Eddie Griffin Faces Lawsuit After ‘Homophobic’ Comments

Published

on

Eddie Griffin is being sued after a woman claims he sexually assaulted her.

During one of the comedian’s shows last July, Griffin targeted a woman and her girlfriend and began to make comments about their relationship.

“You’re a LESBIAN. All you need is a good man … I’ll volunteer my services. You won’t be needing any strap-on’s or vibrators with me,” Griffin reportedly told the couple during his show at Tommy T’s in Pleasanton, Ca.

Leslie Champlin, who filed the lawsuit, claims that Griffin started to put his crotch in her face, and that’s when Champlin’s partner threw her drink at him. But Griffin wouldn’t let it go. He took it a step further and poured water on her head and then threw the bottle at her.

Champlin and her girlfriend were kicked out of the club, and never received an apology from the club or the Griffin.

She is now suing for civil rights violations, battery and negligence, and demanding unspecified damages.

HH reached out to Eddie’s camp, but no word back.

No Joke: Bill Cosby Is Back On Stage Doing Stand-Up

We are not trying to shame the elderly, but we are super confused why Bill Cosby is back on stage doing stand-up. He is after all 80-years old and going blind, but apparently that’s all apart of his routine.

Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.

Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.

Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.

#BillCosby has returned to comedy since his trial last summer.

The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
