Katt Williams Slap: Blamed on N-Word!

by at . Comments

Katt Williams has an explanation at least one of the many bizarre incidents he's been involved in lately - slapping Target employee Forrest Liebenberg in the face.

According to the comedian, it's all because he called Katt the n-word.

In new video footage, the 39-year-old can be heard describing to the audience at Comedy Store in L.A. what happened just before he slapped the employee.

In explaining the Katt Williams slap, the Katt said "This is what the dude at Target said, "'Your assistant is already suing you, you p**sy ass [N-word]."

The insult was an apparently reference to the lawsuit his former assistant has launched against him, suing him for $5 million. In response, Katt lost it.

Williams says he bristled when he heard the Target worker use the N-word and asked the employee, "Did you just say the N-word in front of Katt Williams?"

Liebenberg allegedly responded, "You say it all the time."

Katt claims he told the employee to repeat the word and see what happens, which is when he slapped Liebenberg, who was fired shortly after the incident.

Williams' explanation for the incident sheds some light on the bizarre encounter; however it doesn't explain hitting an audience member with a mic.

Or getting arrested after leading police on a chase on his three-wheel ATV, or getting arrested again after a bar fight, or threatening the manager with a pool cue.

Or throwing a cigarette at a woman, or getting kicked out of a hotel, or announcing his retirement from stand-up comedy, or un-retiring two days later.
