Eddie Griffin might want to come to 2012, which is a world where homophobic remarks are not tolerated for any reason. The same jokes that would have gotten laughs 10 years ago can ruin your career today. He’s learning this after an unfortunate interaction with a lesbian couple at one of his shows this week. For a man who is already struggling to pay tons of child support, this isn’t a good look in the age of political correctness.
Lionna Walsh claims Griffin singled her and her partner out during a routine at Tommy T’s comedy club in Pleasanton, CA. According to TMZ, she claims the comedian pointed at her and said, “You’re a LESBIAN. All you need is a good man…I’ll volunteer my services. You won’t be needing any strap-on’s or vibrators with me [TMZ’s emphasis].”
“He started to pump his hips into my face,” Walsh said. “I felt sexually assaulted and I wanted him to stop—then I threw the drink at him to defend myself.”
