We all have bad days. Lately, it seems Black women, especially Black women in the public eye, are not given the luxury of an off day. After bombing on stage, Tiffany Haddish is facing criticism from people who could not wait to tear her down.
We all recall the interview with Atlanta V 103’s Wanda Smith where Katt Williams was very critical of Tiffany Haddish. Commenting on her lack of comedic originality and unmemorable jokes, Katt shared his opinion and at the time many agreed. Tiffany Haddish is corny to a lot of Black folks. But while her humor may not be our cup of tea, we don’t have to commit to reveling in her misfortune.
I went to go see if @TiffanyHaddish was actually funny. I ended up doing this. Conclusion: She is not funny. Horrible show. In her defense, she said she was having a rough night. She didn’t have to be up there. She ended up inviting me up on stage to tell jokes. 🤦🏾♂️😂 pic.twitter.com/Ze1BPzeY9S

While performing at the James L. Knight Center in Miami, Tiffany found herself stumbling over her jokes and attendees were quick to be critical. Recording and heckling her as she watched fans leave the venue, many seemed eager to take to Twitter and tear down the comedienne. I must say I’m severely disappointed, but not surprised.
With so few mainstream Black female comics, the pedestal Tiffany Haddish balances on is smaller and higher — robbing her of the luxury of failing in peace. Every misstep, no matter how small, is amplified by the rarity of female presence in her brand of humor. The same audience that finds Black male comics funny when they portray loud, animated stereotypes of Black women is the same audience dragging Tiffany for “not being funny”. This has to stop. If you don’t want to support her work, that’s fine. But don’t make the effort to show up just to attack someone for having a bad day when your mistakes are not broadcast for the world to see.
Do you think fans are right to be critical of Tiffany’s performance? Do you think people are being too hard on her?
J.K. Rowling Gets Dragged After Saying Dumbledore and Grindelwald had “Intense” Relationship
JK Rowling must be taking her cues from Tumblr fan fics. In news that no one expected, JK revealed Dumbledore and Grindelwald were once involved in an “intense sexual relationship.” But fans are scratching their heads wondering why her characters are never openly gay in the films or the books.
Stemming from a thread that quotes the author, Rowling revealed she was “less interested in the sexual side.” Recent updates show that JK must be far more interested than she’s leading on and fans aren’t having it! The response to this new information has readers saying “Wingardium Leviosa” to her wig.
Chief among her fans complaints is the lack of queer representation in her novels coupled with her frequent highly sexual updates that serve as attempts to maintain relevance. In addition, her extra details frequently complicate what readers already know from the books. In September 2018, one reveal inadvertently made Neville Longbottom a murderer.
Fans of her beloved wizarding world have been shading her endlessly since the unwarranted reveal, but JK has yet to respond to any of the criticism.
Disney Alum Kyle Massey Hit With $1.5 Million Sexual Misconduct Lawsuit
Say it ain’t so! That’s So Raven star Kyle Massey has been sued for sending sexually explicit messages to a teenage girl.
According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly, Massey is being sued for $1.5 million in a civil suit. The girl, who Massey met at just 4-years-old, claims the former Disney star maintained contact to help advance her career. Now, at age 13, she has come forward with allegations.
She claims that Massey had arranged for her to stay with him and his girlfriend, Hana Giraldo, in Los Angeles. Massey was allegedly using this visit to help the minor secure an agent. But just days after the invitation, Massey sent the alleged victim photos of his genitalia.
The lawsuit states that he is being sued for three counts of negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Included as negligence is the attempt to commit a lewd act with a minor, annoying or molesting a minor, and harmful matter sent with intent of seduction of a minor.
While Massey himself has yet to comment on the matter, both his brother and mother have spoken out. Massey’s mother went to Instagram to defend her son, stating “KYLE MASSEY IS THE VICTIM! Where is the justice for men?!” While Massey’s brother, Christopher, alleges that the victim’s mother Kindra Adams is a known scammer and is only doing this for money.
Jess Hilarious Catches Heat for Islamophobic Remarks
Just days after the Christchurch terrorist attack that robbed nearly 50 Muslims of their lives and injured 50 more, Jess Hilarious has bared her xenophobia for the world to see. Using fear for her safety as an excuse, the aptly named Jess With The Mess profiled a Sikh family that was allegedly ejected from her flight.

Stating “I feel how I feel. I felt threatened and that was it,” Jessica “Jess Hilarious” Moore has committed to standing in a grave of bigotry that is certain to claim her career. She has become notorious in recent months for spewing hatred against queer people. Now, she’s directing that ignorance toward a community that has suffered major atrocities in America and beyond.
The Xenophobia Jumped Out
According to Jess With The Mess, they boarded the same plane and she “didn’t see those people.” However, sources say the Sikh family was not removed from the flight. Basking disgustingly in the news of their removal, she failed to realize that Islamophobia doesn’t look good on her or anyone else.
Jess Hilarious has been getting dragged by Twitter users for her Islamophobic remarks and has since attempted to explain herself via Instagram Stories. However, her posts are rife with contradictions. She directly asks “Where are you going?” while focusing the camera on the Sikh family. During the time between boarding, she can be heard LOUDLY voicing her concerns. Yelling at one’s phone in the middle of an airport, regardless of how busy, never goes unnoticed.
In peak White Woman™ fashion, Jess immediately adopted the “We have [insert marginalized group] in my family” trope to explain away her apparent bigoted remarks. But no one is buying what she’s selling. By using fear for her safety as a qualifier for her ignorance, Jess has employed a tactic famous within several circles of systematic oppression, particularly cops who kill unarmed Black people.
As for whether she’s taking accountability for the weight of her trash words during such sensitive time, the answer is a resounding NO.
