Katt Williams, Tiffany Haddish

Katt Williams dropped to his knees in submission deference to comedic actress Tiffany Haddish backstage at the Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday night.

The respect he showed to Haddish was surprising considering all the hateful comments he uttered on the Frank & Wanda In The Morning Show on V-103 in Atlanta on Friday.

Williams, 47, took several photos with Haddish backstage after they picked up their Emmys awards. In one photo uploaded to Haddish's Instagram page, Williams is seen on his knees in front of the Girls Trip star who won an Emmy for hosting Saturday Night Live.

Just last week, Williams said he was not impressed with Haddish's role in the hit comedy Girls Trip. He said Haddish did not write the movie -- she was only handed a script to read.

"I'm a writer. I don't care about what you read," he told Frank Ski and Wanda Smith.

"When did ghetto become marketable?" Williams asked. "They like [Haddish] because she slept with a white man," he added.

Videos of the tense exchange between Smith and Williams went viral on social media, garnering millions of views.

  • hi-liter

    Katt Bipolar arse is full of shat.

  • Elevated Soul

    Katt Williams stated that he had nothing against Tiffany Haddish. He even helped her out just as he has helped others.

    He was speaking up for the women who have been on their grind for years,who were and are overlooked.that's all. After I heard what he said,I heard nothing but truth.

    Bottom line is that Wanda Smith is a lame and so is her insecure husband.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    He’s a sh*t starter. Seems like he needs to be “reprogrammed” he’s malfunctioning.

  • taurus_32

    He’s bipolar what do people expect ?????

  • Trace da Ace

    I keep telling yall that Katt is on that shit.....AND he has some screws loose....so add that up and BINGO....there you have it....

    hell I'm glad that she won...along with all of the other black actors!

    ps...and lemme find out Katt a little salty...cause he is where he is at and others are doing better than him.....

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Of course he did LOL.

    In the V103 interview he even said he’s known her for a long time.

    Let’s talk about his attire though. Wtf he got on? A Nike booksock?

  • tia

    Awww how gracious of him. However, where was the lie? He spoke nothing but facts. Congrats to Katt and Tiffany!!

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    well what else was he to do? he won/she won/they're winners!
    he can rekindle his hatin' at a later date (and put them both back in the spotlight), but as for now, they're both #winning -- biggest loser is Wanda, smh.

  • Blue

    That statue is bigger than he is. That's all I got.

  • TriniHarlem

    My sole problem with this generation of thinking is that you can't have an opposed view and not be looked at as crazy or hater etc. That's super silly and close minded. I can not like what you did or how you come up but totally like you. It's literally called being an individual. Now the delivery might need help but the message is clear.

  • LoneWolf1986

    Like Katt said in that interview, he sells out Phillips arena, she's at an out of the way comedy club in Norcross. Now he got some hardware, and Wanda ain't got nothing but fatter.

  • LoneWolf1986

    Katt is the truth.

  • the guest

    Katt Wiliams is no phony.

    He keeps it real and raw.

    With his shade and his love.

    He's the friend that loves you but tells you about yourself.

    He's a devoted loving dad.

    An advocate for black comedians and talent.

    And a gentleman.

  • Coy little wink

    U can win an Emmy for hosting SNL...who knew

  • Coy little wink

    She looking like...now what was you saying about me again?

  • dru and neil

    I guess it’s a bit harder to bad mouth someone when they are actually in your presence, becasue he was so put off by Tiffany Haddish a few days ago he couldn’t even stand to hear anyone else praise her. It literally triggered him.

  • Yvonne79

    She still ain't funny **shrugs**

  • iWasteTime

    Have that same energy, sir.
    Don't bow down now.
    You can not like me without disrespecting me. Katt disrespected everyone he spoke about once he spoke about things outside of comedy

  • the guest

    Love all the Nike representation.

    Kaep is going to be a very successful elected official and leader one day. He's going to make a huge difference in football but he has a much bigger purpose than football.

    That Nike Ad will be a brilliant campaign endorsement.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    In 20 years all his naysayers will admire him, just as they did to Ali.

  • SpiceGirl

    Uplift one another people.....

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yup...for hosting

  • Wreckognize Game

    I agree.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Maybe he can guide and teach her...because wether he bowed down or not.......SHE'S JUST NOT FUNNY......at all.

  • Kimocha

    Yea... she's not funny and needs help.. I totally agree.

