Comedian Eddie Griffin got booted from the stage at a Miami show last week after repeatedly using the N word. He was performing at a show for Black Enterprise magazine, a business magazine geared toward the black community.
“We believe that ending the performance was the appropriate action,” said a spokesman for the magazine.
I feel like there has to be more to this story. I mean, did they hire him without ever having heard his act? My guess is that they emphasized to him beforehand that he was not to use that word, and he either agreed and then used it anyway, or told them to fuck off.
The crowd apparently gave a standing ovation to the magazine’s publisher when he appeared on stage after Eddie got pulled.
