The 'Like a Boss' actress faces backlash after sharing a video of her sitting in business class on her way to Israel 'to learn and see with [her] own eyes' amid the ongoing Israel-Palestine war.

AceShowbiz - Tiffany Haddish has angered people with her trip to Israel amid its ongoing conflict with Hamas. The actress has been trending on social media after she revealed that she's traveling to the Middle East country for what she called an "educational trip" amid the country's war with Palestine.

On Tuesday, February 20, the 44-year-old went live on Instagram and showed her sitting in business class in a plane. The comedian, who found out she was Jewish later in life and had her Bar Mitzvah at 40, joked, "I'm gonna go meet my future man out there. I'm out. I'm going to the Holy Land. I suggest you all do it."

"Why go? Why not go?" she said to the camera. Holding a drink in her hand, she claimed, "This is orange juice, it's not a mimosa. Champagne gives me gas. I would never do that to these people."

Tiffany looked excited as she sang her own made-up tune and told viewers her plans, "On my way to Tel Aviv, then to Jerusalem. Then I'm going to the Dead Sea and goin' get me some. Gonna have some fun, yeah. It's gonna be great. Then I'm gonna learn about the politics, ay."

The "Girls Trip" star said she's traveling to Israel "to learn and see with my own eyes" because she doesn't believe what she read on the Internet. "I'm gonna see with my own eyes," she added.

"Who said I wasn't going to Gaza?" she responded to a fan's comment on the Live. "I said I'm going to go see with my own eyes. Gotta go to Israel first." She went on asking, "And isn't Gaza in Israel? Ain't it all on the same continent, the same little piece of land and surrounded by water?"

When asked if her trip was for "vacation or work," Tiffany claimed it was for a "history lesson." She explained, "This is sociology. This is an educational trip for me. I want to go get educated. I want to see what's really going on. I want to learn how it started, why it started."

"I want to see where Jesus walked," the funnywoman, who has been arrested for DUI twice, continued. "I want to see all the stuff everywhere they talked about in the Bible. I want to see all that. So if it's in the Bible, I'm probably gonna be there."

Sorry, the video has been removed.

Tiffany, who posted the video on her feed, quickly came under fire for her "insensitive" and "tone deaf" trip. "Gotta be the most insensitive and ignorant a** thing I've seen," one person commented on the video.

A shocked follower wrote, "Really Tiff?! wow, honestly there so much I could say but damn this is heartbreaking, you are not a safe space and your instincts are inherently flawed and dangerous." Fuming, a third added, "What in the actual f**k. Take your a** to Gaza and see and learn over there."

A fourth critic pointed out, "The fact you can fly and 'holiday' in Israel but Gaza is pretty much destroyed gives you all the information you really need. This isn't a war, it's genocide." One other boycotted her as writing, "Yeah I'm out. You're on the wrong side of history," adding the hashtag, #FREEPALESTINE.
