AceShowbiz - Tiffany Haddish has had enough. The former star of "The Last O.G." has said that she actually feels "relieved" after the troubled skit titled "Through a Pedophile's Eyes" surfaced online amid child grooming lawsuit.
In a quick interview with Hollywood Unlocked on Tuesday, September 6, the 42-year-old comedienne told the outlet that she's extremely "relieved" that this has all come forth as she had enough of being threatened by this. "I wanted to take responsibility and I was tired of being extorted," she stated.
Tiffany's statement came shortly after a woman, who accused Tiffany and fellow comedian Aries Spears of grooming her and her younger brother and coercing them into filming sexually explicit skits when they were children, urged the district attorney of Los Angeles to "arrest and prosecute" the alleged child abusers immediately for their alleged actions.
"This matter's breadth and complexity require your jurisdictional powers and resources to tackle and end the stream (of) depravity committed by Haddish and Spears," Jane Doe, who claimed that she and her younger sibling have developed debilitating social disorders, wrote in a letter sent to Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon on Monday, September 5. "My brother and I are prepared to speak with investigators and prosecutors from your office and provide you with irrefutable evidence that substantiates our allegations," she said.
That same day, Tiffany released a statement on her Instagram page, noting that she regretted having agreed to act in the disturbing skit. "I know people have a bunch of questions. I get it. I'm right there with you," she wrote. "Unfortunately because there is an ongoing legal case, there's very little that I can say right now."
Tiffany further stated, "Clearly, while this sketch was intended to be comedic, it wasn't funny at all." The "Girls Trip" star went on to say, "I deeply regret having agreed to act in it," before concluding her post as writing, "I really look forward to being able to share a lot more about this situation as soon as I can."
The pedo sketch in question showed a woman who repeatedly left her child alone with a man who lusted after him. There were also scenes of the child wearing minimal clothing, including being in a bathtub as Aries' character watched on before getting in. There was a part when lotion got involved and when Aries was looking at the boy, R. Kelly's "Bump & Grind" would play in the background.
