Well, he probably won’t be doing THAT again soon.
Isn’t it well known in Hollywood that you can never predict what an animal will do — even the trained ones?
Mike Epps of the Hangover movies just failed Animal Handling Lesson #1.
The comedian was performing a show in Chicago and he surprised the audience by bringing a kangaroo onstage.
The kangaroo, Skippy, seemed agitated but his handler, Javon Stacks, seemed oblivious as he enjoyed his 15 minutes of fame.
It’s now 15 minutes of infamy.
Mike Epps, best known for his appearances in the Hangover movies, shocked on-lookers in Detroit on Friday, but ran away after Skippy retaliated by throwing a punch at the actor.
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.
Epps, who played drug dealer ‘Black Doug’ in the Hangover movies was performing at the Festival of Laughs comedy show when the kangaroo appeared on stage with his handler.
Footage shows the comedian egging on the kangaroo to partake in the show, but runs away when the ‘roo punches him in the face.
The handler, undisturbed by the clearly distressed animal, joined in the frivolities appearing to rev up the crowd as he held onto the kangaroo on a leash.
According to TMZ, Epps at one point grabbed the leash himself, and held the ‘animal for a photo’.
Adding that ‘the handler also carried the ‘roo around as it appeared to attempt to run off the stage.’

After the literal beatdown, Epps suffered a digital one on social media.
Many fans were outraged, calling it animal abuse and noting that the animal looked in distress.
Watch here as Epps tries to calm the situation with a video of him feeding the kangaroo:
Epps still looks terrified once Skippy is finished his banana.
He made a quick exit as soon as the animal was finished eating.
It looks like Mike Epps needs this:
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles addresses our nation’s abysmal wussification in his NEW book …
The Effeminization Of The American Male
by Doug Giles
Doug Giles, best-selling author of Raising Righteous And Rowdy Girls and Editor-In-Chief of the mega-blog, ClashDaily.com, has just penned a book he guarantees will kick hipster males into the rarefied air of masculinity.
That is, if the man-child will put down his frappuccino; shut the hell up and listen and obey everything he instructs them to do in his timely and tornadic tome.
In The Effeminization Of The American Male, Giles takes ‘Crispin’ from the unaccomplished, prissy and dank corridors of ‘Wussville’ up the steep, treacherous and unforgiving trail that leads to ‘Mantown.’
“Secretly, everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a p*ssy generation.” – Clint Eastwood
This is definitely one of the most politically incorrect books to ever hit the market.
It will most certainly offend the entitled whiners, but it will also be a breath of fresh air to young males who wish to be men versus hipster dandies.
