Comedy legend Katt Williams in a recent appearance on the ‘Club Shay Shay’ podcast with former NFL tight end Shannon Sharpe laid bare the sins of Hollywood for the world to see. Williams savagely excoriated fellow celebrities and many figures in the comedy industry classifying them as “deviants” and establishing 2024 as the year that they would all be exposed.
During an explosive, nearly three-hour interview that Williams called “the reckoning,” Williams told Sharpe about his rise to fame, his humble beginnings in Ohio, and his early career in Oklahoma City and Miami. But he clearly made the most waves discussing Michael Jackson and R. Kelly, both accused of sexually abusing children, as well as P. Diddy, who was accused by four women of sexual assault. He also discussed the disgraced, convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein.
Even race and politics were on the table with Williams declaring, “Race is not where the line is drawn. It’s God’s side and the other side, and we don’t care nothing about the other side, period. All of these big-d— deviants is all catching hell in 2024. It’s up for all of ’em.”
“It don’t matter if you Diddy or whoever you is … all lies will be exposed. That’s all, and anyone who takes that the wrong way, know why they take it the wrong way … the truth is the light.”
The comedian warned a somewhat aghast Sharpe that he has extensive information on the “deviants” he’s worked alongside for decades, knowing what they’ve done and holding onto those secrets. “Because, in 30 years, I’ve done nothing but collect information, knowledge, and your secrets,” he said. “So, if you and a man was in a corner doing something you wasn’t supposed to be doing … somebody come to tell me.”
Williams made claims against several other prominent Hollywood figures as well ranging from actor Kevin Hart to Cedric the Entertainer, according to Forbes. Describing his methodology for establishing his information he told Sharpe, “I gather that. I value that. I’ll pay for that. Come tell me. I know so many things I shouldn’t know, and they all know it … You don’t make me the villain, not the guy that raises Black children and ain’t never done a hard drug in his life, and don’t have no stories of doing nobody dirty, and they’ll just go out and lie, ‘The industry doesn’t mess with Katt because he didn’t show up for the studio.’ No studios have ever said that.'”
When asked if he feared repercussions or retaliation for calling out his peers Williams told the host, “Satan can’t create anything. That includes blessings for his people. That’s why, you know what the No. 1 job of somebody that sold their soul in Hollywood is? Is to act like it didn’t happen.”
