Mike Epps is clearing the air after an unfriendly encounter with a fan after his show at the Improv last night went viral this morning, leaving many to believe he's homophobic. The fan, Norman Freeman, filmed himself confronting Epps for refusing to take a picture and accused him of doing so because Freeman is gay.
Now, Epps took to Instagram to explain what really went down, and deny the accusations levied against him.
Epps posted the following message flat-out denying that he's homophobic, and then added in the comments that the fan who attacked him "was trying to go viral," and added that Freeman was "wild the whole show."
He went on to say that it's not possible for him to be homophobic because "I work in a biz full of gay people." Hmm.
Believe him, or does the disgruntled fan have a point?
