Katt Williams, The Huffington Post reports that comedian Katt Williams has published an “apology” for statements he made to a member of the Mexican public last week that have outraged many of his followers on YouTube and members of the Latino community, including prominent Mexican-American author Luis Rodriguez.
Part of his response to his provocative, Williams launched into a diatribe against Mexicans living in the United States. A transcription of the observations, courtesy of The Huffington Post:
Since everyone here likes you a lot. And I say; if I’m talking about the line, let me know. But I am saying that it seems to me, you all like it here a lot. And let me tell you why I’m making this assumption because I have no right to make that assumption. But know this, so this gives me the right, twisted it and do not … If y’all had California and loved it, then there should be as mothaf * cka up. You should have fought for California, dammit, and you like …
Because you think I’m dissing Mexico and defending America. Are you Mexican? Do you know where Mexico? No, this is Mexico, which used to be Mexico, motherf * cker, and now Phoenix, dammit. USA! USA!
F * ck you again, n * GGA. I bet not even go to Mexico, Motha f * cka … no n * GGA, you know where you are? USA! USA! I do not give an f * ck. no n * GGA, this is my neighborhood … [Security is] F * ck you! Mothaf ckas * think they can live in this country, loyalty and commitment to another country … Do you remember when white people used to say back to Africa? And we would not want to tell them? So if you like Mexico, b**ch, get the f * ck over there! [Break the national anthem].
We were slaves b**ch, just like all the work in the landscape … It is not even racial – you’re a b**ch! I do not give AF * ck race, that is, it’s p * ssy. ”
In his statement, Williams explained: “My remarks were not intended to be offensive. I apologize if my comedy act was taken out of context. I sincerely thank my fans in the Mexican community and never intentionally go out of my way offended. ”
Sigh. “[If] my comedy act was taken out of context”? In what context did we miss? We have seen the entire video. And he says he never “intentionally” offend their Mexican fans. That’s the message that if this happens by mistake through an angry tirade a heckler, then all is well?
Our message to Williams: If not sorry, either. Like any Internet commentator can tell, you have the right to freedom of expression. Just behind you’re routine and be done with the support of fans that think that hate and intolerance are acceptable part of humor. There are a lot. But if you really feel, how about issuing a statement, which is responsible for the hurtful things, you said and prejudice that inspired them, and attempts to move the conversation forward?
