Eddie Griffin is threatening to sue TMZ over the story they broke regarding the water-bottle throwing incident at a comedy club this weekend. The problem is, Eddie clearly didn’t read the story.

Griffin has released a statement on his Facebook page in which he falsely claims TMZ accused him of “assaulting” a woman in the audience of his show in Pleasanton, California.

He also refers to the woman as a “dyke bitch.”

For those who actually read the story, you would know Griffin was not the instigator.

It was the woman in the crowd who threw her drink first after hearing a joke she considered to be offensive.

Griffin then retaliated by pouring his water bottle on the woman and then throwing the bottle at her.

Despite the facts, and footage of the incident, Griffin released the following statement:

These TMZ bitches said I assaulted a ‘WOMAN’ at my show in cali. I don’t know what kind of eyes these mutha f**kas got but that dyke bitch threw a glass of whatever she was drinkin’ in my face. All over a joke about dyke bitches!

He continued:

Now TMZ be careful with your choice of words, I didn’t assault a goddamn thing! if I had a n*gga would be locked the fuck up. As usual, media doing sensationalism instead of journalism.

Ya’ll better retract your story before i sue ya’ll bitch asses for defirmation of character!…or…rather what you really do…character assassination!!! You parasitic mutha F**kas!!!..TMZ these nuts bitch!!!
