Mike Epps Responds to Kangaroo Controversy

Posted April 04, 2017

Video taken by audience members show a handler holding the animal on a leash as Epps joked around and held onto the kangaroo's leash while he danced. After being slammed on social media for the act, Epps has now apologized.

The comedian, who is best known for his role as Black Doug in The Hangover movie franchise, suffered a punch to the face from a distressed kangaroo that he'd dragged onstage during his stand-up comedy show in Detroit.

Footage uploaded to social media and TMZ.com shows the handler carrying the animal around when it tried to leave the stage.

Derrick Rose to have knee surgery again, miss rest of season
He missed the entire 2012-13 season, played only 10 games the following season, and missed substantial time in every season since. Rose had a PER of 17.1, which is highest total since his last All-Star season in 11-12 when he had a mark of 23.0.

However, a person does not need a license to work with animals in a zoo but a business must have a USDA license to be open to guests and exhibit animals, according to a spokesperson for the Detroit Zoological Society.

Epps issued an apology on Instagram Sunday, along with the logo of Viva, a United Kingdom animal rights group.

He posted on Instagram late on Sunday that he wants to "sincerely apologise to everybody".
