Katt Williams: I wasn’t really apologizing for anti-Mexican rant

The comedian isn’t really sorry for his anti-Mexican rant he made during a performance in Phoenix last week.

A video was posted online showing Williams singling out a member of the audience and asking him if he was a Mexican.

“It appears to me y’all like it over here a lot,” he said, telling the man that “this ain’t Mexico . It used to be Mexico [expletive] and now it’s Phoenix … Do you remember when white people used to say ‘Go back to Africa ,’ and we’d have to tell them we don’t want to? So if you love Mexico , (expletive), get the (expletive) over there!”

After the incident, a written statement apologizing for the remarks had been released by his publicist on his behalf this week.

“My remarks were not meant to be offensive,” the statement read. “I want to apologize if my comedy act was taken out of context. I sincerely appreciate my fans within the Mexican community and would never intentionally go out of my way to offend them,” he added.

However, on Sunday he told CNN that it didn’t come from him.

“I meant what I said and I said what I meant,” Williams said.

The comedian explained that it was the man in the audience who attacked him first with an expletive aimed at the United States .

“If a person starts their heckling with ‘f’ America , then that gives me the right to defend my country,” he said.

“I don’t think I need to apologize for being pro-American. If I had disrespected Mexicans, I wouldn’t have been able to get out of there alive.”

Williams insisted that as a comedian he cannot apologize for a performance.

“That’s for the Tracy Morgans of the world,” he added, referring to fellow comedian apologizing for anti-gay remarks he made at a stand-up show in Nashville .
