Wait… you’re telling me Catwoman slapped Sandra from 227??

Emmy-winning actress and comedian Jackée Harry just dropped a bomb on Twitter and people are losing their minds. Apparently, at some point, she was slapped by the one and only Eartha Kitt, because Kitt thought Harry was sleeping with her boyfriend. A belief that, as it turns out, happened to be true.

The scandalous story was a response to a tweet from journalist and filmmaker Michael Segalov. On April 7, he asked Twitter users to describe their “most surreal encounter” with someone famous, and the answers were as bizarre and hilarious as you might hope.

Probably a few of these stories are made up, which is only acceptable if they are really really good.

A few lucky people even got the celebrity in question’s attention. Comedians John Hodgman and Greg Proops both replied to the stories about themselves.

Some people even got free artwork out of it.

But no one topped Harry for jaw-dropping “wtf?” reactions. Everyone seemed to agree that a slap from Eartha Kitt would undoubtedly be epic, and many shared video clips and gifs of the late actress/singer.

Obviously everyone wanted more details, and Harry did provide a few scant, although juicy tidbits.

Whoever the mystery man was, we hope he learned his lesson. And if you’re out there, please get in touch.
