Recently Tiffany Haddish took time to chime in on Blueface's antics out on skid row, whom made it rain on a crowd of homeless folks. A video started circulating about the rapper and his antics and he received a load of heated criticism for forcing the homeless to scavenge the bills rather than just handing them out to begin with.
He’s a real life CORNBALL .... https://t.co/2FwwXG5UBp— CupcakKe (@CupcakKe_rapper) December 24, 2019
According to comedian Tiffany Haddish though, the practice of making it rain on the homeless is a tradition where she's from, and that his actions shouldn't be looked down upon - "It's like tradition. It's not unusual. It's actually, from my experience, traditional. I've seen it so many times."
"Those people that's saying it's dehumanizing and degrading obviously haven't lived in the hood. I'm from South Central Los Angeles. I've been around a lot of gangbangers, drug dealers, and things like that, and they do often give out money, sometimes turkeys, toys—things of this nature. They're charitable, they're being charitable. But 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."
She further compared the act to what happens at the club.
"Are they saying it's degrading when the men are in the club and they're throwing money and the women gotta pick that money up off the ground with no clothes? I mean, these people are clothed and they're living on Skid Row in tents, like, come on." When asked if she thought her feelings were mirrored by those affected, Haddish responded "It would've been degrading if he was throwing out 'ones.' That's degrading, But if he's throwing out 'hundreds,' he's possibly making it so somebody 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've helped somebody with."
What are your thoughts on the matter - is she right or is Blueface in the wrong?
