Comedian Tiffany Haddish sparked speculation on social media after she announced she was cancelling her Atlanta comedy show due to the state's restrictive "heartbeat" abortion law. But sources say she cancelled for a different reason.

Haddish, 39, was scheduled to perform at the Fox Theater in Atlanta on June 22. But she pulled out of the show until Georgia lawmakers repeals the ban on abortions.

"After much deliberation, I am postponing my upcoming show in Atlanta. I love the state of Georgia, but I need to stand with women and until they withdraw Measure HB481, I cannot in good faith perform there," the Girls Trip star said in a statement on Saturday.

But sources say the comedienne is only grandstanding because ticket sales to her shows have been slow.

Insiders say Haddish would not have cancelled her upcoming show in Atlanta if the show was sold out.

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed the heartbeat bill into law in May. The bill calls for prohibiting abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.

The law states, "unborn children are a class of living, distinct person."

Haddish joins other Hollywood stars who denounced Georgia lawmakers for banning abortions and violating a woman's right to choose.

Hollywood studios also threatened to pull out of Georgia if the law is not repealed. The film industry brought 92,000 jobs to the area and poured over $4 billion into the local economy.

    Lol better do as liberal Hollywood says if you want to keep those roles.... Hollywood agenda or bust.???????????? those so called celebrities are owned by that industry...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    We don't give af!!!!!!

  • Appplesauce

    Katy Williams was right. Any hood chick could have played her role in GT. I guess after her Miami show bombed she realized doing stand up was tougher than what she thought.

  • davine puddin

    If paul Mooney did the comedy place on marrietta street downtown. What made her think she can sell out the fox...

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Don't nobody care if she cancels a show trying to fake stand for something she doesn't care about. She is NOT that important to begin with. Nobody is going to change their ruling for her, please!!! Her 15 mins are almost up thank god because I haven't been hearing or seeing her annoying ass lately until now. So I believe it had to be another reason for the cancellation and we still don't care so give those 15 pp their money back and go back into the hole you crawled out of.

    "over $4 billion into the local economy." - and where did that money go? I don't care if they never film in Georgia again cause the only impact we see as residents are road closures on Peachtree St.

    I wondered ever since the date was announced, how many ATliens were going to attend after her New Year's letdown. Yeah, okay T. *Wink, wink*.

  • Coy little wink

    I like her hair in that top pic...but her comedy I will pass

  • hottlanta

    Tiffany stop with the madness. Your ego has really gotten outta control of itself if u really thought we was gonna ride or die to get a ticket to your show.????

  • Karen Brady

    Also… The Fox?? I see her more as a Roxy or Tabernacle ticket. Atl Civic Center would have been perfect for her.

  • Mielle Downey

    That's a joke that is better than her stand up carreer. She canceled because she has no standup talent. Black celebrities are a trader to thier own race. You are the purpose for abortions and I'm starting to think it was a good idea for Margaret Sanger's career

  • stav

    The real reason is....she sucks!

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    We're as devastated as this cat Tiffany.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I LOVE that Tiffany took her weave out and is wearing her true natural hair. Plus it's in VERY good condition.

    She is also slaying her role in the show 'The Last OG'. She was annoying in Tyler Perry's 'Nobody's Fool'. I prefer her in a TV show or sitcom, she's similar to Mike Epps whom is a much better actor than stand up comic also.

  • Mo Laughz

    I know she is killing it in last OG! And I actually avoided watching it for along time because I didn't wasn't in the mood to see her coonin and bafoonin in yet another movie/show. But I broke down and watched and was pleasantly surprised!

  • KLove

    But sources say the comedienne is only grandstanding because ticket sales to her shows have been slow.

    Yall noticed since folks saw how the exonerated 5 where treated in new york folks like Tiffany n other celebrities aint boycotting not to do business in new york. But they r jumping on the abortion band wagon for safety activism to say they did something.

  • J’aime Sucer

    So she waited until a week before the show to announce she’s cancelling ? The bill was signed last month. Why no pull out then ?

  • missmiami305

    Word is she wasn’t selling any tickets and didn’t want to perform to a half filled venue. Either way, at least she got some good promo. I like Tiffany.

  • OvertheMississippi

    Hubby asked me when didn’t we go. Shoot! I didn’t know either. Saw him here several years ago. He was great.

  • SunSoy

    You come from and was raised in a ni@@a factory! You certainty act one!

  • Candie P

    Might be the alcohol.

  • JazzyBossyJen

    She had no funny material to perform with anyway..

  • Sweetness

    Was your comment directed towards me? And if so...why?

    I'm expressing my humor. If you're offended...I apologize total stranger?

  • IamAllnatural

    Tiffany stop lying. You canceled because you’re afraid of getting booed again.

  • Jussjess25

    Exactly

  • Chipswife

    She know nobody was coming to see her dry ass sense of humor. Who she think she fooling cause it sure ain't us Atlanta folks

  • dazja

    Why is there such hate for Tiffany in these comments? She's getting more hate than I see white supremacists get on here, sad.

  • CookieMobster

    These celebrities.... I really nice her but I HIGHLY DOUBT the governor of GA said to himself, "OMG self, Tiffany Haddish is canceling here show because of the abortion bill!!! You've got to do something, self." Then I doubt he said "You know what, self, you are right. I am going to repeal that bill." Nerp!!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Tiffany is relieved, hopefully she can take a long hiatus from standup, and just do TV and film work!

    The pressure is different than when she was up and coming, young, cute, and kinda or sometimes funny!

    But, she wants those Netflix or ShowTime Comedy Special dollars!

  • Mrs. S. O.

    She NOT ready ??

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    No one bought tickets!!??

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Yeah , nobody wanted to see her stale ass setup. Her standup routine is cringe.
