Tiffany Haddish gives acceptance speech at the 2018 Essence Black Women In Hollywood Awards Luncheo

A brazen thief made off with a gift bag that contained Tiffany Haddish's makeup kit and a Fendi bag belonging to her makeup artist, Dionne Wynn. The bags went missing at the 11th Annual ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Awards Gala held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills on Thursday.

The 38-year-old comedienne uploaded a video to late Thursday, pleading with the fan who took the bags to return the items, no questions asked.

"Hey y’all it’s me Tiffany Haddish. I just had to keep it 100 with you," the L.A. native began. "I had an awesome time at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood event, but here’s the thing, okay, me and my 'She Ready' team was taking pictures together and they had gave us gift bags. And my make-up artist had put her bag inside the gift bag and then the girl who said she was going to WATCH THE BAGS and not let nobody TAKE THE BAGS let somebody TAKE THE MOTHERF**KING BAGS!"

Haddish continued: "Now, my touch up make-up is in that bag. Okay? IDs is in that bag, cash is in that bag, and it’s a nice bag. And we won’t -- look, we ain’t tripping over money. WE WANT THE MOTHERF**KING MAKE-UP AND S**T!”

Someone sitting next to Haddish said, "And the Fendi bag!"

The actress responded, "And the Fendi bag that was in there!"

She added: "So if you was at the Black Women in Hollywood Essence event, check your gift bag and hit me back! Because we need that Fendi bag back. Thank you!"

The Girls Trip actress was just one of the black A-listers who took home an award at the star-studded event in Beverly Hills. She looked stunning in a multicolored, floor-length tassel skirt with matching gold sequined top from Alice Olivia's Spring/Summer 2018 collection.

  • Ni Ni

    Listen, that bag is gawn. It aint coming back.

  • Berry Melon

    From experience... thieves will steal anything and you will not get back your items... unless you hunt the thief down like the dog.

  • xenaD

  • justlooking

    That's too bad, a thief will steal your damn air. Horrible. I started carrying a change purse it attaches to my belt loop. That's not to stay they want try and take my pants off.

  • Phillybruh

    It was Monique hoping she left her Netflix contract in it. So she can say I'm only showing yall this because I love us for real.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Let it go Tiff. The only reason to record that is if you know who it is and you giving them a chance to return it before you turn them over to the po-po. Other than that, just buy some more make up and buy a new bag.

  • Rachel

    I hate to say this, but I’m tired of Tiffany. Her whole hood persona is too much. Anybody with common sense knows thieves don’t return nothing of value. Hollywood appears to be laughing at her and not with her.

  • Quitedeliteful

    (snicker...) Poor Monique...

  • ShelbyMoore

    I'm sorry y'all...this girl is obnoxious and she doesn't have the type of comedy that I like. She just as bad of Kevin Hart. Not feeling her at all.

  • Solstice

    Happy Friyay!! ???

  • Quitedeliteful

    What a downer to get your stuff stolen at an event but she doesn't seem too upset by it. Besides, if you steal something you always lose something of even greater value...

  • Solstice

    Non yielding bushes, ?crabgrass, weeds, rodents and reptilians!! ??? Love it! Good morning ?? lady! ???????

  • Soda

    I'm so sick of her Groupon commercials on YouTube that I'm thinking about buying their ad-free plan just to avoid her.?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    chile my dad say ninjas will steal a steel ball bolted to the ground .... ???? love my daddy

  • Dr. P

    #HiAuntie in my KillMonger voice lol

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Now you know good and darn well that Mo wasn't invited lol And all of Black Hollywood have been told to stay at least 50 yards away from her lol But on the real, let's leave Mo out of this one....

  • Kimberly King

    I don't like Tiffany. She's so loud and annoying. And the white people love her because you know they fetishize the "loud, ghetto, funny" black girl. Now she's begging for that Fendi bag, girl just buy another one !

  • Phillybruh

    I know she wasn't invited but the Mo jokes write themselves these days.

  • Phillybruh

    Say what you want about some women like that. They are the last at any company to be let go because they get along with every one important and outside of the fat quiet chick KNOW everything their is too know about that office. I love Tiffany.

  • Mia Said so

    Me Toooooo LOVE her. Loud and Ghetto i hate dont like when folks say that.

  • justlooking

    Hearts and Hugs

  • Kimberly King

    I get along with people at my job. I also happen to be from the hood, but I don't act like that. Try again. That loud, ghetto girl sh*t is played out. That's what THEY love. And she's playing into it.

  • Phillybruh

    You may think it is, but it clearly isn't. She is loud but her ghetto is not the typical ghetto.