  • Kimocha

    I get soooo tired of hearing.... "She Ready" in that annoying voice!.... Smdh

  • Rayne

    He said what he said and I know there are way funnier comediennes than tif. It’s just not their time right now kat. He is a humble dude and I see he wants to put everybody on but that can’t happen at one time. I love kat and tif is alright.

  • Li-Wright

    And Tiff still has a smile on her face. Good vibes, good positivity will get you further than negatives and foul mouth.

  • Li-Wright

    She's funny on film. she has 3 movies coming out and I predict she's going to be a hot commodity. Melissa McCarthy is on the downslide and Tiff is UP.

  • TheWildChild

    I've always heard that Katt is very intelligent and was a honor student in his hey day. He's been a very successful writer and business man as well. But, tell me how his batshyt crazy AF azz manage to adopt 6 kids?.... I bet he's damn crazy good father tho. ?...but that one incident at Barry Hankersons home (Gladys Knight's ex) just had me baffled AF ? the whole shingding with the son.

  • hi-liter

    Did anyone see Teddy Perkins, the character from Atlanta show at the Emmy's...... I thought he was played by Donald Glover.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    right. he was being gracious, and doing anything else would have made him look like the lesser person.

    sometimes you gotta be 'crazy' like a fox, LOL!

  • Alextra Ballard

    It's one thing maybe to pull a person aside and to personally apologize or say whateva,but to bow-down is extreme. Katt didn't do a fact check when it came to Haddish pass,but one thing that is factual and will remain a fact is Haddish is not funny. She still loud,annoying and at time str8 Rachett. That does not take away from her Emmy win.

  • Applebootay

    Stop reframing what he said and taking it out of context. He was responding to questions not bashing her. Anyway, on TMZ he said Wanda Sykes got him together and that's why he showed her respect at the Emmys. Katt that real Ni@@ah!

  • iWasteTime

    He was sitting next to Yvonne and Issa ... lol
    Maybe it is a mask but he was played by DG on the show.

  • FukkFolks2018

    A lot of folks don't like Wanda either. I like her a lot too

  • hi-liter

    Yeah, I think Donald Glover came as Teddy Perkins, I guess just in case he won the Emmy. Such a creepy MJ like character.


    The Media only puts out what they want you to see


    Bloop, can’t be my friend if you can’t keep it real with me, cause trust and believe I’m going to keep it real with you

  • We Can Do This

    Everyone's humor is different. There's a comedian for every laugh.

  • hi-liter

    Is "being real" talking about/telling jokes about people and then kissing they azz when you see them, is that what's really good? Tiffany wasn't too salty about it so Katt had to be joking.

  • http://www.blackartshoppe.com Nyla x BlackArtShoppe.com

    I believe this photo is taken out of context

  • Truth Or Die

    It was all a fake ritual hazing, Katt and Haddish answer to the same master. The masses are beyond gullible...

  • SpillyNillie

    Oh I thought he was buckling her shoe...who knew!

  • deidre martin

    yea they both said there ws never a problem.

  • Applebootay

    The only one that made it a problem were bloggers and the media.

  • kennedy220

    or she is funny to people that relate to her...I personally think she's funnier than Kat ..he can get a few chuckles out of me..but hey everyones sense of humor is different..mabye someone else telling his jokes would work for me

  • hottlanta

    His money is longer than the statue n his height.

  • MsVAllDay

    I was wondering if it was just me. I mean I thought Girl's Trip was funny and all. I loved going to see the movie with my sister and there was some funny moments, but overall I don't love her and there were several scenes in the movie that just got ghetto at some point and stopped being funny to me. She just doesn't do it for me. Sry not sry. Glad I'm not alone.

  • free

    now you know what happens when you talk about his attire lol. that look before he opened up his suit jacket should go down in history.

  • tia

    He's the type of person you want in your corner!! Proud of him.

  • tia

    Exactly!! Lol!!

  • Lee

    When did ghetto become marketable? Asks the grown ass man who calls himself a pimp, wears a perm and won an Emmy playing a hood dude with an alligator. ???

  • Logan Roberts

    Congrats to both. Tiffany still not funny to me. Katt is allowed to speak his mind just like everybody else. I'm pretty sure normal people talk crap about their coworkers & peers everyday.

  • Renee26

    I hope she told him to take a long whiff while he was down there since he had ao much to say about her cooch in his interview

  • Renee26

    That's 19inches of natural hair chile.... He measured it from his scalp

  • Kimocha

    Crackin uuuup!!!

  • Lee


  • Renee26

    It was Donald

  • SunSoy

    She is still loud and ghetto that is her act.

