Xavier University, which is hosting the September 10 Katt Williams Show this Saturday, has "respectfully declined" our request for an interview to discuss the controversy surrounding Williams' Mexican Rant in Phoenix two weeks ago.

In an email sent to us, Xavier University Director of Public Relations Debora Del Valle said: "Hello, Thank you for the opportunity for an interview. We respectfully decline the offer."

Williams, who appeared on CNN this past weekend to address his Phoenix performance and said he was not sorry for his comments but that he was sorry for being "anti-Mexican," is still facing social media heat by Latino organizations around the country.

The Xavier show, which be held at the Cintas Center —the university's principal arena—, will begin at 8pm this Saturday.
