Mike Epps, you in trouble now!
While performing on the ‘Festival Of Laughs’ comedy tour during it’s Detroit stop, Mike Epps might have bit off more than he can chew. During his set, Epps brought our a Kangaroo as apart of the act. As shown in the video, Epps is seen dancing with the animal before it strikes him in the face.
Several animal organizations logged onto social media to blast Epps for the kangaroo incident. PETA released a statement saying, “Traumatic situations can be fatal to kangaroos — who are not hardy animals — and this individual was subjected to a great deal of stress by being dragged in front of a boisterous crowd and forced to ‘dance,’. PETA hopes the U.S. Department of Agriculture will conduct an immediate investigation and that the backlash over this stunt will remind all comedians that there’s nothing funny about cruelty to animals.”–PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange
Since then, Mike Epps has announced that he will donate to help save kangaroos.
“Look I wanna sincerely apologize to everybody ,I don’t own the kangaroo and did not mean any harm to the animal it got outta hand and Iam sorry !and like I said I will be donating money to this foundation save the kangaroos ! Sorry if I offedend anybody I love animals sense I was a kid I had dogs my whole life !!#imadeabadmistake I keep taking down my post because of the back lash Iam getting!! thank you for forgiveness !!
