It’s been a couple of seconds since infinitely messy comedian Katt Williams has graced the digital pages of Dlisted with his signature style. Were there no 7th graders to beat down, Target cashiers to slap, or seafood restaurants in which to hurl salt shakers at faces, you ask? There probably were but Katt’s not one to revist his classics. He is, however, one to opine on our current crop of comedians in a tone and manner much like your “tell it like it is,” bitter-at-life auntie uses after she’s had too many eggnog cocktails at Christmastime. Katt addressed Tiffany Haddish’s blowing up big time, and pretty much says it’s because she’s into white guys. If so, those are some lucky white dudes.
Katt sat for an interview on V-103’s Frank and Wanda show yesterday (via Complex) and the talk turned to Ms. Haddish. Spoiler alert: Katt’s not riding the Tiffany train. Firstly, Katt feels that “comedian” is a misnomer when it comes to describing Tiffany’s occupation.
“[Haddish has] been doing comedian since she was 16. You can’t tell me your favorite Tiffany Haddish joke. 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,” he said. “They all ready to down Mo’Nique and up somebody who has showed them Girls Trip. Did 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.”
Wait, hold up, did he just refer to his interviewer Wanda Smith as “goofball?” Rude! By the by, Tiffany has had a comedy special and has a deal with Netflix for another one. But let’s move on to how white men have supposedly made Tiffany great. Reminder – Tiffany Haddish famously claimed that she made a pact with Brad Pitt at this year’s Oscars that they’d bang if they were both still single in one year’s time.
Host Wanda Smith then attempted to defend Haddish, insisting she was liked because she was “real.” Williams questioned when “real” became marketable, and then claimed the industry only likes her because she “wants to sleep with a white man,” referring to her not-so-secret crush on Brad Pitt.
Fun fact: Katt and Tiffany appeared together in 2014’s comedy/drama/musical School Dance and Katt was obviously not saving her any bagels at the craft services table. Despite telling some of the filthiest jokes and stories that I’ve ever delightedly heard, Tiffany is, in reality, a gracious gentlewoman when it comes to crazy types spitting on her for her success. She tweeted back and managed not to mention 7th graders, Target or seafood restaurant arrests. (Both Tiffany and Katt both won Emmys in a historic sweep for black actors at the Creative Arts Emmys this year.)
It’s official I made it!@KattPackAllDay talked about me and didn’t have his facts right! #Iwin #sheready 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 😘 https://t.co/WVOgZvwLZn

Watch for Katt to try and convince Fifth Harmony to reunite and record a track he wrote called “STFU Tiffany Haddish!” as his clapback to Tiffany’s gentle tweet.
