You don’t always hear about performers being sued by audience members because their show was so bad, but there’s a first time for everything. Comedian Katt Williams and Live Nation are the targets of a class action lawsuit filed by members of the audience in Oakland, who are angry as all get out over Katt’s allegedly horrible performance.
TMZ is reporting that Brian Herline has filed the suit on behalf of the members of the audience who spent good money to see a good show and instead got the kind of buffoonish debauchery that Katt has come to be known for these days. The plantiffs in the suit are saying that on November 16, Katt “confronted a heckler, took his clothes off, and attempted to fight at least three audience members.”
This is just the latest of antics from the comedian, who has observers worried that he is suffering from either a drug addiction or mental illness. He was arrested in Oakland only two days before the concert and has a long string of run-ins with the law that make it seem that the poor man is on a fast train to skid row. We hope he gets it together, since Katt is one of our favorites. It’s sad to see him like this.
