Comedian Tiffany Haddish has spoken out in defense of rapper Blueface after he faced criticism for throwing money at the homeless people on Skid Row.
Haddish spoke to TMZ, where she told them that the act is actually a tradition that she's seen many people carry out.
"It's like tradition. It's not unusual. It's actually, from my experience, traditional. I've seen it so many times," she said. "Those people that's saying it's dehumanizing and degrading obviously haven't lived in the hood. I'm from South Central, Los Angeles. I've been around a lot of gangbangers, drug dealers, and things like that, and they do often give out money, sometimes turkeys, toys — things of this nature.
"I have known a lot of men with money that are affiliated [with gangs] to jump on top of their best vehicle and make it rain," Haddish continued.
The Hollywood actress called it a "blessing."
"If he's throwing out 'hundreds,' he's possibly making it so somebody can get a room for the night to stay in so they don't have to be in the cold. You don't know what blessing that might've helped somebody with."
