Katt Williams takes back apology for his anti-Mexican rant

katt-williams-gi.jpgIt turns out that heartfelt apology made by Katt Williams for a series of anti-Mexican comments captured on tape by a fan was written by his publicist.

On Saturday, Williams told CNN that while he apologized to anyone who perceived his remarks as "hateful," he would not apologize for the comments themselves.

"I meant what I said and I said what I meant," Williams said, quoting Dr. Seuss.

He added that apologies were "for the Tracy Morgans of the world." Morgan apologized after making anti-gay remarks on stage during a Nashville stand-up performance.

Among Williams' comments, made during a performance in Phoenix, Ariz.: "Are you Mexican? Do you know where Mexico is? No, this ain't Mexico, it used to be Mexico, motherf***er, and now it's Phoenix, godd***it. USA! USA!"

"I don't think I need to apologize for being pro-American," Williams told CNN before adding that he really appreciates his Mexican fan-base.

He just has a funny (not) way of showing it.
