Kevin Hart has responded to Katt Williams who blasted Tiffany Haddish. During an interview with V103, Williams took aim at Haddish and questioned her comedic skills.

“Tiffany’s been in comedy since she was 16, but no one knows her jokes,” Williams said.  “She ain’t done a tour yet. She ain’t done a special. She has not proven the ability to tell jokes back-to-back for an hour to nobody.”

For the record, Haddish released the stand-up special Tiffany Haddish: She Ready! From the Hood to Hollywood in 2017. She will also release comedy specials through Netfilx in 2019.

Following Williams’ rant against Haddish, Kevin Hart responded to defend Haddish who co-stars with him in the film, Night School. Hart shared his thoughts via Instagram live.

“Let me break it down to you because I love to support, I go back with Tiff,” Hart said in the video. “I remember the days when Tiffany Haddish was sleeping out her car. I remember the days when Tiffany Haddish was homeless. I remember the days when Tiffany Haddish didn’t have not a dime in her goddamn pocket. Worked hard, grinded and got to where she is today and at the height of her career when most should applaud, most should celebrate some choose to down.”

Haddish also took the high road by tweeting in response to Williams, “It’s official, I made it! @KattPackAllDay talked about me and didn’t have his facts right! I look forward to seeing you on Monday Katt, when we pick up our Emmys. I just want to shower you with REAL Love cause you need it, and I Love you.”

Haddish and Williams will receive Emmy Awards on Sept. 17 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
