Eddie Griffin

Gets Into Drink-Throwing Fight During His Own Show

EXCLUSIVE

071512_griffin_launchEddie Griffin responded the only way he knew how when a woman threw a drink at him during his own stand-up show ... he threw one back ... and it was all caught on video.

Police in Pleasanton, CA tell TMZ they were called to Tommy T's Comedy Club on Friday night after a fight broke out when a woman became so offended at Griffin's act ... she threw a drink at him while he was on stage.

The video obtained by TMZ begins after the woman threw the drink and Griffin can be seen retaliating, pouring his bottle of water on her and then tossing it at her.

Security had the woman removed from the venue and the club closed down for the night after the fracas.

The club did not want anyone arrested and the woman was gone by the time police got there.

Hahaha good...that's what happens in the real world :D
Hollywood feminist scripts love to show the woman throw the drink in the man's face, and show the man as a lump who sits and takes it...as if it's acceptable behavior.
Those men are actors, scripted to not do anything back to the woman.
In the real world, if you throw a drink in a man's face, you're likely to get some thrown back at you...or smacked.

i'm so glad that he threw one back. i hate women who think they can attack men without any reprucussions because of stupid stereotypes. if shes going to act like an aggressive pig she should get it right back. and ps i'm a woman.

Michael Richards didn't meltdown. He put two POS hecklers in their place.

If you go to comedy clubs, they are not church meetings, and you better be prepared to roll with the obscene, insulting punches. This woman had no business being at a comedy club, and she had no business hurling drinks. And she got what she deserved.

Griffin just did what anyone would do if face in the same situation.

You do not like the act? Then get up and go home. Don't start heckling or, worse, throw sh*t on the stage, cause, anything that happens to you afterward, you essentially asked for it.

Just want to point out: more and more, hecklers turn out to be drunk women. Again, if you can't hold your booze in public, don't go to a show and stay home., cause you know your sorry, drunken ass will get you in trouble...

hey...if i was offended...guess what ??? i'd walk out and not support anything E.G. is involved in !!! perhaps even a letter (e-mail) to the owner explaining why...throwing drinks at the performer is juvenile !!!

I'm pretty sure police in Peasanton did not respond. As there is no Peasanton, Ca. Pleasanton, Ca? Not to worry, there still is a place where peasants can live, it's next door and it's called Nevada!
