Kid-punching Katt Williams says the teen he popped in the face had it coming.
The oft-jailed standup comic claimed he’d sucker-punched 17-year-old Luke Wash, who squared off Tuesday against Williams in a post-soccer game showdown, to school him on the consequences of trash talk.
“Even though we’re the same size, you’re a little boy; I’m a grown-a– man,” Williams recounted Friday in a fan-recorded blow-by-blow at Barclays Center. “I just want you to have a bloody mouth so you can have that lesson later — that that’s what happens when you say slick s–t to grown a– men.”
Wash, the leader of the opposing (and losing) team, began advancing on Williams while he was sitting with his back against a wall, the comedian said.
Katt Williams says he punched a 17-year-old to teach him the consequences of trash talk.
“He says some slick s–t. And I say, ‘Hey, you know y’all can’t win this game so why would you say f–k me?’ And he said, ‘Well, what are you gonna do about it?’” the comic said.
The punch — which resulted in Wash wrestling Williams to the ground in a chokehold — was meant to teach the teen that “a n—- that can hit you is also a n—- that can pull out a gun and blow your motherf–king brains out,” the “Scary Movie 5” star argued.
“Why would you put yourself in that position just because you lost a soccer game?” he said.
Williams also clarified he hadn’t known Wash was only 17. Rather, he thought the boy was 19.
“The n—- was smoking a cigarette like me, n—- was tall as me, and me and him was the only people on the soccer courts that was cussin’,” the 5-foot-5 Williams said.
Earlier in Williams’ rambling set, he explained how he’d wound up playing soccer with a bunch of kids in the first place.

The “Norbit” star was cruising in his Polaris Slingshot motorcycle, he said, when a cop began following him. Hoping to avoid yet another brush-up with the law, Williams pulled over and began walking instead — but the policeman continued tailing him until the teens apparently created a diversion.
“These little kids just saved me from the motherf–king next day in jail, so I say, ‘What the f–k is all of you doing out here?’” he recalled. “They said, ‘We was playing soccer.’ I said, ‘Well, I’m in.’”
Williams said he chose to lead the losing team, rallying them to a 5-2 victory against Wash’s crew.
Video of the altercation went viral earlier this week. Police are investigating the incident, which went down at subsidized housing in Gainesville, Sgt. Kevin Holbrooke of the Gainesville Police Department told the Daily News.
Williams later challenged the teen online to a rematch, according to Wash’s uncle, Cedric Wash.
“Katt Williams went on Instagram and he told Luke to meet at the same spot so they can fight again,” he told The News on Thursday.
The troubled entertainer currently faces charges stemming from three different arrests in the last month, including allegedly ordering an attack on his own bodyguard and punching a pool store employee.
An aspiring actress also recently alleged that two years ago, Williams ordered five women — possibly under the influence of witchcraft — to assault her after she used his bathroom.
