Tiffany Haddish is proclaiming Black lives matter in her own unique way.
The comedian on Sunday uploaded a video to her Instagram account to thank a fan for generously gifting her with a fur jacket after her Dec. 30 set at The Comedy Store.
“She wasn’t planning on it, but she said she loved me and I was like, ‘If you really love me, lemme have yo jacket,’” Haddish says in the clip. “And she did! So thank you so much, boo!”
But there’s more to it than that. “The Last O.G.” star declared that she would refuse to stop wearing the animal product until the police put an end to taking Black lives.
“I’ma wear it as much as possible because — I don’t know if you guys know this about me, but I’m about to start protesting,” Haddish goes on. “I’m going to 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.”
Just last month, police in Alabama shot and killed Emantic “EJ” Bradford Jr., who they mistakenly believed to be a shooter in a popular mall on Thanksgiving night. It capped off a year of Black people being gunned down by police.
“So, sorry PETA! Don’t be mad at me, be mad at the police; because people are important, and so are the animals,” Haddish adds in her video. “When they stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur … ’cause people are important and so are the animals.”
Some folks chimed in on Haddish’s comments to blast her protest.
“Sorry but whoever uses animal cruelty to protest for black people shows how low their IQ actually is. I never heard of her and tbh this statement already makes me dislike her.”
“@tiffanyhaddish B—- BLACK PEOPLE KILL MORE BLACK PEOPLE THAN WHITE PPL DO!!!BE MAD AT YOUR OWN FKN PPL IDIOT!”
“An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”
Others even warned the “Girls Trip Actress” about backlash from PETA.
“Tiffany they coming for your ass boo just be prepared lol.”
“Sis you just killed your career.”
Haddish responded, “They need to come for the people that kill innocent people. I’m sick of the sadness in my community.”
Still, fans eagerly backed up the actress’ plan.
“Damn! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽💯💯💯 Sounds like a plan! I’m in! ‘STOP KILLING MY PEOPLE!’”
“Way to enter 2019! Yas speaks your truths girl…😘😘”
“Tiffany wear a different fur coat everyday for the entire winter ❄️.”
