After Slamming Tiffany Haddish, Here’s What Katt Williams Just Did To Her At Emmy’s
What a difference a few days, one viral radio roasting, one heated altercation-turned-foot chase, and an Emmy win can do for a brotha.
The 70th Emmy Awards Show was held on Monday, September 17, 2018, and both Katt Williams and his new rival, Tiffany Haddish, took home trophies. Katt won for ‘Outstanding Guest Actor’ in a Comedy Series (Atlanta) and Tiffany won ‘Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series’ (Saturday Night Live). That was all fine and dandy, but the highlight of the evening was what Katt did to Tiff’ backstage during the ceremony.
In case y’all didn’t catch what went down a few days ago, on Friday (Sept. 17th), Katt visited V103’s “Frankie & Wanda Radio Show” and stirred up more ruckus than a lil’ bit. Not only did he immensely roast the show’s co-host in his now viral interview, he slammed the hell outta Tiffany Haddish. Simply put, Katt pretty much said Tiffany doesn’t deserve to get all of the credit and accolades she’s getting these days, because she hasn’t put enough work.
Welp, like we said, what a difference a few days can bring. Why? Because in an odd twist of events, Katt ran into Tiffany backstage during the Emmy’s ceremony and appeared to bow down to the queen he saw before him. Tiffany was grinnin’ from ear to ear, as she held her new shiny Emmy Award and watched the man who’d just denounced her talents days earlier, kneel on both knees in a seemingly apologetic gesture.
Katt eventually stood up and smiled with Tiff’ for the camera and she posted the entire exchange on her Instagram page – just so her fans know it’s real out here.
In a post that included several photos, Tiffany captioned it with a simple, yet poignant message that read, “#emmys2018 #success #winners.” Check out Katt bowing down to the Girls Trip comedian below (be sure to swipe left).
In Case You Missed Their One-Sided Beef
As we previously reported, Katt didn’t hold his tongue one bit, when the V103 radio hosts asked him his views on comedian/actress, Mo’Nique claiming that Netflix unfairly pays Black women far less than Black male comics and her fellow white female comedians. Even though Katt shot down Mo’Nique’s claim, he also defended her, when comparing her situation to Tiffany Haddish’s latest Netflix deal, which she got soon after Mo’Nique blasted the streaming service.
On Tiffany Haddish, here’s what Katt had to say:
“She’s been telling jokes since she was 16, you can’t tell me one Tiffany Haddish joke,” Katt knowingly stated to the co-hosts. He continued, “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. And they already 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?
It’s up to you- whatever you want to believe. I’m the introduction to Tiffany Haddish in the movie, School Dance. The clip for School Dance has been seen more times than the movie has, that’s just a fact.”
Katt went on to say that Girls Trip‘s success had everything to do with it having “3 of our greatest Black actresses in it” (referring to the legacies of Jada Pinkett-Smith, Queen Latifah, and Regina Hall) and very little to do with Tiffany.
As far as the “White man” he referenced in his interview, according to Atlanta Journal Constitution:
[Katt Williams] also thinks Haddish is now the “It” girl because she wants “to sleep with a white man,” referencing a rumored relationship with recently divorced Brad Pitt. He also bad-mouthed her for marrying and divorcing a white man.
Tiffany politely responded with this tweet:
“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.”
Now, they’re both in a happy space.
