Black Twitter is going IN on Da Brat for defending stand-up comedians Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears against child abuse allegations.

A 22-year-old woman filed a lawsuit against the comics on Tuesday on behalf of her 15-year-old brother.

The plaintiffs, who are identified as Jane Doe and John Doe in the complaint, accused Haddish and Spears of making them perform sexual acts in several video skits without their mother’s knowledge or approval.

“I don’t believe it!” said Da Brat on Friday’s Rickey Smiley Morning Show.

“They’re tryna tarnish their image for some reason. I can’t see Tiffany Haddish do– I can’t even see Aries Spears doing something like this. They know what they have to lose. This is crazy! I hope that I’m right – that this is some crazy blogger with no life and just wants some attention, and this is gonna go away.”

Clearly, Da Brat didn’t view the disturbing video that’s currently making the rounds on Twitter.

In the video titled “Through a Pedophile’s Eyes,” John Doe, who was 7 at the time, plays with a toy while wearing only his underwear.

Spears stares at the boy through two eye holes cut out of a newspaper as R. Kelly’s hit song “Bump & Grind” plays in the background.

In other scenes, Spears rubs baby oil on the child’s back and bathes in a bathtub with the child.

the video titled “Through a Pedophile’s Eyes” was uploaded to “Funny or Die” in the site’s “user-generated content” section where it remained until Funny Or Die removed the video in 2018.

In a statement to TMZ, the comedy website wrote:

“Funny Or Die found this video absolutely disgusting and would never produce such content. We were not involved with the conceptualization, development, funding, or production of this video. It was uploaded to the site as user-generated content and was removed in 2018 immediately after becoming aware of its existence.”

Spears settled a lawsuit with the mother over the video in 2019. But Haddish refused to settle.

The settlement does not bind Jane or John from pursuing legal action against Haddish.

Haddish’s attorney, Andrew Brettler, called the lawsuit a “shakedown”, “frivolous” and “bogus”.

“[The plaintiff’s mother] has been trying to assert these bogus claims against Ms. Haddish for several years… Now, [the mother] has her adult daughter representing herself in this lawsuit. The two of them will together face the consequences of pursuing this frivolous action.”