  • Vonn

    Guess Fendi doesn't have a Groupon deal.

  • Marlika


  • jeniefrumdabloc™


  • SDot

    How do you take her serious?

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Nah buddy. I have *never* seen a Black woman like Tiffany *keep* a job lol And that's real. Most women with personalities like that are hair stylists or do something that doesn't require them to follow a lot of rules. Just like Haddish has picked up comedy.

  • Phillybruh

    I see it all the time. I see women who are all uppity get upset when they have to go ask them a questions about work, because they know their shit.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Your experience is known as an "anecdote". It does not speak for the whole. I know women like Tiffany but they aren't getting hired in corporate America. They won't even hire them in places like universities if they don't "tone it down". I have heard that white people call Black women who more than capable and non-ghetto, incompetent. Just imagine if they had Tiffany types working with/for them, they would all out disrespect them.

    Oh and I work in one of the Blackest cities, Chicago. I ain't never seen anybody act like Tiffany on the job lol Maybe in their private lives but def not on the job.

  • angrysolo

    i gave up trying once i realized she had portrayed herself in Girls Trip

  • Rayne

    Yup. You are correct. They are always the last to go. These types are very open and so honest with everyone they meet.

  • Phillybruh

    I suppose, I'll give you an example, my partner works an attorney for Comcast, a paralegal in his office is this type of personality and they love her to death why because she knows her shit and they all refer too her. I know plenty of jobs that hire women like this because they have the skills required to do the job. The white people aren't laughing at them, they are laughing with them as they laughing at you who think because they carry themselves like Wall Street that they can actually do the job. They hire white Tiffany Haddish's too.

  • Mister Fantastic

    You notice Tif took the place of NeNe as Hollywood's loud mouthed pet?

  • Applebootay

    SOme black fake woke azz people make me sick....never complain when white women act like that....some of us ARE loud just like some men....she's genuine and she's succeeding...stop acting like crabs in a barrel....I'm rooting for ER'BODY BLACK....especially the positive ones...moving in their light.....fvck the haters....

  • Applebootay

    So this is ALL assuming she acts like that in a corporate setting? I work at a prestigious (mostly white) University and the ONLY BLACK PERSON IN MY DEPARTMENT....I know how to wear the mask during the day.....all y'all sound foolish...."she picked up comedy??" WTF???? so you don't even know her story/background......I digress....the people calling out Tiffany for being loud and a sell out are actually what I would called indoctrinated house niggaz...FOH

  • Applebootay

    This is exactly my point, SHE DOESNT WORK FOR "the white man's Corporate America" where we are slaves on a plantation....She can be her true authentic self......I live in Chicago and work at a prestigious. Why TF is everyone assuming she wouldn't know how to tone it down???????? She's a comedian/actress....she's a celebrity....WTF are we expecting her to act like a corporate slave? These comments are really blowing me....people sound like they drink whatever koolaid the white media is giving yall to drink...SMDH

  • Applebum

    I kind of liked this chick after her Breakfast Club interview. But right after I started seeing some of her comedy specials, she’s really not funny. She’s just one way, she laugh at her own jokes before finishing them. She’s so annoying, ghetto, loud. Go away.

  • Applebootay

    Thank you ...I too work at have worked in ALL WHITE corporate America and I know how to carry myself....I'm the only Black in my department and I hold SHAT DOWN......Guess what....they REspect me and thats all that matters....Cause they calling me and the trained obedient, quiet, yessuh massuh...niggaz when they go it really doesn't matter....I'm articulate, I know how to deal with the stress and pressure, I'm leader and problem solver and my resume speaks for itself....I put the fvcking mask on 9-5.....when I go home...I take the mask off.....pour me a little Hennessy and coke and put on Real Housewives of ATL....

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Idk why you're so upset lol I literally wrote earlier that women like Tiffany usually are self-employed as hair stylists and the like. They usually do not work on the corporate plantation because they don't fit in. And yeah, many don't know how to tone it down or use their inside voices. Ain't nothing wrong with it if you can do your own thing.

  • blue skies

    chile u not gon get that bag bac

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    It sounds like you're doing *exactly* what I said most with flamboyant personalities do. They are super quiet and toned down at work but in their personal lives, they are completely different. It's code switching. Lots of Black folks do it. But some like Haddish don't know how.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Since you know Haddish so well and her background, please tell us what she's done previously and how "toned down" she was. Most entertainers will tell you they were fired from all their jobs because it wasn't for them. But apparently, you see her as just "acting" and her personality isn't genuine. So do tell us how she code switches.

