Grinnin’ for Griffin

Oprah recently made a plea to Jay-Z to stop using what we in America call the n word. Jigga Man said no — and comedian Eddie Griffin has got the rapper’s back. When it comes to his very much R-rated comedy, you can’t help but notice his love for the term. And when someone is making you laugh that hard, you can’t help but overlook it.

With the speech speed of a child off his Ritalin and the mouth of drunken sailor, there is a good possibility Mr. Griffin has offended you at least once. He is a comedy classic known for his UPN hot show Malcolm and Eddie and has been in cinematic classics like Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, Scary Movie, and Norbit. And let’s not forget his role on Chappelle’s Show as “Grits and Gravy.” He more than likely will never walk the Oscar stage, but the minute he hits the standup mic, get ready to chuckle.
