Katt Williams has finally offered an explanation as to why he slapped a Sacramento Target employee in the face last month.
Katt told the audience at his show at the Comedy Store in Hollywood last night that the employee called him a n*gger.
"This is what the dude at Target said. 'Your assistant is already suing you, you p*ssy a** n*gger," Katt said. "Did you just say the n-word in front of Katt Williams?"
The employee reportedly answered, "You say it all the time."
"Say it again and see what happens," Katt told him, before slapping him in the face.
It's worth noting that Target fired the employee, 19-year old Forrest Liebenberg, shortly after the incident.
“I had no idea who this guy was before he came into Target that day," Liebenberg told CBS 13 earlier this month. "I was in no way the aggressor. I never went up to him."
Liebenberg says he still doesn't know why he was fired by the company.
“Maybe I was a little uninformed about how seriously the situation was with Target, but obviously it is pretty serious, I was just terminated today," he said. "They weren’t very clear, but it is obvious to me that it was based on this incident."
