Fans of comedian Katt Williams are suing him after a profanity-laced tirade that brought an abrupt end to his recent performance in Oakland.

During his November 16th show, Williams began cursing and threatening a heckler in the crowd at Oracle Arena. An audience member shared video of the confrontation with ABC7 News.

Eventually Williams' own security dragged him off the stage and the show ended after just ten minutes.

TMZ is reporting that people in the audience have filed a class action lawsuit. The suit is seeking unspecified damages for "Katt Williams' non-performance."
