Mike Epps sorry for dancing with kangaroo on Detroit stage

Mike Epps is admitting he didn't use the best judgement Friday night when he made a decision to dance onstage with a kangaroo at a Detroit comedy show.

Mr. Epps had zoo owner Javon Stacks bring the kangaroo onstage in front of a rowdy crowd Friday night in Detroit. PETA also says it wants the U.S. Department Of Agriculture to "conduct an immediate investigation" in this event, and it hopes the backlash reminds comedians that "there's nothing amusing about cruelty to animals". He told MLive.com the animal, which is native to Australia, is part of a travelling exotic zoo and claimed he had the proper licenses.

A video shows the comedian and the handler with the kangaroo, which is held upright. After being slammed on social media for the act, Epps has now apologized. Stacks told the gossip news outlet that the kangaroo was not harmed during the incident. The animal belongs to the Exhibit Zoo. "When schools invite us...we perform in the gymnasium".

Kejriwal demands inquiry into 'defective' EVMs, paper trail for polls
Election Commission has sent two teams to Madhya Pradesh, following complaints from opposition parties on malfunctioning of EVMs. In 2009, Subramanian Swami and GVL Rao alleged that the EVMs had been tampered with after the Congress party came back to power.

Epps attempted to defend himself against the criticism in an Instagram video over the weekend, but later apologized in an another post and pledged to donate to the Save the Kangaroo foundation.

A stunt involving a live kangaroo has forced comedian Mike Epps to apologize, but the incident may also get him in trouble with the law. The post was later deleted.

According to Epps, the original plan was to have the kangaroo run across the stage as a joke, but that's not how it played out.
