Tell Katt Williams To Apologize For His Anti-Latino Tirade

Mothaf*ckas think they can live in this country and pledge allegiance to another country… 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, bitch, get the f*ck over there! [breaks into the National Anthem]. - Katt Williams

Tell comedian Katt Williams to apologize for these and other remarks that he directed towards a heckler of Latino descent in Phoenix, Arizona, on Saturday, August 27.  

The Message

This will be delivered to Katt Williams booking agent, Chris Smith, at International Creative Management in Los Angeles:

Dear Katt Williams,

Your anti-Mexican rants on Saturday in Phoenix, Arizona, crossed the line from comedy into xenophobia.  Hateful and dehumanizing talk about Mexicans and Latinos is unacceptable, particularly in Arizona, where Latinos are regularly racially profiled, insulted, beaten and even killed.

Your comments also inflame tensions between the African-American and Latino communities.  This is tension we don't need at a time when our communities are disproportionately suffering from this economic recession and face large injustices in all areas from education, to health, to incarceration.

Please apologize for your remarks immediately so that we can get back to a place where we're laughing together rather than angry at each other.
