Hart was on Instagram live Saturday and spoke on anyone who has an issue with “Night School” co-start. He said, “I have to embrace my sister when other people are choosing to frown and make an attempt to sh*t on my sister’s bright light.” While not calling out Williams directly, Hart continued, “I choose to turn up the knob and make that light brighter…At the height of her career when most should applaud when most should celebrate, some choose to down.”
Haddish took the high road in response to Williams critique of her career. She tweeted on Friday, “It’s official I made it!@KattPackAllDay talked about me and didn’t have his facts right!
#Iwin #sheready I look forward to seeing you on Monday Katt, when we pick up our Emmys. I just want to shower you with REAL Love cause you need it, and I Love you.”
On Friday, Sept. 14 Williams stopped by V-103 in Atlanta and issued some harsh jabs at Haddish’s career as a comedian. “You can’t tell me your favorite Tiffany Haddish joke. Why? Because she ain’t done a tour yet,” he said. “She ain’t done a special, she has not proven the ability to tell jokes back to back for an hour to nobody. And they all ready to down Mo’Nique and up somebody who has shown them ‘Girls Trip.’ Do you think she wrote ‘Girls Trip,’ goofball? Or do you think that was already a script and they handed it to her.”
Many accused Williams of practicing a crab in the barrel mentality.
“I don’t understand why we have to make everything a competition in the black community. Just celebrate your sister’s accomplishments @KattPackAllDay! Tiffany, thank you for sharing your story! You have inspired so many of us who suffered from childhood trauma! Keep winning!”
“How come we just can’t support each others success? Why?”
While others defended the veteran comedian.
“He was absolutely right. Rachetness and cooning seem to be the only type of comedy accepted in Hollywood”
“We are legitimately in an era where because everyone is so politically correct, and a pick me to be offended, we can’t hi side on NOONE w/o the good ol “he/she is demeaning [ insert an entire demographic ]. I’d hate to be a comedian in this era
