Tiffany Haddish Reveals She Was Raped By A Police Cadet



She’s one of the funniest women on the scene right now, but Tiffany Haddish has had to endure a lot of dark days to see the light.

In a recent interview with Glamour magazine, the “Girls Trip” star opened up about one of the trying times in her life and how she overcame. After telling the mag that, “a police cadet raped her at 17 years old,” Haddish stated, “That whole experience put me in such a messed-up place for a long time, and I ended up going to counseling.” The incident not only affected her teen years, but changed how she responded to men throughout her life. “I notice that men are afraid of women that are aggressive. So to protect myself I become semi-aggressive,” she explained. “You hear about, ‘Tiffany always hitting on somebody,’ but that’s to keep them from hitting on me.”

But, instead of letting that difficult time in her life define her, Haddish wants to take that experience and use it as a catalyst to help other sexual assault victims — she’s just figuring out how. “Me just yelling out people’s names with no thought behind it is pointless. I need a plan,” she says. “I could be a voice, but what’s a voice going to do—just keep talking? Or is there action behind it?”

And while their were serious moments during her chat with Glamour, it wouldn’t be Tiffany without a few laughs — like when she revisited the whole Beyoncé bite-gate phenomenon and whether or not it was really Sanaa Lathan.

“I didn’t confirm shit. The reporter was like, ‘Sanaa Lathan?’ I’m, like, three drinks in, so of course I was about to laugh. They thought I put her name out there, but I didn’t. I never said nothing. And Beyoncé didn’t say nothing. Let the person who [bit Beyoncé] bury themselves…. I ain’t trying to destroy this girl. I didn’t say shit about the girl.”
