Last week, comedian Aries Spears got into some hot water during an interview with webcaster Corey Holcomb, host of the live-streamed “Corey Holcomb 5150” show. When an argument about race got very heated, punches were thrown, and now TMZ has obtained video of the incident (above; warning, it’s violent).
The entire incident stemmed from a PC-baiting debate over the differences between light-skinned and dark-skinned people of color – with many an N-word being thrown out – and came to a climax when co-host Zo Williams, offended by Spears’ language, began throwing punches.
Spears didn’t react well on social media:
So on the 5150 show wit @thecoreyholcomb I touched dudes feelings so much he swung off on me w/o warning! Peep it lol bitch nigga

And Williams and Holcomb released their own statements, too:
This is very on point. But I knew this the whole time but me trying to be kind backfired. I learned to never compromise my show for pity.💯💩 https://t.co/tkU3M044gh

Spears claims he was drunk during the interview but, either way, an unfortunate event for everyone involved.
