Tiffany Haddish: I'll Wear Fur Until Police Stop Killing Black People

Dec 31, 2018 21:04

When a fan wearing a raccoon fur jacket told Tiffany Haddish that she loved her, Haddish replied "If you really love me, let me have your jacket" - and the fan did.

Haddish then posted the above video on Instagram, in which she thanked the fan and said "I'm gonna wear fur every day until the police stop killing black people. That'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. See how that goes? 'Cuz people are important and so are the animals - to keep me warm."

Other celebrities posted in the comments. Nick Cannon, NeNe Leakes and Kendrick Sampson (Lyft Bae) voiced their approval, with Sampson saying "Look at all the people pissed about this that haven't ever stood up for black lives."

But vegan Russell Simmons wasn't so supportive: he commented "White supremacy is a disease that takes on many forms and has many symptoms. The abuse of other beings will not address that...or heal ourselves. I love you Tiffany, but I wish you would reconsider this route of protest."
