Suge Knight

Katt Williams Isn't Crazy ...

He's Just Got a Short Fuse! (A Really Short Fuse)

Katt Williams
isn't losing his mind ... he's just a really sensitive man with a bad temper, who gets himself into bad situations -- this according to Katt's close friend and confidante Suge Knight.

Suge -- who was present for Katt's most recent arrest in Seattle following a bar fight -- tells TMZ, Katt's recent string of bizarre behavior was the result of fan harassment ... "People test him because he's small and the best comedian of all time."

Suge says fans forget Katt's a real person with real feelings ... and Katt lashes out as a result, when people mock him on the street, making jokes about his hair and calling him short.

Suge tells us, "When people see him, they don't separate the Katt Williams on stage from the Katt Williams just being a regular person."

Suge compares Katt's "rough spell" to Mike Tyson's and Richard Pryor's -- "That's what happens when you're the best in the business. Sometimes you just have rough times."

The Seattle bar fight is just one example -- Suge says he and Katt were watching the Seahawks game, but cheering for Chicago ... which pissed off local bar patrons ... who then started a fight with Katt.

Suge adds, "Things like that happen to Katt all the time where people start with him. He just don't take no sh*t."

If this is all the result of a short fuse, then he belongs in jail for his actions.

The guy is a public nuisance. He shouldn't be on the streets. He needs anger management. If people were picking on him than they are 10 fold now after is string of public outbursts.

"He just don't take no sh*t." Ok, that flys if your 12 or 13. Adults don't throw down every time someone looks at you wrong. Grow the hell up.

The mere fact that Suge Knight said it proves how ridiculous it is.

Well, there you have it. Suge Knight has spoken. So let it be written. So let it be done. However, if you want further evidence of Katt's mental state read PIMP DOWN: THE RISE & FALL OF KATT WILLIAMS available at Amazon.com or BN.com for Kindle, Nook and in paperback.

THANK YOU TMZ (and even HARVEY) for allowing FREEDOM OF SPEECH!!!! Almost every website in America requires Facebook to sign in and comment. Then if you say ANYTHING slightly sarcastic, they censor and remove your posts. I don't always agree with some of the morons that post here, but I DO appreciate that you let everyone speak their minds!! TY

Suge is street thug drug dealer disguised as a "businessman". His gangs of street thugs from South Central and/or a henchman he knows killed Tupac. Katt is probably drinking too much and taking Vicodin at the same time. That combo will make you feel great the first few hours, then highly pissed off at anyone/everyone. Suge will just continue to enable him so he can GET PAID!! Katt will be thankful when one of his numerous crimes he has committed catches up with him and he does a few weeks/months in jail and sobers up!!

I don't believe all that Suge said, making it seem cut and dry as to what Katt's string of troubles stems from. I believe he has a temper. I can believe he's sensitive, many people are. But I also believe he has some mental issues he isn't addressing. It's been rumored in the past and sometimes certain rumors are very true.
