Tiffany Haddish reveals she ‘killed an old man by booty-popping on him at a Bar Mitzvah’
Speaking on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the Girls Trip star shared the story from her memoir, The Last Black Unicorn
Tiffany Haddish has a pool full of fun encounters and she is not afraid to share it with people even if it means talking about the time when her booty-shaking dance moves cost an old man his life. Yes, you read that right! The actress spoke about the incident on Saturday (April 7) when she appeared on 'The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon'
Tiffany, who had come on the show to promote her memoir 'The Last Black Unicorn', revealed that she had a wild night one time before she became a breakout star. The actress revealed how she was paid to dance enthusiastically and encourage other guests to have a good time and, believe it or not, she did it for 11 long years. There is no doubt that Tiffany would have been great at her work, but one particular event did not go the way she had planned.
"There was an older gentleman and he had to be in his 80s or whatever," Tiffany told Jimmy while recalling the incident. She recalled grabbing him by his tie to encourage him to dance. In order to take it a step further, Tiffany decided to show the old man some of her good moves.
She remembered turning around and showing off her booty dance moves. Everything seemed to have been going well until the expressions of the people who had been present at the event suddenly started to drop. At this point, Tiffany could not make sense of what was happening but seemed to get a hang of things when she turned around.
"I turn around and he was on the floor on his back!" she recalled. "They ended up taking him to the hospital … he passed away." It is at this point that Tiffany realized that she had a deadly weapon with her — some life-threatening killer booty dance movies. "I was like, I didn’t wanna dance no more coz I felt like this ass is deadly. My moves a killer. I got killer moves," she said.
For months Tiffany was affected by what had happened and was not willing to get back on the dance floor. But things changed after she received a letter which was written by the man's daughter. "I got a letter from the guy’s daughter saying thank you so much, that that’s the happiest they have seen him. They hadn't seen him have that much fun or smile that much," she said. It is after this that Tiffany was encouraged to get back on the road.
