Tiffany Haddish is having the best year ever.
After turning in a scene-stealing performance in last summer’s hit comedy Girls Trip, Haddish has gone on to release a best selling memoir (The Last Black Unicorn), star in a Super Bowl ad for Groupon, and work on a soon-to-be-released TV show, TBS’ The Last O.G.s. It’s clear the 38-year-old is having a serious moment, and she’s doing her best to keep it going.
Recently, Haddish’s name came up after fellow actress and comedian Mo’Nique asked fans to boycott Netflix for alleged racial and gender bias after the streaming giant offered her $500,000 for a comedy special. Mo’Nique felt the amount was disrespectfully low, particularly compared to the multi-million dollar contracts between Netflix and fellow stand-up acts like Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, and Amy Schumer. While many questioned Mo’s methods, others commended her on opening the door for newcomers like Haddish.
