Tiffany Haddish doesn't see anything wrong with Blueface's recent antics on Skid Row, where he was seen throwing cash to impoverished people from on top of a vehicle. In fact, she considers the move a blessing.
During a conversation with TMZ, Tiffany Haddish claims that people are bashing Blueface because they don't share the same background as the rapper.
"Those people who say it's dehumanizing or degrading haven't lived in the 'hood," Haddish said. "I'm from South Central, Los Angeles and I've been around a lot of gangbangers, dope dealers, things like that... For my entire life, I have known a lot of men with money that are affiliated to jump on top of their best vehicle and make it rain on everybody... It's not unusual. Actually, from my experience, it's traditional."
Blueface caught a lot of backlash after a video of him went viral. In the clip, the rapper is standing on top of an SUV throwing cash at people in the middle of Los Angeles' Skid Row. Some people felt like Blueface's actions were degrading to those in need because he could've just handed them the money.
Yet, Haddish combats this notion. Not only does she claim that this is part of L.A. street culture, but she also explains that this money—no matter how it was received—is a blessing to underprivileged people.
"Are they saying it's degraded when men in the club and are throwing money and the women have to pick that money off the ground with no clothes on?" Haddish—who was homeless herself before becoming a star—said. "It's a blessing. It's money falling from the sky. It's a blessing... He's throwing out hundreds. He's possibly making it so someone can get a room for the night to stay in so they don't have to be in the cold. You don't know what blessing that might have helped somebody with."
