Charlamagne Tha God will crown anyone he deems foolish Donkey of The Day. The Breakfast Club host is a firm believer in giving a person their rightful props for their stupidity and on Monday (Sept. 17) the title went to past Donkey of The Day recipient Katt Williams.
Over the weekend, Williams stopped by the Frank and Wanda Morning Show with Atlanta’s V103 to take a few jabs at Tiffany Haddish’s comedic chops and said despite doing stand up since she was a teen, none of her jokes have real staying power.
“[She’s] been doing comedy since she was 16. You can’t tell me your favorite Tiffany Haddish joke. Why? Because she ain’t done a tour yet.”
Charlamagne got wind of Williams’ criticism and chose to debunk his claims about his own success.
“Katt Williams said Pimp Chronicles has grossed $24 million, so far. Now Pimp Chronicles did great but where did you get the $24 million from, Kat? We would like to see receipts because if Pimp Chronicles grossed $24 million it would be in the top 10 standup comedy concerts ever. But it’s not!”
The Black Privilege author continued his factual assault against Williams and insisted if he indeed sold 2.4 million tickets domestically for a Netflix special, he’d be on par with some of entertainment’s biggest names.
“Do y’all know how much 2.4 million tickets sold is? I’m trying to put this in perspective for you. If Katt Williams sold 2.4 million tickets on his last tour that’s more than Beyonce sold for her Formation tour; that’s more than Taylor Swift sold for her 1989 tour; that’s more than Madonna sold for her MDMA tour; that’s more than the Eagles sold for their Long Road out of Eden tour; that’s more than Justin [Timberlake] sold for his 20/20 tour; that’s more than Billy Joel sold on his Billy Joel in Concert tour. And these are artists who are doing this globally around arenas. Tell me how it’s possible that Katt Williams sold 2.4 million tickets domestically in theaters? If Katt Williams sold 2.4 million tickets he would’ve made the Forbes list.”
Charlamagne asserts Katt Williams “sounds smart to a dumb person” but insists if listeners take the time to research they’ll realize the seasoned comic isn’t as successful as he boasts, and is actually a hater.
“So kids, what is the lesson to be learned from all of this? Someone who hates you normally hates you for one of three reasons: they either see you as a threat, they hate themselves or they want to be you. Katt Williams look in the mirror and ask yourselves which one are you? “
