The video of Epps and what seemed to be a flustered marsupial caught the attention of animal rights activists who believed the comedian along animal handler Javon Stacks placed the animal in harms way.
"The Hangover" actor, Mike Epps, came under fire after he brought a kangaroo on stage during a performance in Detroit. She has since filed complaints with Detroit Animal Control and the USDA, she said.
Other footage shows one of the performers pick the kangaroo up and carry it around the stage.
Stacks went viral last week when a video surfaced of him walking around Detroit with a kangaroo on a leash. Epps took hold of the leash while he posed with the distressed kangaroo for a photo. The kangaroo was brought out by a handler and Epps danced with it.
A video, captured and published by The Shade Room, shows the comedian feeding a banana to a Kangaroo.

One is on my side every day, is the best I've played with", the Brazilian said, adding Messi had been key for his improvement. Neymar's dribble ended with him curling in a shot which took a slight deflection on its way into the Paraguayan goal.
According to MLive.com, the video generated hundreds of knee-jerk responses on social media where people assumed the kangaroo was stolen or owned by a "crackhead". That post was soon deleted, but screenshots show it was accompanied by the caption, "Yeh [sic] what's the problem now, look how nice I am 2 him" along with several hashtags, including, "I love animals" and "never tried to hurt him". 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.
Jovan Stacks, the owner of the kangaroo, said the animal is part of his exotic zoo business.
TMZ has reached out to a rep for Epps for comment, but has yet to hear back.
