Bill Cosby Tiffany Haddish

Tiffany Haddish apologized for cracking a joke about disgraced comedian Bill Cosby, who faces numerous counts of sexual assault against women over a span of 40 years.

The ‘Girls Trip’ star cracked the joke after the Los Angeles Times asked who was still on her bucket list to work with.

“Bill Cosby – I still want to work with Bill Cosby, I don’t care, I’ll drink the juice. I’ll drink the juice. I’ll take a nap. I don’t give a damn,” Tiffany laughed. “But seriously, I would love for him to play my grandfather in something.”

Reporters who lack a sense of humor pressed Haddish to clarify her comments at the 2017 TCA Summer Press Tour in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday.

“What I said was a joke,” the 37-year-old comedienne-turned-actress said. “I don’t know if you’ve ever been interviewed before. You do 27 interviews and you’re supposed to be humorous all that time. You’re gonna say some bad jokes. You’re gonna come up with a few not-good jokes.

“I was trying to make it seem like I’m not afraid to do anything. I’m not afraid of any kind of job, I’m not afraid to play any kind of role, as long as it doesn’t compromise my morals.”

Tiffany was at the TCA Summer Press Tour to promote her new series The Last O.G., which also stars Tracy Morgan and Cedric the Entertainer.

    She actually DIDN’T apologize, she more explained that it was a joke, albeit, in bad taste but a joke…..IMHO….that shat was funny…..”I’ll prolly drink the juice too”!….You just gotta have a sense of humor…

  • YES I SAID IT…

    I just wish people would stop being so Sensitive, Its like she’s an comedian so ummm she is suppose to say some shiit that makes U go hmmmm! All I know is I don’t let certain people or what they say rub me the wrong way. Rather its funny or not, or done tastefully or its tacky, I’m immune to the shiiit. We need to learn how to chill, laugh, love, and let live. We all are different and all things that are done or said are not meant to be understood.

    There’s nothing wrong with her feeling herself right now, she’s been on grind for a while and the recognition must feel extra good. Only thing is that BC might come looking for tiffany with that one good eye.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    “What happened to yo face ?”?

  • Teide_luv

    ??…. hilarious!!!

  • SumthinSweeter

    YES and I felt low key mad at myself for laughing!

  • BlackGirls EatGreen

    OMG you made me go look. She needs help! And that holler she was doing! I was thinking is this a prank? But nope, she pulled off, still hollering.

  • BlackGirls EatGreen

    “You need to go back to the horspittle!!!”

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

  • BlackGirls EatGreen

    She is actually pretty funny. I don’t think the joke was bad but the joke did not fit the audience. She just needs a little polish about mainstream interviews. Sit down with the team and write some corny jokes that appeal to a cross section. I wish her the best.

  • i troll it like i see it

    And working with Cosby wouldn’t compromise her her morals? She must not have any then.

  • Justlooknout

    From what I see, both eyes might be bad since he needs assistance getting around. However, he will need someone to carry 1-2 grapefruits so she can give Bill a live demo.

  • HelloToni

    Why did she apologize…If that’s how she feels, that’s how she feels….

  • NicoleZee

    Because she could be jeopardizing future opportunities, that’s why celebs always apologize when they say dumb shit. She could lose out on working with certain people, TV/movie studios, or even companies that might want to use her for endorsements due to what she said. It was a very bad joke, she apologized or it seems like she just backtracked a bit, hopefully it won’t hurt her in the long run. She’s new, she can be herself of course, but tread lightly. In Hollywood, one minute you’re hot, and then the next minute you can barely book gigs. Just the way things go sometimes. And I certainly do not want to just see her in “Black” movies like some other Black actresses. She’s a cutie pie, talented, she has the potential to go very far.

  • chris

    They can’t have anyone saying anything remotely positive about him.

  • Noirluv45

    Exactly. They are always trying to control everyone’s narrative.

  • KarmaBackAround

  • Branch Davidian

    Sheeeeit…I would drink Jesus Juice, snort Benadryl, and whatever to get some of that Cosby Money..just no eating the puddin pop!!

  • Li

    She explained that it was a joke. Anyway, she shouldn’t apologize and just tell another joke about the joke.

  • interestingconcept1

    i like her, but she is going to burn out fast with folks…she just got a seat at the table, slow down…

  • Li

    It’s usally 5 people who tweet their disapproval and it gets picked up by the main media as a big issue — NOT!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    That part!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Y’all got me looking it up LOL.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Lmao…funniest video I’ve seen thus far!

  • Candance

    So for moths he was shamed all over every media outlet, then a comedian makes a joke that wasn’t that serious and she has to apologize….GTFOH

  • Candance

    I disagree, she has to strike while iron is hot…. slow down for what? She is using the Kevin Hart Method… make all the money while they are throwing it at you. She can slow down later but this is apparently her time…

  • Sade_fan

    I agree! #teamTiffany

  • interestingconcept1

    Lets make a bet. I give her 6 months, if that and she will fade, if she doesn’t slow down…I’ve been in this industry for a minute I know the patterns and the business.

  • HelloToni

    Agreed. I like her a lot. She’s a breath of fresh air. I loved her on the talk show when she was talking about her outing with Will and Jada .

  • Candance

    That may be the case… in todays world super stars don’t exist anymore so 6 months my be good for her. I think we will see her for a while… .
