Tiffany Haddish was given some blunt advice by Whoopi Goldberg before the 38-year-old Girls Trip star's SNL episode. Tiffany reportedly auditioned for Saturday Night Live three times before she was asked to host.
Introducing us to the inimitable Boo Boo Jeffries, Tiffany told the New York Times about her SNL episode,
I was super grateful to be there in that capacity, as opposed to as a regular performer. To be a host is a super big honor. I couldn’t believe I was the first black woman comedian to do it.
Whoopi Goldberg Gave Tiffany Haddish Some Blunt Advice Before Her SNL Episode
She further added,
I Googled and saw that Whoopi Goldberg had been on it, so I reached out to her.
To Tiffany’s surprise, Tiffany had only done a single SNL sketch. Her advice,
You the first, bitch, you better do a good job.
To no one’s surprise, she did. Tiffany’s monologue addressed Hollywood sexual harassment saying,
If you’ve got your thing out, and she’s got all her clothes on, you’re in the wrong. I always make fun of the guy. I make it a joke.
She told the Times,
Most of the time they get scared. And I let everyone know I’m a tattletale. That I will snitch. That might be why it took me so long to get where I’m at now.
