Tiffany Haddish showed out at George's Floyd funeral when she didn't get a shoutout as a celebrity attendee
Today the family of George Floyd said their official goodbyes today at a public funeral in Minnesota. The family was kind enough to live stream the service for all of us to see.
We at SW4T know that certain traditions happen at black funerals...but celebrity shoutouts isn't one of them.
North Central University was the center of attention today because of the funeral. Beside family and friends of Floyd a lot of black celebrites made an appearance. Here is a list that we know of so far:
However most of the attention went to Rev. Al Sharpton when he did the celebrity rollcall and forgot to mention Tiffany Haddish. She wasn't having any of that so she made it known to Rev Al (and of course the Floyd family who the funeral was actually for) she was there IN PERSON to share her condolences. The Rev even invited her on stage to say a few words.
Twitter of course saw her shoutout as disrespect rather than the lack of her adknowledgement. Here are some of the best reactions:
Redirect the frustration from Tiffany Haddish to Al Sharpton and question why celebrities who DID NOT know George Floyd are getting shoutouts? pic.twitter.com/4hZaqrodqL— Joshua Chenault (@joshuachenault1) June 4, 2020
Al Sharpton giving a shout out to Tiffany Haddish during a funeral is the blackest thing I’ve ever seen and I love it.— Ronald Funches (@RonFunches) June 4, 2020
I’m confused. Why are these celebrities getting a shout out at George Floyd’s memorial service? I don’t care or need to know that Tiffany Haddish & Tyrese are in the building. #GeorgeFloydMemorial— Black Beauty Lover (@BlackBeautyLuvr) June 4, 2020
you shouldn't be asking why Tiffany Haddish got mad, the real question is why the fuck is Al Sharpton doing shout outs at a damn funeral in the first place.— Cory K © (@ImJust_Cory) June 4, 2020
Everybody going after Tiffany Haddish for saying something about not being shouted out at George Floyd's funeral, which is perfectly fine. But we just not gonna act like Al Sharpton DID A FUCKING CELEBRITY SHOUT OUT AT A GOT DAMN FUNERAL!! pic.twitter.com/4xnHTJ5BHA— MysteryTheProducer (@iTalkWet) June 4, 2020
