Some show goers and Epps followers were not pleased with the animal addition to the show. She has since filed complaints with Detroit Animal Control and the USDA, she said.

Tanya Espinosa, a representative for the United States Department of Agriculture, said: "We are not investigating, however, we are looking into this".

Comedian Mike Epps has apologized for bringing a kangaroo onstage at one of his shows - a kick in the shins to Twitter users who have been slamming it as animal abuse.

TMZ reports the handler also carried the animal around the stage when it looked like it tried to run off the stage.

"Look I wanna sincerely apologize to everybody". Despite the backlash, Stacks said the animal wasn't harmed and the harness he used was legal and preferable to a collar which could hurt the animal.

He wrote that the animal belonged to licensed zookeepers.

Epps defended the stunt in a social media message that has been deleted. Theses guys are license zoo keepers!

The actor posted an apology to Instagram, admitting he had made a mistake and promised he'd be "donating money" to a foundation called Save The Kangaroos.

According to TMZ, the kangaroo is part of a traveling exotic zoo and its handler Javon Stacks ― who went viral last week after he was recorded walking the kangaroo around Detroit streets ― claimed to have proper licensing.
