According to TMZ, in a recent chat on the invite-only app, Clubhouse, Tiffany Haddish was partaking in a discussion when a guy compared her to Nicki — calling her the “Nicki Minaj of comedy right now.”
“Anybody tell you’re like the Nicki Minaj of comedy,” the fan said. “Just killing the muthaf*ckin’ game.”
Another fan shot down the comparison, saying Haddish “shows up on time,” to which Haddish responded, “And unlike Nicki, I treat everybody with respect and dignity.”
While many are unsure where the shade came from, some fans are attributing the rift between the two ladies to the 2018 moment at the MTV VMAs when Haddish called attention to Camila Cabello’s five nominations that night, before dragging Cabello’s former group by adding, “Those of you watching at home, hi Fifth Harmony!”
Later in the evening, while accepting her Moonman for Best Hip-Hop Award, the “Yikes” rapper warned Haddish, “Don’t be coming for Fifth Harmony because Normani is that b*tch!”
Later that evening former 5H member Lauren Jauregui later tweeted about the jab, writing that it was time for women to support one another.
“Waiting for the day when supporting one successful dope woman does not mean insult to other successful dope women,” Lauren Jauregui wrote.
While neither Nicki Minaj nor Tiffany Haddish have responded to news about the leak, something tells us that Haddish will be making an appearance in a Nicki line real soon.
