Kevin Hart & Tiffany Haddish stopped by The Breakfast Club this morning promoting their new movie Night School and also talked equal pay in Hollywood, and the comments made by Katt Williams about him and Tiffany Haddish.
Night School is the first movie underneath Kevin Hart's production umbrella "Heartbeat Productions". When making the film he wanted to put himself in a position to win so he teamed up with Will Packer. This is their 7th movie together four numbers ones and two number 2 movies. Coming off a number one success with Packer Heart expressed it only made sense to get Tiffany Haddish to co-star in the movie. On the premise of the movie, Kevin said that he wanted to make a movie people could relate to and that's why the movie is about second chances saying: "in this particular case education is at the forefront of the story when you embrace it the second time you do it correctly".
A few days ago Kat William caught some heat and even earned himself Donkey of The Day from Charlamagne Tha God for his comments about current comedians including Kevin Hart & Tiffany Haddish. One of his comments about Tiffany that caused the uproar was when he said "You can’t tell me your favorite Tiffany Haddish joke. Why? Because 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”. Katt Williams went on to talk about how no one was doing or putting up numbers that he was doing. In response to that Kevin said: "So if I'm looking at people that share my craft I'm going to bring up people Kat Williams named, Lil Rel, Jerrod Carmichael, Hannibal Burres, myself, and Tiffany Haddish..." Heart continued on by listing the successes of all the people that Kat Williams had Trashed talked.
Finally expression his issues with what Katt had been saying Hart heald nothing back "My frustrations at Katt Williams is that he keeps pointing fingers at Hollywood, when do you take responsibility for your own actions, you had the shot, you were the guy, you were set up to be the star". He continues on to talk about how Katt Williams chose drugs over everything else and that Williams is frustrated now that other people are using their positions to bring others up finally saying "don't blame everybody else for your s--t".
Tiffany finally speaking about the whole ordeal says that she still is a huge fan of his, but asked herself when he came at her "damn what did I do to him, did I f--k his man". Despite all the jokes, however, Haddish has no hard feelings over it. When asked by Angela Yee "Doesn't it feel like as the success comes and things get bigger for you so much hate comes as well", she had to say "well I expect it, it's part of the process, they love you for a minute then they hate on you".
Night School hits theaters on September 28th
