Mo’Nique has come out in defense of her fellow comedian, Tiffany Haddish following her bombed NYE show.
“The advice I would give her is keep on going and don’t judge yourself harshly,” Mo’Nique told Page Six. “That was one show, one night, the next one is coming.
“Tell me other times you heard of Tiffany Haddish bomb? So, let’s just put it off to, she had a bad night, she had a bad moment,” she continued. “Let’s put it to that before you want to just throw her away. That’s what is so disheartening… We are so quick to throw away and go onto the next instead of saying, ‘OK, she had one bad night.’ Now, people are saying, ‘Now, you have got to prove you are good because you had one bad moment.'”
Haddish’s disastrous Miami performance went viral, but she was quick to apologize to her fans and will use the experience to learn and grow. Everal high profile comedians have also publicly defended the ‘Night School’ star including Kevin Hart, Marlon Wayans and Amy Schumer.
