Today In Hip Hop News, currently the subject of a sexual harassment lawsuit, Tiffany Haddish has finally broke her silence regarding a sexually suggestive sketch in which has now become the center of a sexual misconduct lawsuit.
The actress expressed she "deeply regrets" for agreeing to participate in the comedy sketch with comedian Aries Spears six years ago in an Instagram post on Monday.
The Girls Trip actress said that she wanted to clarify the situation but was unable to do so because of the current legal dispute.
The post read, “I know people have a bunch of questions. I get it. I’m right there with you,” Haddish says in her statement. “Unfortunately, because there is an ongoing legal case, there’s very little that I can say right now.”
“Haddish adds, "But, clearly, while the sketch was intended to be comedic, it wasn’t funny at all and I deeply regret having agreed to act in it. I really look forward to being able to share a lot more about this situation as soon as I can.”
This admission comes after a suit was issued in Los Angeles Superior Court last week, alleging that the two comedians coerced and groomed two siblings, who were 7 and 14 years old at the time, to take part in two different sexually explicit sketches.
The seven-year-old allegedly made an appearance in the sketch "Through A Pedophile's Eyes," as noted by The Daily Beast, according to the lawsuit.
The explicit suit has been rejected as a "shakedown" by the lawyers representing Haddish and Spears. The story is still unfolding.
