Tiffany Haddish ‘Deeply Regrets’ Being A Part Of ‘Pedophile’ Skit

Tiffany Haddish has broken her silence days after she and Aries Spears were accused of grooming and molesting two siblings in a new lawsuit.

The Lawsuit

According to the lawsuit, Tiffany and Aries groomed a 14-year-old girl and her 7-year-old brother and made them film explicit skits.

The suit claims Tiffany and Aries molested the 7-year-old boy at a home while filming a “Funny or Die” video titled, “The Mind of a Pedophile.”

Jane Doe claims that Tiffany taught her how to mimic fellatio for a skit when she was 14 years old.

“Haddish verbally explained what was expected of Plaintiff Jane Doe and then showed Plaintiff Jane Doe how to give fellatio, including movements, noises, moaning, and groaning,” the lawsuit states. 

The siblings claim Tiffany was friends with their mother and the video featuring the 7-year-old boy was published online through “Funny or Die” when he was too young to consent.

Both siblings claim they have developed social disorders.

Jane says her trauma has prevented her from dating because she’s afraid she will be taken advantage of and “led down a path of false trust like the path that Haddish led her down.”

John Doe claims he places band-aids over all the cameras on his electronics because he is so afraid of being watched.

The siblings are suing Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears for damages following their mother’s failed attempt to reach a $15,000 settlement with Spears over the molestation video.

The Funny Or Die Skit

A “Funny or Die” skit titled, “The Mind of a Pedophile,” is one of the videos at the heart of the lawsuit.

Portions of the video are still floating around the world wide web and it is downright disgusting and extremely uncomfortable to watch.

Aries Spears is playing the role of “Uncle Pete” and Tiffany Haddish is a mother who asks him on multiple occasions to watch her son, T.J. (presumably John Doe in the lawsuit).

T.J. is only wearing a pair of underwear.

Tiffany kisses T.J. on the forehead and instructs him to do “whatever Uncle Pete asks you to do.”

The skit went on to show T.J. playing with his toys as Uncle Pete stares at him in a predatory fashion through eye holes in his newspaper.

That’s when R. Kelly’s voice begins to sing, “My mind’s telling me ‘no,’ but my body is telling me ‘yes.'”

The video goes on to show another scene where Tiffany leaves T.J., who is in the bathtub, alone with Uncle Pete.

It only gets worse from there.

I cannot believe they thought this was a good idea under any circumstance.

There is nothing funny about this skit. It’s horrible.

Tiffany Haddish Speaks Out

Tiffany Haddish took to social media on Labor Day and released a short statement where she acknowledged that people have a lot of questions, but she’s limited in what she can say because it is an ongoing legal matter.

She did, however, admit that she regrets being a part of the pedophile skit that is at the heart of the lawsuit and allegations against her.

Tiffany wrote:

I know people have a bunch of questions. I get it. I’m right there with you. 

Unfortunately, because there is an ongoing legal case, there’s very little that I can say right now. 

But, clearly, while this sketch was intended to be comedic, it wasn’t funny at all – and I deeply regret having agreed to act in it. 

I really look forward to being able to share a lot more about this situation as soon as I can. 

She also turned off the comments on the post.

Attorney For Tiffany Haddish Denies ‘Meritless’ Claims

Tiffany Haddish’s lawyer, Andrew Brettler, recently called the allegations of a molestation lawsuit brought against her and comedian Aries Spears “meritless” and a “shakedown.”

Attorney Brettler suggested these allegations were par for the course because the alleged victim’s mother has attempted to sue on these matters numerous times in the past.

Plaintiff’s mother, Trizah Morris, has been trying to assert these bogus claims against Ms. Haddish for several years.

Every attorney who has initially taken on her case, and there were several, ultimately dropped the matter once it became clear that the claims were meritless and Ms. Haddish would not be shaken down. 

Now, Ms. Morris has her adult daughter representing herself in this lawsuit.

The two of them will together face the consequences of pursuing this frivolous action.

Social Media Reactions

The streets of Twitter are still buzzing about the allegations against Tiffany and Aries Spears.

Tiffany’s bestie, Jason Lee, founder of Hollywood Unlocked, joined the convo and vowed to expose the people behind the lawsuit against her.
