Tiffany Haddish may have stayed tight-lipped since the #WhoBitBeyonce rumours took over the internet but she’s now finally revealed which actress was to blame.
Haddish, 38, who sparked an online frenzy after telling her story about a mystery celeb launching themselves at the “Halo” superstar, revealed all in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Confirming that the female in question was, in fact, Sanaa Lathan, Haddish admitted: “I’m super good friends with her stepmom and her dad, and they were mad at me.
“They were like, ‘Why would you do this to the family? You know, black actresses, you guys have to stick together. It’s so hard for you guys to get work as it is, why would you try to ruin her career?’ But I didn’t try to ruin her career. I never said her name!
“I was just trying to say how Beyonce kept me from goin’ to jail that night. I coulda just shut my whole career down.”
Haddish then took a swipe at Roseanne Barr, whose sitcom was recently axed after she posted a racist tweet.
“I don’t know if you know El Segundo [a coastal California town near LAX], but if you’re black and you’re driving through El Segundo, you’re going to get pulled over.”
The “Girls Trip” favourite said how Barr ignored her when she tried to say hi, before she responded to her friend Anna, whom Haddish says is Hispanic but looks white.
“I thought, Maybe she got to know us. Then I go back, like, a week later, I wave again and say, ‘Hi, Roseanne! I love your comedy,’ and she (makes the same disgusted face) and turns her head.
“I think, F**k that bitch. That was 2000, maybe 2001, so it’s not new. She been racist, why’d you all give her a TV show?”
Haddish’s interview also saw her talk about inviting Taylor Swift to her 20-year high school reunion, as well as that raunchy encounter with Leonardo DiCaprio.
