Comedian Kat Williams says he’s sorry and apologizes for racial comments he made toward a heckler, but he’s not sorry for what he said in last Saturday night’s performance.
Williams made some insensitive comments directed towards a man of Mexican descent at a performance, a rant that lasted for more than 7 minutes.
“My remarks were not meant to be offensive,” Williams said in a statement. “I want to apologize if my comedy act was taken out of context. I sincerely appreciate my fans within the Mexican community and would never intentionally go out of my way to offend them,” he added.
Williams and the heckler had some back and forth banter, with the comedian asking, “Are you Mexican? Do you know where Mexico is?” he asked the man.
Kat then unleashed a profanity-laced tirade while stopping at points to sing the National Anthem as audience members applauded wildly.
Not only, a comedian, Williams is known for being a rapper, and actor. He is best known for his role as Money Mike in “Friday After Next.” Kat is also known for his stint on Nick Cannon’s MTV show, Wild ‘n Out, and for playing the fictional character Bobby Shaw on the program “My Wife and Kids.”
