Comedian Eddie Griffin Tells Lesbian Audience Member: “All You Need Is A Good Man” – THE REAL STORY

Comedian Eddie Griffin has joined the Tracey Morgan Club of Comedic Gay Bashing when recently while performing at  Tommy T’s Comedy Club in Pleasanton, California spotted a lesbian couple in a club and told one of  themAll you need is a good man. I’ll volunteer my services to get in between the two of you to show you a good time you won’t be needing any strap-ons or vibrators with me.”

 And then things got even uglier.

But lets start at the beginning……

Fiona Walshe and her girlfriend Leslie Champlin went  out to dinner and a comedy show for a friend’s birthday when the anti-gay harassment happened by Griffin who proudly announced at the beginning of his set that he was extremely drunk.

“It was fairly early on. He made some comments stating that I looked like a librarian, that I looked rigid but it continued throughout the night and was escalating each time. It really wasn’t until he noticed I was there with my partner that everything changed,” Fiona said. “My girlfriend, who was sitting behind me, had her right hand on my shoulder and it’s like a light went off. As soon as he realized we were a gay couple, he was almost given license to unleash and to justify why I wasn’t laughing at his jokes.

“Oh, l see what’s going on here: You’re a lesbian. All you need is a good man. I’ll volunteer my services to get in between the two of you to show you a good time you won’t be needing any strap-ons or vibrators with me. 

“I was like a deer caught in headlights,” Fiona said. “He just unleashed on me and then he was actually pumping his hips at a sexual manner at my face and that’s when I threw my drink at him.”

But not only did Griffin not stop.  He threw his drink and some things on the stage back at Fiona Walshe while the crowd at Tommy T’s applauded and cheered Griffin on.

At that point security at the club just came to the aid of Griffin on-stage and left Fiona and her girlfriend to fend for themselves in the hostile audience.

“Me and my partner literally tried to get to the exit and we had drinks being thrown at us from every direction,” Fiona said. “Even from the balcony. We had no escort. Even when we got outside we were still being abused. We ran to our car, absolutely drenched and, in fear, we kept looking behind ourselves. We thought we’d get jumped in the car park.”

Griffin on the next day posted on his Facebook page “that dyke bitch threw a drink in his face about a dyke bitch joke,”

Neither Eddie Griffin and Tommy T’s Comedy Club  have reached out nor publicly acknowledged the incident other than Eddie saying that he was using the word “dyke” as “slang” and not as something “derogatory.”

Funny like the black community uses the “N-word” for slang and no one else can do so without being called racist.

OMG!  Eddie Griffin must be a LESBIAN!  Thats why he can use the word “dyke” as slang.
