Tiffany Haddish recently uploaded a video in which she addresses police brutality and chooses a new way of protesting. “When police stop killing Black people, I’ll stop wearing fur. It’s my new protest,” she said.”So sorry PETA, don’t be mad at me! Be mad at the police!” Many have criticized this statement, including long-time vegan, Russell Simmons.
The Def Jam co-founder agrees that police brutality should be addressed, but urges Haddish to find another method that doesn’t harm another being. “I love you Tiffany but I wish you could reconsider this route of protest.” He said.
Simmons clarified that he was in favor of those doing protests against this major issue. “Silence is LOUD and unless you too speak up with me you are guilty of all that your brothers and sisters do,” he continued.”By not speaking you allow it to happen.”
Hopefully both parties can come to a mutual agreement and settle this issue as soon as possible.
