Tiffany Haddish, Aries Spears Sued for Child Sexual Abuse, Gross Negligence Among Accusations

Tiffany Haddish says she deeply regrets acting in a sketch at the center of a recent lawsuit accusing the actress and fellow comedian Aries Spears of child sexual abuse.

“I know people have a bunch of questions,” Haddish said in a statement posted to social media on Monday morning. “I get it. I’m right there with you. Unfortunately, because there is an ongoing legal case, there’s very little that I can say right now. But, clearly, while this sketch was intended to be comedic, it wasn’t funny at all — and I deeply regret having agreed to act in it. I really look forward to being able to share a lot more about this situation as soon as I can.”

The video, titled “Through a Pedophile’s Eyes,” was posted to (and subsequently removed from) the user-generated content section of FunnyOrDie.com in 2018. The pending lawsuit, first reported by The Daily Beast, was filed by an anonymous Jane Doe earlier this month on behalf of herself and her younger brother (John Doe, for the purposes of the suit). It accuses Spears and Haddish of intentional infliction of emotional distress, gross negligence, sexual battery, sexual harassment, and sexual abuse of a minor.
