It’s bad enough that Katt Williams was arrested Monday morning for burglary and criminal trespassing in metro Atlanta.
But the comedian − normally known for his short stature and straight hair − is even more infamous for the mugshot he took in Coweta County.
With that Kool-Aid smile on his face, we can only imagine what’s going through his head − maybe he’s thinking of the inevitable jokes that will be told about him. Maybe he came up with a few of his own. (We’re secretly hoping that Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock toss a few into the mix.)
Either way, blogs, radio stations, email blasts and Twitter are on fire about his jailhouse pose. Many wonder how the comic, born Micah Williams, could be arrested for burglary in the first place. Ry_Terrence Tweeted: “Katt Williams smiling in his mugshot?! Like he at Disneyland! Jail isn’t an achievement.”
Katt’s lawyer, William Briggs, told TMZ that Williams was a guest, not a burglar, and that the false accusations are the result of a disagreement.
Others think it’s sad. KyonaCook on Twitter said: “I feel sorry for Katt Williams, people don’t do crazy things for nothing. Pray for him, instead of laughing at him.”
But many, many, many others are just undone by the photo: “I hope he does a standup routine about this,” Stoychers Tweeted.
Williams is scheduled to be arraigned later this afternoon. Check AJC.com for more updates.
