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 suggest that anytime someone in the newsroom has a disagreement with another person that proves unfruitful in nature, that the aforementioned comeback becomes the default response.

Furthermore, if this site provided the opportunity to add a signature to every post, his last words would be my selection.

"TMZ these nuts b1tch!"

So classy.

when you're playing a comedy club in suburban pleasanton, you don't really have much of a career. griffin still might have thought twice about making "dyke bitch jokes" in the bay area (or anywhere).

I'm sorry but TMZ is in the wrong here. The title of the story was very misleading.

I find it rather difficult to comprehend why most of these blacks in the United States can neither read, write nor spell in the English Language, despite English being their first language.

By the way, I am also black but from Africa.

Eddie's grammatical, spelling and general English Language errors are simply disgraceful.

There are so many jokes TMZ could come up with just with that one "defirmation of character" line... he's just giving it away. Hilarious!

He sure sounds like a highly educated, intellectual person, with top notch reading comprehension skills!

It's "y'all", Eddie, not "ya'll". in Mississippi they'd hang you from a lamppost just for getting that wrong.

Comedians, like politicians or authors, are people who have one main task in their job assignment: To work with language to communicate. So what would you call a comedian who apparently has no command of his native tongue, Eddie?

If Eddie Griffin thrust his musty crotch in my face, I'd castrate him. He got off easy with a glass of water after ridiculing a couple for their sexual orientation, offering to "**** them straight" and thrusting in her face.
