AceShowbiz - Eddie Griffin may soon find himself making headlines for the wrong reason. The comedian, who has been traveling across the United States doing a new comedy routine, reportedly disrespected Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith at one of his recent shows.
On Tuesday, January 31, Gossip of the City Tea tweeted, "Eddie Griffin dog walked @jadapsmith and her husband Will Smith on his new stand up." According to the news blog, his joke was so bad that the "King Richard" actor might "go nuts once he hears Eddie words." Eddie allegedly "dragged Jada kids and her mother too" onstage.
As if it's not enough, the former "Malcolm & Eddie" star reportedly might offend the LGBTQ community with his jokes, which were dubbed "Big Yikes." The blog claimed that he "also dragged black women and said black women were 'weak.' " He allegedly said "black women betrayed black men by taking section 8 from the white man which didn't allow the black man to be in the home."
During the show, which date and location were not shared, he also "body shamed women all night and dragged white folks so bad three white women got up and left." The blog further reported that "he tore the gay community a new one and used the F word a few times."
While it's not revealed what the 54-year-old comedian exactly said that might hurt others, the person who spilled the beans claimed that they "saw it in person."
Neither Eddie nor Will and Jada have spoken up on the report. The news arrives as Will announced that "Bad Boys 4" is officially in the works, with him and Martin Lawrence returning as Mike Lowrey and Marcus Miles Burnett respectively.
In a video posted on his official Instagram account on Tuesday, Smith said, "Yo, I've got an announcement," as he climbed into a car and began driving. He told his followers, "Y'all better stop scrolling. Seriously."
He then headed to Martin's house and knocked on the door. Once Martin opened the door, he asked, "It's about that time?" They screamed in unison, "Bad boys 4 life," before riffing on the fact that the third film, released in 2020, was already titled "Bad Boys for Life".
Martin shared the same video on his own verified account with the identical caption, "IT'S ABOUT THAT TIME!"
