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.”

It was Mrs. Hart’s first red carpet since giving birth to the couple’s first child, Kenzo Kash, just three weeks ago. To say it was a snapback is an understatement. The 30-year-old, who worked out during her entire pregnancy, look sexy and svelt in a elegant black number while her superstar hubby hit the carpet in a black suit with white trim.

Although the couple faced some bumps in the road earlier this year with Kev being extorted over a video showing him cheating on his wife, the couple has bounced back. And on Tuesday night’s jungle-themed red carpet Hart told HipHollywood, “My wife is amazing. I would not be the person I am today with out her.”

You can see Kev, alongside Dewayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black and more, when “Jumani: Welcome To The Jungle” hits theaters on December 20th.
