Tracy Morgan recently did an interview discussing his TBS hit “The Last O.G.” Some of his comments when asked about his co-star Tiffany Haddish has landed him in hot water.
During an interview for Vulture, Tracy was asked how he felt about Tiffany Haddish and the fact that she’s been blowing up lately.
The comedian responded: “We’re not going to go there, because Tiffany is not the only one. This is Tracy Morgan, ‘The Last O.G. So if you’re going to ask that about Tiffany, ask that about [their co-star Cedric the Entertainer] and ask that about craft services . . . Everyone that comes to work every day on that show. I love Tiffany, but how I run my set is different.”
Ouch. Tracy may not have realized how harsh that seemed at the moment because he’s angered quite a few of Tiffany’s fans — including Lil Rel Howery who starred alongside Haddish in “The Carmichael Show.”
Rel tweeted: “This is one hating a** dude right here. That show would be nothing if @TiffanyHaddish wasn’t on it . . . Don’t bite the hand that keeps you relevant!!!”
Cedric the Entertainer also chimed in on the drama. The legendary actor doesn’t think that Tracy was hating on the “Girls Trip” star.
“Naw, he wasn’t hating. This is Tracy’s comeback, you know, he’s been working on this show a long time. He’s doing interviews. Tiffany’s hot. When you get in these interviews and people want to ask you the same questions over and over again.. that could have been one of many interviews Tracy did that day…they keep asking about Tiffany. Like ‘Yo, we ain’t talkin’ about Tiffany we talkin’ about my show.’ It wasn’t no hate like that,” Cedric told TMZ.
He continued to say that people should give Morgan a pass because it wasn’t a malicious comment.
What do you think about this newfound beef?
