Eddie Griffin Fight

Eddie Griffin is threatening to sue TMZ over the story we broke regarding the water-bottle throwing incident at a comedy club this weekend -- problem is, Eddie clearly didn't read the story.

Griffin has released a statement on his Facebook page ... in which he falsely claims TMZ accused him of "assaulting" a woman in the audience of his show in Pleasanton, California.

He also refers to the woman as a "dyke bitch."

For those who actually read the story ... you would know Eddie was NOT the instigator. It was the woman in the crowd who threw her drink first after hearing a joke she considered to be offensive.

Eddie then retaliated by pouring his water bottle on the woman ... and then throwing the bottle at her.

Despite the facts, and footage of the incident, Griffin released the following statement:

"These TMZ bitches said I assaulted a "WOMAN" at my show in cali. I don't know what kind of eyes these mutha f**kas got but that dyke bitch threw a glass of whatever she was drinkin' in my face. All over a joke about dyke bitches!"

He continued, "Now TMZ be careful with your choice of words, I didn't ASSAULT a goddamn thing! if I had a n*gga would be locked the fuck up. As usual, media doing sensationalism instead of journalism."

"Ya'll better retract your story before i sue ya'll bitch asses for defirmation of character!…or…rather what you really do…character assassination!!! You parasitic mutha F**kas!!!..TMZ these nuts bitch!!!"

Once again, patent misuse of the English language, to suit the social libs at TMZ as they please. Can you at least leave our language intact?
A homophobe defines EG as being afraid of lesbians. I am pretty certain they do not scare him. Maybe they piss him off, maybe they digust him, maybe they make him sad. None of the above emotions are defined by the word "homophobe."

Here are some English words for you to sub in next time....

Angry
Disgusted
Sad
Slanderous

Or, wait for it, the big one...

Ad hominem attacker.

No, don't use that one-Half of your readership will fall out with sore brains if you use that type of smart people stuff.

Some people are sooooo stupid, they're not smart enough to know they shouldn't speak in public. Eddie, you're a moron. Why do people go see shows like this moron?

I liked him on Malcolm and Eddie.

I didn't read the other story, but if you're sensitive, you shouldn't watch stand-up...and maybe if you're sensitive, you shouldn't do stand-up.

He and Katt Williams should do a comedy tour. They could call it the "Reinforcing the Stereotype Tour".

How would y'all know "defirmation of character" wasn't actually an error on TMZ's part? It wouldn't be the first.

When did our Society decide that being dumber than a box of old rocks was cool?

Still trying to analyze what he was saying in the article. Not sure what language it is either.

What an eloquent retort by Mr. Griffin. In between spraying us with the latest in bottom-drawer, prison-yard profanity and misspellings, he manages to cram in the n-word so many times my eyes were bleeding. Cleary, you're an educated man, as well as a role model.
