eddie Murphy got to see RP go down in flames literally. So KW has a night everyone laughs when when he cracks on Whites, Blacks, Crackers,etc.,.
    These Comedians make $$$ when they get people laughing…they don't when they have to apologize. Just remember- it is Entertainment, not Seal team 6 inside Obama's Compound.



  27. 27

    er, Bin Laden's Compound…



  28. 28

    Are you kidding me you moron? He wasn't insulting mexican or mexican americans.. he was insulting people who live in America and show allegiance to mexico.



  29. 29

    Perez- you are not even Mexican (or Mexican-American) so do not pretend to feel offended on behalf of those of us who ARE of Mexican decent. Katt is right, you can be proud of your heritage and your roots, but one should always be proud to be American. We live in the greatest country on earth, and suddenly Katt needs to apologize for being patriotic? THAT is outrageous, not his comments.



  30. 30

    I do not accept his apology, because at that time he was not being a comedian he was being himself. I totally understand that comedians talk about every ethnicity but he took it to another level. I will never ever attend any of his shows or give him any ratings on TV! FUCK HIM!!!



  31. 31

    I have Kat's back.
    That sh!t was funny as hell.



  32. 32

    I think it's ridiculous that anyone is upset over what Katt says. He's a C-O-M-E-D-I-A-N!!! FOR GOODNESS SAKE IT WAS F***ING FUNNY!!!!!!!! There were MEXICANS standing up and HIGH FIVING Katt!!! WTF do you say to THAT Mario? Why don't you talk to them? It's cool… anyone getting CLOWNED ON WITH THE TRUTH always gets defensive and cries foul. BS Shi* was funny! Go KATT WILLIAMS!!! Ya'll need to take a puffffffffffff! But for now, here's a contact. *blows smoke*



  33. 33

    I felt he wasnt trying to be funny but cruel. He looked fucken coked out. He felt bad ass becuase he had his guards surrounding dude.



  34. 34

    I'm a Mexican-American, and I think Kat did NOTHING wrong!! He actually made very good points. My parents came to this country to have a better life, so my allegiance is to the USA. While I love and practice my Mexican culture and values, I would never want to live in Mexico. It'd be spitting on the sacrifices that my mom made to get us here. I agree with Kat, that if that guy loves Mexico sooo much, he should move there!



  35. 35

    It's his comedic style. If you don't like it, then don't go to the show. Katt has included white people in his jokes and (gasp), black people as well. It just happens that this year, his comedy includes Mexicans. Where was everyone's outrage when he was making jokes on the blacks or whites? Anyway, I guess it all goes back to the whole, "You can't make fun of people except your own race." And if you took a look at the people he hangs with, yes, he may be a fool at times, but he has nothing against Mexicans.



  36. 36

    First off I'm Mexican. Second, I was at this show. I'm all about jokes and having a good time; even when the jokes are directed about my own ethnicity, it's just all in good fun. However, I was incredibly offended by his "demeanor", his remarks were ignorant jokes that went too far but the way they were delivered… it was personal. I was there and felt the emotion of the crowd and him. He took it to another level. After re-watching, it seems like it wasn't all that bad but I still remember the feeling it gave me and I will NEVER support this particular performer again. Especially since he opened the show by saying how much he loved his "latino" friends in Phoenix and commented on all the crazy things going on in AZ in regards to immigration; then he was giving Mexicans props, that's how the guy in the crowd got all "pumped" up; then the performer twisted it. Instead of just recognizing that the drunk guy was proud of his culture/race/whatever, he turned it in the opposite direction. It just wasn't necessary. During this rant people were fighting in the crowds; I saw at least two fights, and half of the audience walked out.

    Everyone has their own opinions but if you weren't there you'll never know how it was in the moment.



  37. 37

    I read all of the comments posted regarding this so called comedy.This is not comedy I did not see one thing that was funny about this. A comedian is someone that yes bashes on a person from either there ethnic background, weight, looks etc…. and trust me in no way did I see anything funny about this all I saw was a little midget running his mouth and talking smack…. I am mexican american and I can take a comedian talking smack about us mexicans for some good comedy… to me this was just a sorry ass comedian that ran out of good jokes and decided to talk smack… From what I heard did I not hear one joke or a "im just messing with you man" this seemed that he was upset and wanted for us to hear what he thought of us mexicans… I don't think the apology came from him but from his people his apology means shit… he just lost the mexican community as his fans… He is a nobody dam midget…..



  38. 38

    Re: ElJaysQueen – I totally agree with you!!! I can talk good comedy jokes towards us mexicans.. I was not at the show but I saw the video and No bueno…



  39. 39

    #1) There are way to many Mexicans in Arizona who think they are still living in Mexico. They trash Arizona's beliefs and cultures trying to instill there own. Kat was just reminding the Mexicans where they are At.

    #2)This is SELF EXPLANATORY. I don't care what race you are or where you are from…. People came to this Country "America" for a better life. There is nothing wrong with bringing cultural beliefs with you, but when you are in America you need to BE AMERICAN! You don't come to this Country than demand that we cater to you… And this is Mainly directed at MEXICANS…. Because they are the only race that is constantly complaining about having things in Spanish, and becoming citizens illegally. Every other Race who came to this Country adapts to America. WHY? Because they know how much there Country Sucks….. So to all you Mexicans who left Mexico because it sucked….. Stop trying to turn AMERICA into Mexico, or else it's going to Suck just as much….

    #3)If you do love Mexico So much, than seriously go back there. Why did you come to America in the first place? I guaruntee you came to America because it was Better than Mexico…. So adapt to our culture, we sure as hell don't want to Adapt to yours, if we did, than we would all be heading to Mexico….



