Mike Epps Brings Kangaroo on Stage, Gets Punched

Video of the incident showed Mr. Epps jerking the animal's leash upward several times before it appears to take a swipe at the comedian's face.

The 47-year-old showed little remorse for his actions as users took to social media to lash out at the actor for his callous behaviour.

Fans of Mike Epps are reportedly pissed about the comedian bringing out a kangaroo during his set at the Festival of Laughs comedy tour in Detroit on Friday (Mar 31).

"They end up bringing the kangaroo up and wanting to show the kangaroo off on the front of the stage".

Clips posted online from audience members show Mike, 47, tormenting the wild animal - which appeared to be wearing some kind of harness - before the marsupial threw a punch causing Mike to run off stage in a fright.

"Yeh look how nice Iam 2 him!"

In an half-hearted attempt to put a positive spin on the situation, Epps posted a backstage video of himself feeding a banana to a different kangaroo, accompanied by the caption, "Yeah what's the problem?"

"Look I wanna sincerely apologize to everybody, I don't own the kangaroo and did not mean any harm to the animal it got outta hand and I am sorry", he captioned a photo of the logo for Viva, a British animal rights group.