  • Renee26

    Money talks so his arrest record didn't stop the process... he adopted kids that were hard to place due to age. He has some crazy ways but yes he's a smart man and is one of those parents who don't play. I think the son was puffing his chest out and Katt responded in hood parent form.... My house my rules type ish

  • Renee26

    Exactly... He sounded very crabby in that interview

  • Kbellaluvvs

    Red Grant so under valued...He is one of the sweetest humble comics I have ever met..

  • T Willis


  • T Willis

    Naw, Katt is FUNNY. I’m not even a long time fan, but, I caught his special on Netflix and dude had me in tears! I watched Tiffany on SNL and a few of her hosting things and ole girl is cringe worthy on a coonery scale of ?

  • T Willis

    That makes me admire and respect him even more. For adopting kids that are usually hard to place - so they don’t grow up in the system.

  • Quitedeliteful


  • T Willis

    Yeah I don’t think Tiffany is a comedian - but I do think she has great comedic timing - ala Jada Pinkett-Smith in the 90s. Cause y’all know Jada had some ratchet ass roles before she settled in married and Scientology life.

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Quitedeliteful


  • Quitedeliteful


  • T Willis

    I don’t understand how she beat out anyone in hosting. Her episode was horrible. I couldn’t even get passed her opening

  • T Willis


  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I bout fell out

  • Coy little wink

    I didn't see it...did she tackle some tough issues in the skits? Anyone?

  • Quitedeliteful

    I'm glad these two are not going to be at each others throats over this petty stuff. Hopefully they will work together in the future...

  • A D N

    He should apologize to everyone involved...even the listeners because the energy he gave in the interview was too much. But when he apologizes, do it in a humorous way...saying...well, don't yall call me crazy lol. And that should end everything.

  • speakinmymind

    Renee...pack it up and leave. ????

  • A D N

    Katt W is 1/2 right. It's the script that made her funny in the movie. But not anyone can play the part. She had something "special" for the role and delivered. And YES he is FUNNY. I rediscovered Katt on Netflix a month ago doing standup.

  • Nik

    LMBO! You are crazy!??????

  • speakinmymind

    Freeeee...stop it...the memory...I'm weak?????

  • Calikush

    Bingo!!!!! I think so too!

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!


  • A D N

    Tiffany is showing us how to react to drama...unbothered and keeping smiling. Now Wanda Smith, please learn from a pro. I wish I was in your circle to give you another perspective on how to react to "drama". You are a comedian dear. You should have returned to the station yesterday with a big "L" on a shirt and laughed with everyone. Don't ever allow your feelings to get that involved in a professional setting. You could have used that experience to your advantage. Have you heard of the roast shows? I understand Katt's spirit is what you reacted to and was surprised by. But after you left and went home, your feelings are secondary to the reality of you two are comedians on air. It's not too late to resolve this. Call Katt, apologize to him on camera. Tell him he's the real pro. And ask him if you could go out on tour with him. When he says no or surprisingly yes, report that on air. Gurl, it's not that big where your husband gets involved or you crying too long. USE IT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE. You got roasted by KATT WILLIAMS! KATT EMMY winner WILLIAMS. He roasts only those that matter. And you matter! You lucky he doesn't charge you for the career boost lol. Good luck and yall apologize to Katt Williams and let this go.

  • Calikush

    Yaaaassss.....Tell em’!!!!!!! ?

  • A D N

    That's probably why he brought up her name so he could "smell" what made her so popular...since that's her claim to fame and not her jokes.

  • A D N

    They are usually the funny ones...Martin Lawrence, Katt Williams...

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I think people are getting way too worked up over this.
    Obviously she's not holding a grudge over it, so why should we?

  • Tiffany Miller

    Well... he obviously wants to continue to work. And maybe he did feel bad about saying it to some degree.

  • lovelygamour

    i think he did that because he doesnt want to look like he has a problem with black women.

    has he ever shown colorism? i dont think so. if its true he hasnt then it probably got to him that people thought he was racists toward wanda.

    why is tiffany haddish successful. because she is one of them. she grew up in groundlings and laugh factory. they know her. so kat was right. she didnt really need to break in. i however dont think its because of a white man.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    True, there's so much negativity and strife among some of these entertainers nowadays, that it's refreshing to see 2 people just squash the situation quicky and move on from it. A lot of people could learn from their example.

  • imright

    when the check clears....

  • Guess Who

    Uh....he's got severe mental issues and she stay shucking and jiving for whites. They need to date! LOL.

