It feels like decades since Tiffany Haddish sparked the outrageous media frenzy known as #WhoBitBey. Though the comedian previously swore of the topic, and for all intents and purposes Beyoncé never addressed the incident, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Haddish revealed that the family of alleged chomper Sanaa Lathan was upset over the drama.
“I’m super good friends with her stepmom and her dad, and they were mad at me,” Haddish explains. “They were like, ‘Why would you do this to the family? You know, black actresses, you guys have to stick together, it’s so hard for you guys to get work as it is, why would you try to ruin her career?’ But I didn’t try to ruin her career. I never said her name! I was just trying to say how Beyoncé kept me from goin’ to jail that night. I coulda just shut my whole career down.”
It’s now widely understood that Lathan is probably the person #WhoBitBey, though she’s vehemently denied ever putting her teeth on Bey’s blessed face.
Elsewhere in the interview, Haddish addressed another controversy. Earlier this month, the Get Out star Lil Rel Howery called Tracy Morgan “one hating ass dude”after Morgan dodged questions about Haddish while being interviewed for his TBS show The Last O.G. by Vulture.
Haddish said there’s no hard feelings between her and Morgan, despite the heat from her former The Carmichael Show co-star. “He’s probably just tired of hearing my name. It’s exhausting. I’m tired of hearing my name,” she said of Morgan. “I could see how that could be irritating, like, ‘Hello, I died, people. I’m back from the dead. Tiffany’s cool, but it’s me sitting here now.’ So, I get it, I’m not mad about it, I love me some Tracy.”
