In her early 20s, Tiffany Haddish found out — from her stepfather — that he had tried to kill her and her family. This happened in 1988.
According to Haddish, her stepfather caused the accident. Her mother suffered severe brain damage after her head went through the windshield.
Haddish said, “After the accident, oh my God, she would say the worst things to me, like ‘You look like your ugly a** daddy, I hate him. I hate you.’ She couldn’t get all her words out, so she’d just punch me. Just full on. Because of her, I can take a punch like nobody’s business. Teachers would ask, ‘Why’s Tiffany’s lip busted?’ I didn’t say anything. As bad as she was to me, I still couldn’t help but love her.”
After this, Haddish says she was depressed and was then encouraged to pursue a career in comedy.
Lucky for us.
