Time magazine’s 100 most influential people list was unveiled Thursday, April 19 and the “Girls Trip” star was counted among them. As such, the comedian nabbed her own cover along with a blurb of praise from fellow comic Kevin Hart.The magazine enlisted fellow celebrities and changemakers to pen personal comments about each influencer. While fans were excited about the well-deserved honor, many were displeased about her look on the magazine, blasting Time for its hair and makeup choice.
“Who did hair and makeup because this is not a flattering picture,” someone tweeted.
“Tiffany is way prettier than this! She deserves better than that!! This magazine cover is so bad❗” said another.
“Ummmm excuse me @TIME! This photo look like when the photographer is doing test shots & caught her just doing something!” another fired up user said. “WE NEED A REDO @TiffanyHaddish you should demand one too!”
“Bad lighting, bad makeup, overall bad photo,” someone else said. “Y’all did her so wrong and you have the money do to better .🙄”
“No. Who is responsible for this?” someone else wondered. “She deserves better — the hair, makeup, lighting, styling…it’s all bad.”
And another Twitter user responded, “Oh Tiffany … you shouldn’t have talked about Beyoncé’s business, now look what’s happened because of it. She knows everyone.”
While fans were upset about the cover, many were pleased with Kevin Hart’s caption about the star.
In Kevin Hart’s write up on his “Night School” co-star, the actor relayed the story of how he gave her $300 13 years ago after learning she was homeless and living in her car. Today, Haddish has enough money to be able to buy herself a Gucci or Fendi purse if she wants — and Hart recognizes how far she’s come.
“Now Tiffany is bringing a whole new level of fresh to the comedy scene,” he wrote. “She’s just so authentic and unfiltered. You never know what’s going to come out of her mouth. And you can tell she’s having fun — she’s seen a time when things couldn’t get any worse, and she’s giving it all she has. …”
“Tiffany is an amazing talent with an even bigger heart,” he added. “She loves to put her loved ones in a position of happiness. I hope she keeps being herself because that’s what got her shining. And I want to see her go big and beyond.”
