Eddie Griffin Fight

The Homophobic,

Delusional Explanation

breaking news

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!!!"

I love the fact that he uses the word "dyke bitch" to describe a woman and then wants to sue TMZ for defamation. And, of course he didn't read the article properly - I'm sure the ignorant N can't even read.

Hey Eddie where you too drunk to read the TMZ article correctly last night? TMZ said the woman threw a drink on you first . Learn to read before you talk about suing and dude next time you go to your dentist have him/her bring that whiteness down a notch on your teeth. That much whiteness is blinding. Not a good look.

What's funny is the amount of racism in these comments. I was at the early show the night this happened and Eddie was hilarious. This woman was clearly in the wrong. As for Eddie's Facebook response, I imagine he was pretty pissed off. I'm sure none of you have ever hastily written something out of anger before, though..You're clearly all too educated and smart for that...even though you're browsing TMZ on a Monday morning.

It's not defamation of character if it is true. This is an empty threat.

This isn't a statement. It's a writing sample from a TMZ application.
