A woman in the audience of funny man Eddie Griffin threw her drink on him after he joked about lesbians. The comedian responded with an “air-hump,” she contends.
Now Fiona Walsh, who is a lesbian, is claiming sexual assault.
As previously reported, the whole event happened at Tommy T’s Comedy Club in Pleasanton, Calif. last week. All was going well until he decided to single Walsh and her partner out because of their sexual orientation.
Walsh claims Griffin pointed to her and said, “You’re a lesbian. All you need is a good man … I’ll volunteer my services. You won’t be needing any strap-on’s or vibrators with me.”
But he took it a step further and brought his crotch too close.
“He started to pump his hips into my face,” she said. “I felt sexually assaulted and I wanted him to stop, then I threw the drink at him to defend myself.”
She then says Griffin hopped off stage and got onto the table.
“Before I could get away from him, he poured a water bottle on my head and threw it at me,” claims Walsh.
She’s seeking an apology and compensation for public humiliation.
