Tiffany Haddish Claps Back at Those Who Feel She is Ratchet + Plays Stereotypical Characters

It’s pretty obvious that Tiffany Haddish won’t be short of movie roles anytime soon.

However, she has been receiving criticism for the roles she books.

Some have taken to social media to accuse Tiffany of always taking on roles that portray nasty stereotypes of black women.

Then of course, some have even downright described Tiffany as being “ratchet.”

In a recent interview with Glamour Magazine, this is what she had to say in response:

She’s also loyal to the ones who brought her. When we talk about Tyler Perry and the criticism that his films perpetuate black stereotypes, Haddish gets visibly upset. “I just think that a person is ignorant when they say, ‘Oh, you’re being a stereotypical black person.’ Well, what’s that? Explain that to me, because that’s an actual person, and everybody deserves to see themselves onscreen,” she says. “I feel like all facets deserve to be seen—from the doctors to the janitors to the baby mamas to the side chicks.” And she’s committed to playing women who look and talk just like her. “It’s funny because people are like, ‘Oh, Tiffany Haddish is ratchet.’ No, I’m your typical chick from the hood. And as ratchet as I might talk, or people might think I carry myself, I am making a living portraying myself.”

The full interview is a good read. She opens up a lot and even revealed she was s*xually assaulted at 17 by a police cadet.
