Tiffany Haddish Fires Back After People Accuse Her of Talking Too Much

Brad Pitt Tiffany Haddish


You’ve probably heard the old adage: People like to build you up, only to tear you down later.

That very thing could be happening to Tiffany Haddish, because just a few months ago she seemed to be everyone’s favorite entertainer, and now she’s being criticized for talking about other celebrities too much. 

The backlash began when Haddish relayed a story about meeting Beyoncé, and how the singer kept her from getting into a physical altercation. She also said Bey stopped an actress from flirting with her husband JAY-Z, which the Beyhive didn’t like.

Even Beyoncé seemed to respond to the comedian on the DJ Khaled song “Top Off” with the line “If they’re trying to party with the queen, they gon’ have to sign a non-disclosure.” 

Then on Monday (March 5), “Live with Kelly and Ryan” ran an interview with Haddish that was filmed backstage at the Oscars, and the 38-year-old said she and Brad Pitt made a sexual pact.

“Oh, I just met him on the elevator,” she revealed. “He said in one year if he’s single and I’m single, we gonna do it. So you know what that means? But he do got seven kids. I don’t know if I could deal with a man that’s got that many kids … I don’t know. He asked me to wait a year.”

Although the “Girl’s Trip” actress started receiving backlash after the Beyoncé story, it swelled in the past week or so, after “Top Off” dropped and she made those comments about Pitt.

“I think she’s become annoying because it appears that every time she has a mic in her face, she’s talking about someone else,” one person wrote. “Like, damn, girl.”

Haddish, aware of the backlash, responded on Twitter with a mixture of calmness and sarcasm.

“Look, I just love you,” she wrote. “Used your digital to talk about me good or bad. ‘Cause at the end of the day, it’s like you are introducing me to your 18,700 followers that may not have gotten the chance to even know me. So thank you and keep up the good work. God bless you.”

But some came to Haddish’s defense and said she was being the victim of a double-standard since a lot of male comedians talk about celebs for laughs but don’t get the same type of criticism.

You can see some of that conversation below, as well as another comment from someone who said Haddish shouldn’t be considered an A-list celebrity. The comedian responded to that message too.
