Mike Epps came under fire over the weekend after bringing a live kangaroo on stage during his Festival of Laughs tour in Michigan. Now, after being berated and accused of animal cruelty, the comedian is apologizing.

“Look I wanna sincerely apologize to everybody,” Epps wrote on Instagram. “I don’t own the kangaroo and did not mean any harm to the animal it got outta hand and Iam sorry!”

Mike also explained in the lengthy apology that he will be donating money to the Save The Kangaroos Foundation. “Sorry if I offedend anybody I love animals sense I was a kid I had dogs my whole life !!#imadeabadmistake I keep taking down my post because of the back lash Iam getting!! thank you for forgiveness,” he wrote.

During the show in Detroit, the kangaroo and its handler made their way on stage for what appeared to be a mini dance party. The animal, however, was not having it. While Epps attempted to get crunk alongside the large species, the kangaroo swung its paw at Mike as if it intended to hurt.

Several took to social media to blast the comedian for exploiting animals for entertainment, including PETA, which released the following statement:

“Traumatic situations can be fatal to kangaroos — who are not hardy animals — and this individual was subjected to a great deal of stress by being dragged in front of a boisterous crowd and forced to ‘dance. PETA hopes the U.S. Department of Agriculture will conduct an immediate investigation and that the backlash over this stunt will remind all comedians that there’s nothing funny about cruelty to animals.”

Rihanna Admits To Having A “Fluctuating Body Type” — And This Is How She Deals With It

Published

on

Earlier this year, rumors were running rampant that Rihanna was pregnant. It became quickly evident that the singer was not carrying, but we are now learning that the apparent weight gain might’ve have ben due to fluctuation.

During an interview with The Cut, Badgalriri suggested she has a “fluctuating body type,” but that she’s learned how to dress for the variations. “I actually have had the pleasure of a fluctuating body type, where one day I can literally fit into something that is bodycon, and then the next day—the next week—I need something oversized,” she said while promoting her new Fenty x Puma line.

She added, “I need a little crop here and a high-waist there to hide that part, you know?”

The singer went on to explain that because people’s bodies are constantly changing, fashion should not be mundane. “I really pay attention every day when I go into the closet about what’s working for my body that morning,” she explained. “I feel like that’s how everyone should go after fashion, because it’s an individual thing.”

She continued, “And then, if you take it further, it’s like: What week are you having? You having a skinny week? You having a fat week? Are we doing arms this week? We doing legs this week? We doing oversized?”

The fashion designer added, “I love to play with silhouettes as well, but I think it’s important to make sure that you wear the thing that works for your body the best, and that’s flattering.”

Rihanna is not just a fashionista, but she is also wildly confident in every garment she rocks. Confidence is major for the singer, who expressed to the fashion outlet that it’s men in black who rule dressing with confidence.

Yes. This is new for me; this is recent. I love a man in black,” she explained. “It’s so sexy and mysterious; confident and secure—all the things I love about a man. So, I’m into that.”

Ri celebrated the launch of her new line just last week. Click here to see photos.