  40. 40

    I understand hecklers can be downright annoying to comedians but Katt could've handled it better. You see I understand one funny sarcastic joke followed by security get this idiot out please. That didn't happen…instead Katt thought it would be best to use ignorant hate jokes for 7 minutes straight. This was not part of the show or comedy people. It was disgusting and he knows it. Both of them look stupid but Katt made himself look way worse by parading his trashy jokes. To those who didn't like it? Well don't go to his shows or buy anything related to him. To those that do? Well keep going and you're free to do whatever you like.

    Just gotta say F U katt ur nothing but a ugly f'en troll. Fact is California was Mexico and Mexicans were here way before the white people came and started bring all the slaves. So for those who say we need to adapt and be Americans and you dont' want our culture F/off! We are very proud to be here and damn proud of where we came from. You had to cross the whole ocean to get here while we were already here!

    OMG, I'm a Mexican and I sincerely think that his an arrogant, maybe he is proud of his country but does not give a reason to sppeak like that to a person that is paying to see a show not to recieve insults.
    If it wasnt for al that people that paid for a ticket he wouldnt have a job, so he should be more respectful.



  43. 43

    Having an act and having jokes making fun of other races, I can understand. Mexicans do it about it themselves all the time too. However, you can clearly see how this was not part of his act, he was angry and wanted to be hurtful lashing out. That was not part of his comedy act, it wasn't comedy. I won't even get started on the horrible, wrong, and racists comments he made, because there are too many. But people that are saying that he was right because it was just comedy, it is obvious that was not what he was doing.



  44. 44

    NOPE. Career DEAD.



  45. 45

    He's a comedian… one that is known for poking jabs at every ethnic group…. If anything I would like him to apologize for apologizing… everyone needs to CTFO… its not that big a deal considering he was clearly in an argument with a heckler…. I'm more bothered that people are jumping down his throat when we should be getting together and figuring out what the hell our government is doing… Its Katt's job to be childish on stage because clearly, a good number of people in the audience thoroughly enjoyed what was happening…however, the guy in the audience was just adding fuel to the flames by shouting stuff back… maybe he should apologize for wasting the rest of the audience's time with his garbage?

    I am not going to comment on the entire performance nor how did it affect me or people i know. I know i might not be the AMERICAN as many of you have established in the comments..but come on you are using a computer,learn how to spell (or hit spell-check). There is a difference between 'there' and 'their'. Also we are all entitled to an opinion and lets just not get out of hand when it comes to cultural values and beliefs. I thought american cultures and values were a recollection of the values all around the world.



  47. 47

    a black person being rude and inappropriate….. THAT'S weird…… all he's shown in the clip is that the majority of the african american race (because that's who i saw cheering and hi-fiving him) has a long ways to go before they become civilized. thank God i only hang out with the cultured and intelligent ones



  48. 48

    Now I've seen it all, a black man who has forgotten everything his people have gone through, so much so that he's has turned into a white Supremacist redneck. He should be ashamed of himself. Comedy? No way. Stupidity. For sure.

  49. @v@ says – reply to this


    49

    He's giving a bit of a mea culpa in case some were offended by his ACT. He's showing some effort and concern about his schtick offending his fans. Edgy comedy can be really rough depending on where you came from. Giving him a pass because he cared enough to do this.



  50. 50

    Everything he said was ABSOLUTELY true.



  51. 51

    I'm sad he apologized. He should stand up for what he believes. People who hate America so much that they can't even bother to learn the language, continue to breed like it's going out of style within it and then abuse the American government by not following the law to become a citizen (all the while not paying taxes) AND they love their country so much more?.. should absolutely go back. Sneaking in like roaches into a motel. (YOU know who they are, I'm not pointing out ANY group in-particular) Not to mention, yes, this is comedy. Get over it. Comedians make fun of everyone, I don't see anyone ever standing up for fat people, or white people when they get made fun of. But heaven forbid anyone make fun of a "minority" race or Gay people. I have a friend from every group you can possibly think of in my circle of friends, and we make fun of each other all the time. Everyone needs to stop being so sensitive, and hypocritical.

    You can immediately tell that he was not trying to be funny. His personal thoughts and anger took over. Therefore, the apology is necessary since his fan base consists of Mexican/Mexican-Americans.

    It is obvious that many of you believe anything that "politicians" and "anti-immigrant groups" tell you. Instead of doing your own research.. you jump into conclusions. If you did actually read and stopped watching Fox News, you would know about the complexity of going back to Mexico. Do your own research and you see why it isn't so easy as you claim it be.

    Re: Erinbear33 – "Sneaking in like roaches into a motel".. Wow… is this what it takes to be "American!" .. What many of you naive people lack is an education. If you had one.. you would understand that many of America's decisions created this problem. We created it and know we want a scapegoat.. that being immigrants.

    54

    Re: thejs28 – This one is for you.

    #1) If you think they are actually trying to install their own cultures (which i disagree)and trash "Arizona's" beliefs.. .by the way, what are they??… then this simply reminds me of a time when white settlers came to "America" and installed their own beliefs.. (with violence of course).
    #2 What is being an "American." It definitely isn't being prideful because half of so called "Americans" are not. Adapting to this country. How do you do that?? Their is not American Culture!!!!! There is not set definition!! This country is culturally diverse and that is what makes it great!!! What does not is people like you who create ant anti-immigrant sentiment in this country without doing your own research and studies.



  55. 55

    SFL, I'm glad you can read me right. I said sneaking in like roaches. Truth hurts. We might have created this problem, but now it needs a solution. Too bad for you if you can't handle it.
