Tiffany Haddish Tells PETA She Will Stop Wearing Fur When The Police ‘Stop Killing Black People’

Tiffany Haddish seems to be ready to protect social injustice and the police-involved shootings of Black folks in a very unusual way… but animals lovers are not here for it.

The comedian took to her Instagram page following a show at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles and informed her 4.4 million followers that a fan had given her a fur coat. As such, she claimed she’s going to wear fur “every day” until police stop killing Black people.

“Hey guys, it’s me, Tiffany Haddish,” she began the video clip. “I just want to give a shout out and a thank you to one of my fans that were here at the comedy store tonight who gave me this beautiful jacket. Now she wasn’t planning on it but she said she loved me and I was like, ‘If you really love me, let me have your jacket.’ And she did. So thank you so much boo. I’ma wear it as much as possible because, I don’t know if you guys know this about me but I’m ‘bout to start protesting.”

The Girls Trip star then addressed animal rights group PETA.

“I’ma wear fur every day until they stop killing black people,” she said. “When the police stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur. It’s my new protest.‘So sorry Peta! Don’t be mad at me! Be mad at the police. When they stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur.”

The actress added, “See how that go? ‘Cos people are important. And so are the animals. To keep me warm.”

Haddish ended the Instagram video with a bit of humor: “Thank you boo, I love you for loving me, this lil raccoon is so cute. I look good in this raccoon.”

Peta has yet to respond to her comments, but many social media users are outraged.

Twitter user Janelle Potter wrote: @TiffanyHaddish is vile, ignorant, and backwards. Harming animals to seek justice for black people makes sense how? She’s no better than the police if she stoops to their level. #AnimalRights #compassion

A police officer noted that the was “offended” by the video: “I offended by this. I am a police officer and have been for little over 13 years and I don’t wanna be placed in a category or have a bad light on me all the time because I am a white officer and I work in a predominantly black community. I would really like for you to come and do a ride along with me one day at work and ride along side me in my patrol car so I can take you around and show you what I do.”

Another user said “this is the DUMBEST SH*T I’ve ever heard” and, like many, questioned why protesting injustice has to involve the “killing of animals.”

Nerdy Chick wrote: “The slaughter of innocent animals literally has nothing to do with cops being trigger happy.”

Another commenter noted: “What a very arrogant and heartless thing to say – of course it’s warm, it’s the skin of an animal.”

Haddish had a few defenders, such as VintageEliz who said: “Not arrogant, just an honest response to what I assume was an honest question. People have been wearing animal skins for literally thousands of years. Were Native Americans heartless too, for wearing and trading animal products?”

Not arrogant, just an honest response to what I assume was an honest question. People have been wearing animal skins for literally thousands of years. Were Native Americans heartless too, for wearing and trading animal products?

And Katybeth Davis‏ pointed out that @TiffanyHaddish is just trying to bring some awareness to #blacklivesmatter… the NFL players kneeling was a bust…Basically if you care about animals getting killed for fashion you should care about black people losing their loved ones to police violence”.

Lmao, a vegetarian AND very active in the civil Rights community and she sounds dumb ignorant asf. Can literally care about both. If you don’t wanna support animal rights whatever but don’t try and compare it to civil Rights. Ignorant.

I understand her point. The same anger and hostility you PEOPLE have for ANIMALS should first be directed for the protection of PEOPLE! Very simple analogy. If you think harming an animal is important because of their vulnerability, where are you when a BLACK or BROWN person is harmed? Right on Tiffany! And to those who cannot understand that and miss a hierarchical call shame on you!

PETA is a primarily organization of white people that don’t care what happens to people of color. They’re sole concern is animals.

Love this comparrison…makes you think about what matters most to humans..

HUMAN LIFE AND DIGNITY, and for anyone with a brain, stopping senseless violence that affects Black People, at the hands of Law Enforcement SHOULD AT LEAST BE MORE OFFENSIVE THAN A DAMNED FUR COAT.

SHE DIDN’T KILL IT, THIS IS ALL AFTER THE FACT.

