The microscope is heavily focused on Tiffany Haddish, as her star continues to rise with the massive success of Girls Trip. But her latest comments about fallen TV icon Bill Cosby got her in some hot water.
While the comedienne seemed to rub some people the wrong way after admitting she "will drink the juice" in reference to working with Cosby at some point in her career, she recently spoke on what the true intentions were behind her seemingly problematic comment.
"What I said was a joke," she said during a panel at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, via People. "You're going to say some bad jokes."
She went on to explain that she wanted to make it clear that she was "not afraid to do anything. I'm not afraid of any kind of job. I'm not afraid to play any kind of girl as long as it doesn't compromise my morals."
Going a bit more in-depth with her explanation, she stressed that she, in no way, agrees with his alleged actions, but simultaneously, that does not motivate her to fear him either.
"I don't agree with what he did or anything, but, at the end of the day, I'm not afraid of the big bad wolf," she added. "That's what I was trying to say, and I was trying to do it in a humorous way."
