The animal was described as distressed and social media lit up complaining. "PETA hopes the U.S. Department of Agriculture will conduct an immediate investigation and that the backlash over this stunt will remind all comedians that there's nothing amusing about cruelty to animals".

Epps, who played drug dealer "Black Doug" in the Hangover movies was performing at the Festival of Laughs comedy show when the kangaroo appeared on stage with his handler.

People didn't know that when they saw him and the kangaroo on stage with Epps, several of whom complained on social media.

Adding that 'the handler also carried the 'roo around as it appeared to attempt to run off the stage'.

Animal rights activists have filed a complaint against a Detroit man accused of taking a kangaroo on stage Friday night at Joe Louis Arena.

Another said: "I didn't think Mike Epps playing with that kangaroo last night was amusing at all". 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.

"Yeh look how nice Iam 2 him!" Theses guys are license zoo keepers!

Some ticket holders were upset by the display, according to TMZ.

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. He said things got out of hand but he didn't mean any harm and that he doesn't own the kangaroo.