  • Renee26

    ? right... It was the sex with yt men who got her where she is let him tell it

  • Renee26

    He said it ?

  • Renee26

    ? ? ?

  • Renee26


  • Renee26

    Yup that's what weed he smokes... Lol

  • Connie

    You better tell it! My 26 year old daughter said, "didn't Katt buss come from his stereotype pimp character Money Mike?" So what if she used ratchet, ghetto stereotype for her come up?

  • Connie

    I didn't know he adopted those kids. Does he have any biologically?

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I guess.
    She did not come for his neck when she responded to his review of her talent. Black man showing respect to a Black woman. I approve this picture.

  • Renee26

    I don't think so... He works hard to keep them outta the spotlight

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Define "better"? He's already did what others are doing now.....

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    He adopted all of them long before he started getting arrested repeatedly and before he started using drugs heavily.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    What was there to fact check? She's not funny and we don't know any of her jokes.... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8a2f1bed5532055c9b54b0eb8231707eef7d7e8f8574905e2b7cc4d813087609.gif

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Throughout his V-103 interview, he stated that he was happy for Tiffany BUT that she was not as deserving as other female comedians. Everybody agrees with this. He also stated how he introduced her on her first movie. I don't think this was him kissing her ass but I do think he's a tad bit bipolar.

  • Renee26

    Ok ok... Considering he was never convicted of anything it may not have mattered if he adopted afterwards. Ion know about heavy drug use only weed... What else had you heard??

  • kennedy220

    He just doesn't do it for me

  • Lee

    I'm trying to figure out which one of his characters WASN'T hood.. did you conveniently forget why you just got this Emmy??

  • Malcom Flex

    Oh come on Katt. I rode for you last time now this? You just as bipolar as Kanye!

  • Anji

    I know one of his son's and he is well-spoken and a young gentleman. Very smart like his dad. I have a genius, bipolar niece who is also a great parent.

  • Peppermint Patty

    Or just her voice in general...I wasnt a fan LONG before girls trip and I'm still not nor will I ever be.

  • the guest

    I said on this blog over a year ago that he's this generation's Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali. And no one agreed with me. I still believe it.

  • the guest


  • GuestSTAR

    I think he was trying to subliminally embarrass her. His feelings about her comedic ability didn't change in 3 days. He still feels she's garbage, he was trying to be funny in this pic.

  • Jussjess25

    Yall fall for everything.. yall know katt is a psycho ?. Next!

  • Shamwow

    Seriously No one has yet to step up to say it wasn’t true though. Just like when there’s family sex abuse and the one niece speaks up. Family will get upset and treat her bad for letting out the family business. Comedians probably told him during these racist times we have to stick together. Yada yada

  • Rhyme and Reason

    You're right! He was smart to SEEMINGLY backtrack!

    Tiffany has been around for a long time, and she was known in such comedy establishments. I always tried to like her standup, but it's wasn't really funny, not that she didn't have some good jokes from time to time, she's not the only one either!

    Katt was right!

    I do like that she came out of Foster Care (inspiration for others), and persevered until she made it, and she probably never thought in the beginning that film [Girls' Trip] was going to make her a superstar!


    He won an Emmy .... He keeps it 100... What did he get wrong ? lol Hollywood always gets that 1 black person and over dose everybody on them.

  • Tell the truth

    Yawn ??

  • TransMichelle

    Williams is a very troubled person just like most of the Emmy crowd there. I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't leave this earth in a year or two.

  • TransMichelle


  • plumkin999

    crack is wack

  • Chocolategyrl

    Katt Williams really has the audacity to refer to someone as ghetto,lmao wth he think his career has been based and survived off of?

  • primadutch

    And she's still not funny...ijs.

  • Sassie

    I would've kneed his ass in the nose....ninja, get yo dumb ass up...u said what u said now u wanna bow down. F&!! you! And Tiffany is NOT funny, but that's besides the damn point!

  • Sassie

    His energy SUCKED that entire interview. I agree.

  • Sassie


  • Sassie

    What do you REALLY think the photo is showing, then? I'm curious....

  • Browneyes

    Katt is funny. For all we know this was all a publicity stunt

  • TheOwley

    This was a 'don't have the illuminati kill me please."

  • Li-Wright

    Melissa mccarthy like I wrote above is funny on film. I don't think she's ever done standup. There are a lot of funny women on film (Lucille Ball); they don't have to do standup.

  • http://crimsonhairextensions.bigcartel.com/ http://crimsonhairextensions.b

    Yep. The elites were NOT happy with him... He didn’t want to this, he HAD to.
