Tiffany Haddish and social media influencers are catching heat for “bullying” a young female doctor who disputed their Covid-19 conspiracy theories.
According to multiple reports, the unidentified doctor was bullied on the app “Clubhouse” by the comedienne and social media influencers with over 1 million followers each, such as Jason Lee, Joe Budden, and Instagram activist Chaka Bars.
Clubhouse is an invitation-only audio-chat that allows users to create private rooms.
Haddish, Budden, and Chaka Bars reportedly harassed several Black doctors on January 13, and even doxxed the doctors by sharing their personal information online.
The doctors were disputing conspiracy theories being spread by Haddish and others. Among the conspiracy theories is the government invented Covid-19 and social distancing to make it easier for satellites to do facial recognition.
Hours before the doctor was admitted to a hospital for attempted suicide, her friends took to social media to call out the celebrities.
One user tweeted: “Hey @joinClubhouse – there is a room called ‘CH Bullying’ full of celebrities and conspiracy theorists who are plotting to dox several black doctors by sharing their social media accounts to several thousand people. Can you please step in? #CHBullying.”
Another user wrote: “Chakabars, Tiffany Haddish, Jason Lee and other ‘celebrities’ are plotting in a clubhouse room to take down a young black woman doctor and they even said ‘ruin her life’. They are sharing her details in a group chat. How is this allowed @joinClubhouse? #chbullying.”
Haddish responded to the allegations on her Twitter account. The “Girls Trip” actress claimed she was exercising her freedom of speech about Covid-19. She wrote, “Now People on clubhouse saying I am bullying because I just told the truth.”
Haddish defended her actions, saying, “There is a special place in Gods Kingdom for people that like to lie and make up stories on other people. Funny how some people can’t handle the truth!”
