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 can say firsthand that Eddie truly is a douchebag...ran into him in Vegas and he bitches and complains all the time just like some of his comedy...that is really his personality a constant whiner about everything and anything..and I won't even get onto his loser entourage that treats him like royalty and stares down everyone like pitbulls...stop being ghetto and get into a big box office film again instead of moonlighting in vegas and being a ********

Team TMZ !! Sorry Eddie. Ya shoulda read the original story posted by the staff !!

Being that TMZ is run by a lawyer (Hey Harvey), fairly certain they're not gonna post something they do not stand behind.

You're just a bunch of Hot Air at this point Eddie !

Loossinggggg !!

TNB. Another colored loser that can't spell, can't speak proper English, and propagates the use of ****** while complaining if someone calls it one. You can take the coloreds out of the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto out of the coloreds.
That woman should sue the **** out of this colored addict loser

OK, but didn't he essentially commit battery (or at least assault) by pouring a drink on the woman and throwing the bottle? She instigated it for sure by throwing a glass so she did the same thing, but if he's splitting hairs.....
