It may come as no surprise that Katt Williams has issued an apology behind some hostile words directed at a Mexican audience member in Phoenix over the weekend. As you may recall, Clutch reported that the pint-sized comic didn’t take the heckling of a Latino audience member too well, saying things like, “you think I’m dissing Mexico and I’m defending America. Are you Mexican? Do you know where Mexico is?” and “No this ain’t Mexico, it used to be Mexico, motherf*cker, and now it’s Phoenix, goddammit. USA! USA!”
In an effort to make amends, Williams has made the following official statement: “My remarks were not meant to be offensive. I want to apologize if my comedy act was taken out of context.” He continues to say, “I sincerely appreciate my fans within the Mexican community and would never intentionally go out of my way to offend them.”
Reminiscent of the Tracy Morgan gay tirade fiasco, it looks like Williams took all the proper post-rant precautions, but only time will tell if it’s enough to save a declining career.
