Lil Rel will not stand for unwarranted criticism or negative remarks about Tiffany Haddish.
Back in May, Tracy Morgan sat down for an interview with Vulture about his show The Last O.G and appeared to become visibly irritated when his co-star, Tiffany Haddish's name was mentioned. When an interviewer attempted to ask the Saturday Night Live actor about his experiences working with Tiffany, Morgan interrupted and asserted that he had no interest in speaking about Haddish. "Tiffany is not the only one," he said. This is not Tiffany Haddish show, this is Tracy Morgan... this is The Last O.G... If you're going to ask about Tiffany... ask that about Cedric... ask that about craft services... everybody that comes to work on that show... we're not going to go there."
When the interview first surfaced, Rel responded by taking to his Twitter to post, "This is one hating ass dude right here that show would be nothing if [Tiffany Haddish] wasn’t on it... Don’t bite the hand that keeps you relevant!" Months later, in a preview of his Uncensored appearance, Rel reflects on the incident and the reason why he came to Haddish's defence. "I don't have a beef with Tracy Morgan, but I don't like the way he was treating my sister," Rel shared. After watching the aforementioned interview, Rel recalls Morgan's stance saying, "I mean, just the anger he got just as soon as they mentioned her name...that arrogance of not being able to praise this beautiful, talented black woman was disgusting."
