Tiffany Haddish Shares Story About Encounter With Roseanne: She Been Racist!

Tiffany Haddish has never been the type to hold her tongue, spilling the tea about an old encounter with fellow comedian Roseanne Barr, who recently lost her rebooted sitcom after making racist remarks about former President Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Haddish shared that Barr wasn’t particularly kind when she attempted to introduce herself while visiting a friend who lived in the same neighborhood.

“One day, we were walking around the neighborhood, and Anna says, ‘Oh, Roseanne lives there,’” she recalls. “Now, I loved Roseanne, and the next day we walked by, and she was in her yard. I say, ‘Hiiii, Roseanne.’ She looks at me [makes a disgusted face], and ran in the house. I thought, ‘Maybe she don’t want to be bothered today.’”

She continues, “A week later, we walk by again, and I told Anna—she’s Hispanic, but she looks White—she should say hi this time. So she says, ‘Hi, Roseanne,’ and Roseanne goes, ‘Hey!’ I thought, ‘Maybe she got to know us.’”

Haddish went on, “Then I go back, like, a week later, I wave again and say, ‘Hi, Roseanne! I love your comedy,’ and she [makes the same disgusted face] and turns her head.”

“I think, ‘F*ck that b*tch.’ That was 2000, maybe 2001, so it’s not new. She been racist. Why’d you all give her a TV show?” the 38-year-old said.

Since the cancellation of her show, Barr has blamed everything from Ambien to left-wing hypocrisy for her downfall. She also admitted to “begging” her network for forgiveness and to not cancel her show, a move ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey clearly had no interest in.
