Comedian Eddie Griffin says his use an anti-gay slur directed at an audience member during one of his shows last week, was “slang, and not deragotory.”

While on stage at Tommy T’s Comedy House in Pleasanton, Calif., Griffin riled up a woman sitting in the front row, according to The Huffington Post. We don’t know what he said exactly, but his rant about the woman’s perceived sexual orientation prompted her to toss a glass of wine or champagne at him.
