Eddie Griffin

Gets Into Drink-Throwing Fight During His Own Show

7/15/2012 8:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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 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.

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.

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!