    And I'm far from a "house" negro. But I am whatever you say I am because if I wasn't then why would you say I am lol

  • Enoughsaid2020

    I trust no one, bags stays with me, or its locked-up. SMH

  • Vegas1989

    She ain't getting that bag back....LOL...IT'S GONE like a baseball getting knocked out at Dodger Stadium.

  • Erin

    media buyer 20+, years in my career, been on my current job 6+ years, 6 figure salary, loud as fuck, from the hood and ain't never been nobody but who I am. And yes I say a'int and y'all at work. Sorry but your generalization is incorrect.

  • Applebootay


  • Applebootay

    Nooooooo....SIS....I checked you first for assuming you know her so well...Don't try to twist it back....LOL...Your whole comment......just throw it away.....none of it makes sense....Throw it all away and start over...

  • Erin

    the chick that talk the most shit about real women is usually the one mad at her because she gotta talk in a white voice to keep her job. When you are qualified and competent you can be yourself period! I don't have to fake to to make it. My resume, degree and brain makes up for my lip smacking, my bright nails, colored hair and occasional curse word in the office.

  • Applebootay

    Your point is what actually makes you look or seem silly and or immature...."women like Tiffany" "they usually" "many don't know how to tone it down" WHO? WTF? those statements are the mark of a indoctrinated slave....I am Tiffany and BLACK PROUD LOUD WOMEN LIKE US ARE VERY INTELLIGENT AND VERY SUCCESSFUL and are always CHOSEN.....because we know how to wear the mask... Imma get off you because one thing I've learned is to not argue with an indoctrinated slave....its already too late...

  • Vegas1989

    Thank You for saying this. She is following his footsteps laugh before she tells the joke.

  • NeverSurprised

    Yep. They love black women who behave in this manner -- loud, broken English, head-swiveling, profanity-spewing. It is the image that they will quickly promote.

  • Applebootay

    HOW TF do you know she don't know how? Doesn't her success speak to the fact that obviously she know how to secure the bag.....WTF is code switching? Did you just make that up to sound smart? LOL...LOG OFF....

  • OvertheMississippi

    Irrelevant, but I don't care for her!!

  • NaeNae2015

    I can't say I don't like her (yet) but a little tiffany goes a long way!!!

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Again, that's a personal anecdote of yours.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    You're so pressed at being right that you think that I am making up phrases lol. "Code-switching" is an actual term.

    noun - the practice of alternating between two or more languages or varieties of language in conversation.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    I talk like myself and I speak multiple languages. Sorry to disappoint you boo.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    You're beyond belligerent at this point. I never stated that women like Tiffany aren't successful in their own right. I stated that they are few and far between in corporate America.

    "Indoctrinated slave"? lol Really? And I sound silly and immature? And you're dead serious.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    You didn't check me on anything. I'm grown. Probably seen more than you and lived in more places than you. You sound belligerent but you got it.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    You're an "outlier", not the norm. Name how many others like you that you have come across in your industry? Don't worry, I'll wait.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    No one's checking for what white women are doing at work because we don't give a damn. We *all* don't have to like Haddish's form of comedy for you to enjoy it. A few people stating they don't vibe with her ain't going to stop her money, trust. What Black folks like you *need* to stop doing is cappin' for strangers you don't know while calling others "coons", "uncle tom's", "crabs", "house niggers" and "slaves". You're doing more damage. You're the true crab but don't see it.

    You're talking about "moving with light" & "positivity" and spewed every racial epithet that you could at me. Get the fuck outta here with that bullshit. You're a mess.

  • NeverSurprised

    “I know plenty of jobs that hire women like this because they have the skills required to do the job. The white people aren't laughing at them, they are laughing with them ...”

  • mona q

    Thank you....meanwhile, "outspoken" people like Mo'Nique are out here non-negotiating contracts and burning bridges but they say she is "real" and that Tiffany is a sell out. This crabs in a barrel mentality has to stop. I speak properly because that is how I was raised. I have worked in corporate legal departments, universities and courthouses...I've been promoted at EVERY job I've ever had...not because I kiss ass, not because I want to "fit in" with white people and play my role...but because I know my worth, I am good at what I do, I am professional and I carry myself like I am a professional, so therefore, i am treated as such. I teach my sons that there is a time and place to let your hair down and work is never it...I have worked with black women like Tiffany, white women like Tiffany, Asian women and Hispanic women like Tiffany...they were not talked about in front of me poorly...they were loved because of their big personalities...and they also added worth to the work environment by knowing their jobs. Clearly Tiffany is a humble spirit if you've watched her episode of Uncensored on TV One. I find that the women that are cringing and have so much negativity to say about her are USUALLY the women who allow white people to make racially insensitive jokes in front of them to show that they are not the angry black woman or that they are "different" from other black women. I will tell you one thing...someone else's personality doesn't make me look bad ever. As professional as I am, I am a black woman and I don't allow any bull sh1t. Once a white woman called me girlfriend and was trying to be "down" by always trying to show that she knew black slang and one day, I simply asked her in front of everyone why she was doing that...needless to say, she didn't do it again, she apologized and she showed me respect from that day forward and became one of my best friends - WITHOUT all that nonsense. She was only doing all of that because she thought that would show that she wasn't like all the "other" white people...shaking my damn ironic.

