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."

People here are such hypocrits. While I do not believe Katt is the best comedian of all time...at all. I can understand his anger with some people. Let us all be clear that heckling is something that comedians should be used to while ON the stage. Nobody likes to be harassed when the job is over, and to me it isn't right. I understand the "don't put your hands on somebody" thing but after a while, for many people, it gets old and that MAY be the case for Katt. I mean, he's short, and has a perm. That's all grounds for being made fun of and he probably gets it ALOT. In addition to this, I believe Katt has a complex. He probably got made fun of in the past a lot and so he tries to stand his ground and show he's tough by hitting people. Does not make it right but that's truly what I think the situation is. Regardless, he does need to get it together because while its fine for regular men to fight or go off on one another, he is in the public eye and will be chastised for everything he does.

I also think that he takes his character to a whole other level and becomes the person that he portrays on the stage and in movies. He truly thinks he's a pimp, slapping people left and right. That kind of stuff can't be done.

If you make your living clowning other people, be prepared when someone clowns you. And why the hell is Suge all of a sudden concerned about the sensitivity of others?

He's not crazy because he is a comedian and people talk ****. You come to Seattle and talk **** about the Seahawks and you will get beat up. Short doofy hair, or not.

isn't it the reason why all these celebrities gets paid exorbitant amount of money? If he has a bad short temper, a jail is a place for him to go. I dont wanna see victims from this stupid guy.
