Tiffany Haddish arrives at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party on March 4, 2018 in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Tiffany Haddish’s remarkable rise to fame made her one of the breakout stars of 2017. Her role in Will Packer’s Girls Trip last year brought her to the forefront of Hollywood, securing her deals with Groupon, HBO, and more recently, Netflix.

Her newfound success has allowed her new friends and connections with A-list celebrities like Meryl Strep, Beyonce and Barbara Streisand. She cried tears of joy meeting Oprah during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. All the while, the comedian/actor has always remained true to herself, from her strength to her crazy stories.  

This week, a Twitter user attacked the star for her special on Showtime and her breakout film. “Tiffany Haddish has been in 1 hit movie that wasn’t that great nor was she the draw to the movie to begin with, she flopped on SNL, she won’t stop talking about other people and her special on showtime flopped, calling her A List is beyond absurd I’m being generous w/the D status,” the user said.

Haddish, of course, clapped back today (Mar. 7) in a hilarious way. 

Apparently, Tiffany Haddish is not phased by anyone who can't respect her rise to fame. She's set to host the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards this summer on June 18th, following in the footsteps of other comedians such as Kevin Hart and Amy Schumer.