  • mona q

    SO true! I am hoping that it was just an oversight and the person who realized they had the items in their gift bag would give it back. There are still good people out in the world. I'm banking on it.

  • Trace da Ace

    cute skirt...and I got the same wig at home!! thats all I got...its friday and I'm running on E....

  • mona q

    I will agree with you that I do not like her comedy. I could barely get through the last comedy special I saw after she said she pooped in her boyfriend's Jordans. It was crass and cringeworthy. I'm interested to know what you think about Leslie Jones. I used to think she was loud and obnoxious too...I hated her comedy as well. What other black woman comedian is funny right now? I like Tiffany and Leslie now that I've seen a different side to them. I have a strong personality in a different way so I get that they aren't for everyone. I did enjoy when Tiffany was on Saturday Night live...only her monologue though...not the rest. It was awful and corny. Also, I kind of like when comedians laugh at their own jokes before they finish them...I don't makes me laugh more - if the joke is actually funny. It may just be her time. You know how they only allow a few black comedians to crossover to mainstream Hollywood. Her book is on the New York Best Seller's list which I haven't read either.

  • mona q

    That's how I've been using them! lol

  • Liah

    I agree...


    Tiffany is boring and NOT funny, and needs to know that at times foul language does not make a comedian........Glad she is rising tho.

  • Phillybruh

    If the young lady that works for my Partner is a para legal wouldn't she have some level of education?

  • Applebootay

    You still here? LOL....So here you go again...trying to have it both so you don't look talk shat first, then I come to defense, then I get blamed for doing what you did....Girl bye! You should ask Sandra if she's hiring.....she specializes in it....I see BS from a mile away......sorry not sorry....Throw this comment away with the other comment too

  • Applebootay

    But that doesn't apply to the context of the discussion...You're reaching....just replying to my won't win this're only proving my point...

  • Applebootay


  • Applebootay

    I was going for her hard in these comments and I don't think she's ALL that funny as a stand up but she's a great comedic actress, she is funny....I just think she is genuine and has a great personality and has overcome so many obstacles....she used humor to cope with living in foster care.....Why TF do we all have to be like some damn robots....I just get enraged....its like Willie Lynch at its finest...Its one thing to not like her comedy...but to get on here...talking shat....Girl....

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    I see you didn't do well in reading comprehension lol. Code-switching most def has to do with this convo. I was not reaching, nor was I just replying and I def don't argue with fools lol

  • Erin

    I work in Los Angeles there are many! We all don't boost and braid hair boo.

  • Erin

    AND I bet one of language is a fake white voice you use to put other black women down with. I'm used to your type. You are the type that was told the only way to make it is to "not act black" so when you see a successful "ghetto" girl you cringe because all your life you've been told to do the opposite.

  • Lapis


  • Lapis

    I have to agree. Going on 12 years for me. I’m so loud! However I can turn it on and off need be.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I would be nice....

    Tiffany next time wear a FAKE FENDI.

  • Roxie Moxie

    Honestly, she's already getting on my nerves. The comment she made about Beyonce being a Queen and she'd bow down to her, etc. WTF? She is human like everyone else and ALL she does is make music.That. About. It. Nothing new under the sun.

  • Ebony N’ Sweet

    That's a rookie mistake to lose your bag....Thats something teenagers do lol


    Black women in Hollywood luncheon and all they had going was a lost makeup bag and a comeout the closet speech...... CTFU Liberal Hollywood is a sad shell of its self.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    I applaud all Black women whether they are "successful" or not and whether they are "ghetto" or speak "white". Don't assume anything about anyone online.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Since when was doing hair or being a booster dishonorable boo? Check your biases at the door. I actually don't feel any negative way about the ghetto and self-employed. I come across more of them then people like you.

  • Michael Washington

    that last parthuuuuuuuuuuuurt....

    Im stealin it lol
