Just last week, comedians Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears were accused of grooming and sexually assaulting two underage siblings on separate occasions in 2013 and 2014.
Both are now being sued over the accusations, and Tiffany’s lawyers call this ordeal a “shakedown.”
Early Monday morning, Tiffany released a statement on her Instagram, which read:
“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 the situation as soon as I can.”
Tiffany is the first to break her silence to address the lawsuit that has since been filed.
