Charleston White has learned, perhaps the hard way, not to get violent with audience members.
The controversial comedian was performing on Saturday (December 9) when an audience member began heckling him. The show, which took place at the Crockett Civic Center in Crockett, Texas was part of a Christmas celebration.
Things started taking a sharp left turn when White began taunting two audience members wearing L.A. Lakers jerseys.
“Pull out some money, though! Pull out some money,” he shouted at them. “Bitch ass n-gga, pull out some money!”
One of the attendees began approaching the stage, which prompted White to threaten that he would hit the heckler “in your goddamn head” while picking up a plant from the stage. Despite security trying to diffuse the situation, White subsequently tossed the plant at the audience member’s head, prompting an all-out brawl onstage.

Charleston White has increasingly become known for his controversial takes on current affairs.
Last month, he made headlines when he rehashed old rumors surrounding Lil Durk and King Von, claiming that the OTF leader “snitched” on the late drill rapper.
“He [Von] was killed tryna harm a n-gga smaller than him!” he said. “And we gon’ shame Timmy? We don’t shame Durk! Durk beat the case, and puttin’ it on Von! Snitched on his dead potna! C’mon my n-gga! See, Durk wasn’t no killer! Von was!”
He continued: “Rest of them n-ggas wasn’t. They’re singin’ and rappin’. The rest of these n-ggas that singin’ and rappin’ wasn’t no killers! We know for a fact he was. We all know for a fact that the reason King Von was released from jail to become a big star was because the witnesses turned up dead.”
White seems to have been referring to an incident which happened in 2019. In May of that year, Durk (real name Durk Banks) turned himself in to the police after a warrant was issued for his arrest in connection with a February 2019 shooting outside of the Atlanta restaurant The Varsity.
The Chicago rapper and fellow OTF member King Von — who was killed in November 2020 — were charged with criminal attempt to commit murder, as well as aggravated assault, participation in criminal street gang activity, possession of firearm during the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
But on October 22 of that year, the charges against Durk and the late Von were dropped due to “prosecutorial discretion,” according to WSB-TV.
In a Dismissal of Charges Motion issued by Georgia’s Superior Court of Fulton County, District Attorney Fani Willis said: “The facts of this case have been reviewed and, although it appears that probable cause existed for the defendant’s arrest, the decision of the District Attorney at this time is not to prosecute.”
