Wayment, Fur And The BLM Movement?: Tiffany Haddish Makes A Bold Proclamation To Stand Up For Black Lives

Tiffany Haddish is proclaiming Black lives matter in her own unique way.

The comedian on Sunday uploaded a video to her Instagram account to thank a fan for generously gifting her with a fur jacket after her Dec. 30 set at The Comedy Store.

“She wasn’t planning on it, but she said she loved me and I was like, ‘If you really love me, lemme have yo jacket,’” Haddish says in the clip. “And she did! So thank you so much, boo!”

But there’s more to it than that. “The Last O.G.” star declared that she would refuse to stop wearing the animal product until the police put an end to taking Black lives.

Just last month, police in Alabama shot and killed Emantic “EJ” Bradford Jr., who they mistakenly believed to be a shooter in a popular mall on Thanksgiving night. It capped off a year of Black people being gunned down by police, Atlanta Black Star reports.
