Tiffany Haddish Breaks Silence Over Child Sex Abuse Allegations: ‘It Wasn’t Funny At All’

After the “Through a Pedophile’s Eyes” skit featuring comedians Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears resurfaced, the internet has been waiting to hear from either of the accused.

The video was initially uploaded to the Funny or Die digital channel but was scrubbed in 2018.

As Blavity previously reported, a 22-year-old woman identified as Jane Doe sued Haddish, 42, and Spears, 47, last week in California’s Superior Court for Los Angeles County.

The suit included herself and her minor brother, identified as John Doe. Jane alleged that Haddish “groomed” the plaintiffs, leaving them “traumatized for life.”

While Spears has not publically made a statement, Haddish recently posted a statement on her Instagram account regarding the lawsuit.

Haddish says she “deeply” regrets performing in a skit that led to her being accused of child sex abuse.

“I know people have a bunch of questions. I get it,” Haddish wrote. “I’m right there with you.”

“Unfortunately, because there is an ongoing legal case, there’s very little that I can say right now,” she continued. “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 this situation as soon as I can.”

The lawsuit accuses Haddish and Spears of emotional distress, gross negligence, sexual battery, sexual harassment, sexual abuse of a minor, and several other accusations.
