Eddie Griffin Thrown Off Stage for using N-Word at Black Entertainment Event

Eddie Griffin thought he’d shock the swells at a big Black Enterprise event ( 14th Annual Black Enterprise/Pepsi Golf & Tennis Challenge.) over the weekend by littering his act with N-words, but the comic was the one who got the real jolt when the mag’s owner gonged his routine, and tossed him off the stage!

Rev. Al Sharpton tells TMZ that Griffin took the stage as the headliner and did his best Michael Richards impression, blistering the mostly African-American crowd with a barrage of N-bombs, and wailing, “Why are some black leaders telling us to stop using the N word?”

Griffin’s mike was promptly cut, and Black Enterprise owner/publisher Earl Graves stomped on stage and proclaimed, “We … will not allow our culture to go backwards … We will pay Mr. Griffin all that we owe him but we will not allow him to finish the show if that’s the way he’s going to talk.” Oh, snap!

The crowd gave Graves a standing ovation — and Rev. Al, speaking the next day at the event, gave Graves props for his axing of Griffin. A rep for Griffin had no comment.

    I’m thinking of Chris Rock’s “Why I hate…” routine, which i like. Eddie’s a comedian, so, was this a case of poorly delivered sarcasm (cheapest form of humour)? Was this ACTUALLY a Michael Richards impersonation or is that the creative writing of the reporter? Did Griffen get cut before he made his point/punchline? Did they ‘not get it?’ I wasn’t there to see/hear it in context so who knows why the Abe Lincon w/Elvis sideburns guy, cut him.

    However, if Eddie was doin’ it right, we would have received an ovation for his comedic prowess. The folks at BE were probably right. They’ve seen it all, and thats why they were playin’ golf & tennis with Pepsi.

    You know what to expect when Mr. Griffin took the stage, did anyone go his material, did anyone tell him what he could and could not say???

    So why were surprised then as now… The ignorance it this whole thing is the action not taken before he was signed to headline the event.

    Graves you took advantage of a situation to better your appearance in the eyes of those that use these exact words daily and wear them as casual as a pair of Air Jordan’s.

    Better yet take off your mask and I will take off mine, brother.
