Tiffany Haddish is a comedian that knows how to use her platform to address serious issues. In 2019, Haddish will using her celebrity to bring attention to police brutality, but in a creative way.
PETA is against cruelty to animals. The organization is totally against fur coats. Haddish respects that but she doesn't’t feel like an organization that respects the rights of animals should be more important than protecting the lives of Black people.
Proving her point, the comedian recently posted a video on Instagram proclaiming to her 4.4 million followers that she plans to wear fur “every day,” until police stop killing Black people.
“I just want to give a shout out and a thank you to one of my fans that were here at the comedy store tonight who gave me this beautiful jacket,” Tiffany shared showing off her new fur. “Now she wasn't’t planning on it, but she said she loved me and I was like, ‘If you really love me, let me have your jacket.’ And she did.”
She continued, “So thank you so much boo. I’ma wear it as much as possible because I don’t know if you guys know this about me but I’m ‘bout to start protesting. I’ma wear fur every day until they stop killing black people. When the police stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur. It’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,” she shared before adding, “See how that go? ‘Cos people are important. And so are the animals. To keep me warm.”
