Since her scene-stealing performance in the 2017 hit comedy Girl’s Trip, Tiffany Haddish’s star has been shining brighter than ever. Looking to end the year on a high note, she was hyped to flex her comedic chops in Miami with a New Year’s Eve stand-up show but it things went south when she bombed resulting in fans walking out during her performance.
She wasn’t ready.
Haddish’s 2019 is off to a bit of a rocky start thanks to the lackluster performance. The performance served as the start of her She’s Ready Tour. A video of attendee heckling the comedian during her low point on stage went viral on Twitter sparking a debate. As stories began to surface about her disappointing performance, Haddish spoke on the matter owning up to her bad comedic outing vowing it will never happen again.
Haddish’s fail gave opportunist the opportunity they needed to question whether or not she is funny at all? Harking back to Katt Williams when he said during a V-103 radio interview he thinks she is overrated. But with haters came many supporters, celebrities and fellow comedians offering encouragement for the Night School actress by bringing up times they bombed or had a poor showing.
The whole Tiffany Haddish “isn’t funny” movement is a weird flex, but we are sure this was a teachable moment for her. We are confident she will rebound and move on from the moment and deliver better performances on her other stops on her tour. Hit the gallery to see all off the support and some of the hate thrown her way.

I understand that some people don’t find Tiffany Haddish to be funny, but I don’t get celebrating someone’s humiliation and pain unless they have a reputation for being a jerk, or have done something harmful.— Megan’s Album Is Better Than Yours (@JamilahLemieux) January 1, 2019
This is the price of fame when you're a comic. I was so lucky that there wasn't a Snapchat/IG when I was starting out on my first big tour. No REAL comic never bombs.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) January 1, 2019
You are a hilarious, incredible talent @TiffanyHaddish and I can't wait to see you live! Ignore the haters! https://t.co/2nhpemOsGV

Failure is a part of growth and lessons get learned. The crowd will speak on this night forever so they had an experience, and you are the wiser. Not end of world. You’ll shine more in 2019— Questo Impossible Meatballs (@questlove) January 1, 2019
Cameras blow everything out of proportion. Having a bad set is part of being a comic. You’re dope :)— Damon Wayans Yunior? (@wayansjr) January 1, 2019
It's a contingent of niggas that HATE Tiffany Haddish. I don't get it. But like whatever... she stays booked and busy and hating comes along with the bag. Good luck to her I'm still rooting for her.— M’BlockU (@rodimusprime) January 1, 2019

Y'all remember when Katt Williams said Tiffany Haddish was overrated and she would flop and they called him a hater... 👀— Cameron Jacob (@thesenuts365) January 2, 2019
It's my bed time. 😴
For the past 2 weeks Twitter has been trying to end Jacquees' career but now nobody can critique Tiffany Haddish? pic.twitter.com/Pyr7FR1RKD— 💥SHOTS FIRED💥 (@gorgeousglamher) January 1, 2019
The way y’all talk about “ghetto” black women is... telling.— Ari LaBeija (@TheBaddestMitch) January 2, 2019

Tiffany Haddish had a rough night. It happens to the best of em. Richard Pryor included. She gotta dust herself off and keep prospering. Simple as that.— Agent of Chaos (@TheTrillAC) January 2, 2019
And the worst of us, I bomb every time.— Dave Weasel (@DaveWeasel) January 2, 2019
I keep seeing that Tiffany Haddish is “loud and ghetto” and therefore continues to “feed into the stereotype” and I have several issues with this statement. Why do Black women have to filter who they are to beat stereotypes that we didn’t even create for ourselves?— Brionne (@brionne_brionne) January 2, 2019
