Katt Williams Says Tiffany Haddish Hasn’t Proven Herself As A Comedian
Katt Williams doesn’t seem to be impressed by Tiffany Haddish’s comeup.
He had some harsh words for the Night School star during a sit down on the “Frank and Wanda” show on Atlanta’s V103 radio station.
“She’s been doing comedy since she was 16. You can’t tell me your favorite Tiffany Haddish joke,” he said downplaying the comedienne’s career. “Why? Because she ain’t done a tour yet. She ain’t done a special. She has not proven the ability to tell jokes back-to-back for an hour to nobody.”
When host Wanda Smith tried to come to Haddish’s defense, Williams continued to shun the idea that she’s a great comedienne. Smith cited her hilarious Girls Trip performance but Williams was still not phased because the Haddish was not a writer for the movie.
“I am a writer. I only care about what you write. I don’t care about what you can read. Everybody can read.”
Then he claimed the L.A native is only “liked” because she wants to sleep with a white man, which seemed to come out of left field.
“They like her because she said she wants to sleep with a white man. That’s why the only thing she said was ‘I wanna give it to Brad Pitt.'”
Williams is referring to an interview Haddish did with Kelly Ripa backstage at this year’s Oscars when she gushed about meeting Brad Pitt in the elevator and the promise he made her.
“Oh, I just met him in the elevator,” she excitedly told Ripa. “He said in one year, if he’s single and I’m single, we gonna do it—so, you know what that means.”
Haddish actually did a hour-long stand up special in 2017 titled She Ready: From the Hood to Hollywood. Her Netflix comedy special will also be released next year.
