She may be enjoying a history-making GRAMMY win (click here to read more), but funnywoman Tiffany Haddish probably wasn’t laughing when she checked her Twitter mentions to find congratulatory messsages overtaken by a bevy of Barb attacks.
Look inside to see what she said that has Nicki Minaj fans so up in arms.
During a recent chat on Clubhouse, a fan offered Haddish a compliment by saying she was the ‘Nicki Minaj’ of comedy. Apparently, Tiff didn’t appreciate that.
“…unlike Nicki, I treat everybody with respect and dignity,” she said in response.
Ouch! While it’s not exactly clear why Haddish responded in that manner to the comparsion, some speculate it stems from her brief interaction with Nicki at the 2018 MTV VMAs. Fans may remember Minaj publicly corrected the comedienne after she attempted to minimize the relevance of former Fifth Harmony star Normani.
Stroll down memory lane below.
Regardless of the reason, Minaj fans have been going in on Haddish since the comment made its way around the Web.
