One comment by a Kevin Marshburn, captured in a screengrab shortly after noon Feb. 9, said “guys the posters look nice but how can we know for sure that this wont be another mass walkout from celebs?”
Early on Feb. 10, EPCON posted on its Facebook page that it was removing Griffin's picture.
"Considering today's drama over the Eddie Griffin announcement, we're going to take his image off the FB page," an EPCON Facebook post reads. "Sometimes several agents are used to book shows and they are not always on the same page. So we think its safer to take it down until all the details are sorted out. Until today we were not aware Mr. Griffin had a show on March 7th in London, of all places! So stay tuned...we are still looking forward to an excellent show."
