Katt Williams Sued By Fans Over Botched Stand-Up Show

Comedian Katt Williams is being sued by a group of fans over an allegedly botched stand-up show in Oakland, Calif.
The class-action lawsuit targets both Williams and his show’s promoter, Live Nation, for a performance taking place in Oakland on Nov. 16, according to TMZ. The lawsuit was filed by Brian Herline on Wednesday.
According to the suit, Williams was onstage for all of 10 minutes before the comedian stormed offstage. Reportedly, Williams delivered almost no comedic material during that time, but instead "confronted a heckler, took his clothes off, and attempted to fight at least three audience members."
Apparently, fans were extremely disappointed by the “nonperformance,” which explains the legal action being taken against Williams. In recent years, Williams has become known for bizarre behavior at his stand-up shows.
In August of last year, Williams reportedly launched a tirade against an audience member of Mexican descent, at one point yelling, "So if you love Mexico, bitch, get the f--k over there!" Williams refused to apologize for the incident, citing his patriotism and love of America as a defense for his actions.
This lawsuit is not the first bit of legal trouble to come Williams' way this month. Two days before the botched stand-up performance, the comedian was arrested on suspicion of battery in Oakland after allegedly getting into a fight at a club and hitting a man over the head with a glass bottle, as noted by TMZ.
