Tiffany Haddish is speaking out to clarify the comments she made about wanting to work with Bill Cosby.
Last week, Tiffany was asked by the Los Angeles Times who she would like to work with.
“Bill Cosby — I still want to work with Bill Cosby, I don’t care, I’ll drink the juice. I’ll drink the juice. I’ll take a nap. I don’t give a damn,” she said. “But seriously, I would love for him to play my grandfather in something.”
The 37-year-old actress, who just broke out with her role in Girls Trip, was at the 2017 TCA Summer Press Tour in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Thursday (July 27) to talk about her new TBS comedy series The Last O.G. She also responded to the controversy over the comments.
“What I said was a joke,” Tiffany said. “I don’t know if you’ve ever been interviewed before. You do 27 interviews and you’re supposed to be humorous all that time. You’re gonna say some bad jokes. You’re gonna come up with a few not-good jokes. I was trying to make it seem like I’m not afraid to do anything. I’m not afraid of any kind of job, I’m not afraid to play any kind of role, as long as it doesn’t compromise my morals.”
Tiffany was joined at the panel by her co-stars Tracy Morgan, Cedric the Entertainer, Ryan Gaul, and Allen Maldonado.
