The reliably controversial Emmy-winning comicKatt Williams didn't hold back on Tiffany Haddish during a visit to V-103's Frank and Wanda Show Friday, saying Haddish didn't deserve the success she's gotten.
“She ain’t done a tour yet. She ain’t done a special,” Williams told the show. “She has not proven the ability to tell jokes back-to-back for an hour to nobody.”
He said 2017's "Girls Trip" was a success despite her, not because of her and he credits the script, not Haddish' acting. (She is co starring in the Atlanta-based comedy film "Night School" later this month with Kevin Hart.)
He also said she jumped over 46 more qualified black women comedians.
Haddish decided not to bite back, instead tweeting:
“It’s official I made it! [Katt Williams] talked about me and didn’t have his facts right! 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.”
