We haven't heard anything about Eddie Griffin in quite some time. And this is NOT a great way to get back on our radars!
Eddie Griffin is being SUED by Leslie Champlin, who attended his comedy show last July. She says Eddie targeted her and her girlfriend during his routine, using homophobic language and sexually harassing them!
Witnesses say after Griffin mocked the pair and "thrusted his crotch in their faces", Champlin's partner threw her drink at the comic in the middle of his act!
Then…all hell broke loose!
Griffin proceeded to dump his water all over Ms. Champlin and her girlfriend! In the lawsuit, Champlin claims the crowd turned on them as well, with several people throwing their drinks in their direction!
Comedy club Tommy T's is also being named in the lawsuit for not stepping in to protect the two women.
We found a VERY disturbing video from the night in question (below). Hearing language like this just makes us sick!
We wouldn't usually jump to conclusions and call Eddie Griffin homophobic, but shortly after this altercation, Eddie took to his Facebook page and called Champlin and her girlfriend "dyke bitches".
Wow. For a comedian, Griffin sure doesn't have us laughing. There's nothing funny about hate, Eddie. Nothing at all!!!
