Mike Epps: I am NOT homophobic!
Mike Epps has taken to social media, telling his fans that he is not homophobic. See his Instagram post below.
He also posted a throwback photo of him on the stage, sharing his love for the comedy game.
Both of these posts are in response to a Epps fan – who goes by the IG name Norman Freeman- claiming that the comedian refused take a picture with him because of his sexuality. The incident went down at the IMPROV comedy club this week and Norman documented the entire situation on social media.
Things went left, really fast. Here’s the clip of Norman calling Epps a homophobe.
So rude??Ok so Mike epps spent 10 minutes joking with me while I was in the crowd about me being a man, I thought it was so funny, and being that I do comedy as well I took no offense to it, Until the end of the show I went to take a picture with him and he denied me because of my sexuality! Really??? So I then approached him and called him out on it! And it got CRAZY!! The violent part is cut out! ….he’s a homophobe SMH you should have seen how he looked at me ! I was a big FAN but trust me I’ll be bigger than you before you know it!! I had to sneak in another girls picture!! @tmz_tv @theshaderoom #improv #mikeepps
And here’s a clip of Norman denying he’s thirsty for exposure.
Here’s footage of someone else filming the situation.
