Eddie Griffin - Eddie Griffin Sued Over Comedy Gig

Comedian Eddie Griffin is facing a lawsuit over a controversial show in California last year (12).

Leslie Champlin has filed legal papers against Griffin and bosses at Tommy T's Comedy Club in Pleasanton alleging she and her partner Fiona Walshe were publicly humiliated during his show there in July, 2012.

Champlin claims Griffin aimed an allegedly homophobic rant at the couple and thrust his crotch in their faces, according to Tmz.com.

Walshe threw her drink at the comedian in protest, prompting Griffin to pour water on her.

The legal papers state the couple was thrown out of the club and Champlin is now suing for alleged civil rights violations, claiming she was discriminated against based on her sexual orientation.

Champlin also claims she was the victim of battery and negligence, and is demanding unspecified damages.
