Lesbian Patron on Eddie Griffin: He Sexually Assaulted Me
Fiona Walshe (pictured below, bottom) is looking for not only an apology but compensation as well from comedian Eddie Griffin (pictured left) for an alleged lewd act that she was subjected to by him at one of his recent shows. The funnyman is accused of thrusting his hips into Walshe’s face to such an extreme that she felt sexually assaulted. The funny bit turned ugly and a fight of sorts ensued, according to TMZ.

=========

Read the comments below the article. Most of them are saying that it is not sexual assault since he never touched her. I believe it is, since many people have been fired from jobs for sexual assault just for SAYING the wrong thing.

Others in the comments say she was asking for it by sitting in the front of the audience at a comedy show.

I probably would have done a lot worse than throw a drink in his face.

What do you guys think? Discuss.

How about he thought everyone likes his type of comedy. Sometimes comedy acts are'nt funny.

Well, I sure wouldn't think that what he did was funny at all...especially if I was a lesbian...which I'm not, by the way. I'm a very happily married heterosexual. I know how some people here like to jump to conclusions very fast.

Re: Lesbian Patron on Eddie Griffin: He Sexually Assaulted Me
With the comments that Eddie Griffin has said about lesbians at past shows...... why the hell is any lesbian going to see Eddie Griffin?

The scene described in the article, minus the throwing stuff, is basically the same shit he was saying and doing on Voodoo Child.
He doesn't seem to fond of lesbians...

Physical contact was initiated by the woman, so she could be looking at a counter suit IMO. No matter what he said or what gestures he made, he did not initiate contact, but she did by throwing a drink. I'm sure Griffin was well within bounds on what comedians can do on stage.

The best she could do is claim he taunted her, but "sexual assault", I don't think that will stick.

It's the same thing like in professional wrestling where the wrestlers can gesture and jaw with the crowd, but they can't initiate contact, however if someone in the audience is offended by the wrestle's antics and jumps the guard rail and attacks the wrestler or throws a drink at the wrestle, the wrestler can and will defend themselves.

Griffin then approached Walsh and according to the angry woman, “He started to pump his hips into my face.

So thrusting his groin in her face is ok because it's part of his act? I'm sorry, but I find that a little too much.

Re: Lesbian Patron on Eddie Griffin: He Sexually Assaulted Me
Not sexual assault at all. The OP is confusing people being fired for sexual harassment with assault.

Assault requires contact of some kind.

Say when the woman illegally threw a drink at the performer.

He responded with aggression that didn't sound needed, but might be considered self defense.

Being offended does not excuse assault.

I think the woman in question is trying to come out charging from the gate so that she isn't charged for the first assault in this case.It's a good strategy, but this sounds like a poor comedian (Not very good) coming up against the wrong part of his audience and having the whole thing go sideways on him.

*Is it all right to thrust at women as part of a comedy act?

Yes.

There is no law against it at all.

Even if it is tacky.

So in this case it looks (based on one article) to be the woman's fault and responsibility. She mistakenly thought her feeling offended was the same as being harmed or attacked. It isn't.
