Tiffany Haddish responded to those who criticized her after she made an appearance as a presenter at the 77th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.
The backlash surrounded Haddish’s reaction to actress Michelle Williams’ acceptance speech, which touched on women’s rights. The speech came after Williams won the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television.
As she spoke, the “Night School” star who appears in the new movie “Like a Boss” gave an enthusiastic response by clapping and speaking loudly. And many thought the behavior she displayed perpetuated black stereotypes and was far from funny. It’s a criticism that Haddish has received before.
“Smh she really needs to tone it down sometimes, that loud act ain’t cute,” someone tweeted.
“She never misses a chance to coon it up,” another person wrote.
“Very rude, no manners at all,” a third person commented.
But there were others who defended 40-year-old Haddish and said she didn’t do anything wrong.
“I fail to see what the problem is,” one Instagram user wrote.
Haddish responded to all the talk Monday on Instagram, and she did it by sharing a video of herself walking out of an elevator.
“Here Haters smell the roses and stop being a bitch. I am already on the next level,” she wrote. “#sheready #instylemagazine #istillloveyouanyways.”
After the Los Angeles native posted the video, her followers said it was the perfect way to respond to her detractors.
“What who can hate you? You are fabulous!!” one person wrote on Instagram.
“That’s right beautiful lady f–k all them haters💯,” wrote another.
“Let em hate while your at the Bank !!!. 😍,” another fan stated.
So far, over 2,900 people commented on Haddish’s video and it’s been viewed over 900,000 times.