YOU GO GIRL, MAKE EM THINK…

IT IS A PERSONAL PREFERENCE

SHE AND I PREFER FOR BLACK FOLKS TO STAY ALIVE..

SHAME ON YOU FOR NOT GIVING A FUC✊🏿🎯👈🏾💯

The statement sounds kinda dyslexic when you really think about it. Most people think she was saying I will protest one thing until you recognize the other (which in and of itself is like huh). I think she mean’t it exactly like how she said it. I will continue to be complicit in one killing until you stop the other killing (which negates the validity of your initial point). If your point is against killing. I think her point was I am against death period but she didn’t realize she was contradicting her initial statement with the second statement. LOL! SMH

It’s clear you see no value in black people being alive. A person’s life should be much more valuable to another person than that of an animal’s. Yet you glean right over the main focus.

No, she is saying that black people are more important than animals. PETA should show at least the same concern.

The moment you realize people are more concerned about animals than human life.

You’re silent about Black lives but offended by rat lives. Essentially saying an minority is less valuable/ important than a dog.

Wear what you want! Live your life! I agree with Tiffany Haddish. She understands that cops killing blacks will never cease, it’s been going on years. I dont have to defend why I agree, I just do! It’s so easy for people to degrade another person’s choice or beliefs, yet defend why their views are right while name calling! Spend the money you earn your way!

I get it… I’m just as infuriated. But is she really saying “keep skinning animals alive and killing them. I don’t care. Because there is a certain group of people who don’t care about my people.” Isn’t that the attitude that keeps us in this selfish go-round where people only care about there own? How will there ever be any progress? I live what I believe, I don’t eat animals or wear them, just like I wouldn’t want anyone to skin, wear, or eat black people 🤷🏽‍♀️

How about instead of arguing and accusing races of things we just do the right thing. How about we stop wearing animal fur because killing millions of animals bred in captivity under horrendous conditions for fur is pretty bad. I don’t care what the natives americans did. They lived off the land to get that fur so the comparison today doesn’t make sense. Im tired of people talking about white people taking away land from Native Americans like if it happened yesterday. Shit happens. Imperialism happened all the damn time. If you have the fire power and the military and you can do pretty much whatever you want. Yes the slaughtering of natives was a massacre but you can’t change what already happened. Also yes police need to stop killing blacks. Me being half black half white I don’t want that fear of not being able to trust a cop because he might kill me. Also we need to fix black on black crime. We blacks need to focus on more than just one thing. Everytime a white cop kills a black person it’s an outcry but if a black person murders another black it’s just an everyday thing. Come on now! How are we supposed to survive if you get mad at one thing but bat an eye at the next. All people need to come together and we need to stop condemning races and condemn the people.

Black on black crime was created by white people. It has nothing to do with being assassinated by a cop.

Theres a big difference when you take an oath to serve and protect but all you do is serve our brains on the concrete when Junebug didn’t take an oath and he’s retaliating against whatever……no oath and not being paid as a public officer. you saying june bug should be held to the same standard as an officer who informs law? then he should be held accountable when he commit a murder like June Bug…..which never seems to happen, thus the outrage!!

My thing is this no body had a problem when back in the day white women flaunted furs as if was a badge, and killed animals for food. Still killing animals for food so what’s the difference in Tiffany fighting for her cause. These days everybody has a cause, so why don’t we all just do us. Get Trump out of the White House now that’s a cause we all should be fighting for.

I love it. People are more outraged about the killing of a dog than they are the killing of a person of color. It’s a sad state of affairs that an animal has more rights than a human, but only if that human has brown skin. Because of that human is white they get to go out and hunt brown skin people and animals for sport.

These comments are crazy though some my not like her presentation anyone with good sense can see the point… there is more value on the lives of animals than humans… some of you guys proved her point.

What an ignorant little twat. You want to wear fur, just wear it. Using police shootings to justify is a lame attempt to stay on the side of the politically correct. Just own what you do without the rationalizing. .
