TIFFANY HADDISH IS THE FIRST BLACK WOMAN TO HOST THE MTV MOVIE & TV AWARDS
It’s been one swell year for Funny Woman and Girls’ Trip star, Tiffany Haddish. From bagging major gigs to being included on Time‘s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, we’re so proud of this young woman whose wit and perseverance has gotten her to this point.
It’s such a victory to see Haddish win as she hasn’t had the easiest of lives. Her comic spurt began from her own real life tragedy when her step-father tampered with the brakes of her mother’s vehicle, leading her to having permanent brain injury. It was also reported that the accident was also meant for her as he meant to kill them both. Afterwards, Haddish and her half-siblings were kept in foster care in which time Haddish would find that comedy was an outlet to deal with her horrid reality. Her journey leading up to this moment has been a slow, bumpy ride but here she is, making it!
“It’s been a year of firsts for black people,” Haddish said in her opening monologue. “I’m the first black woman to host the MTV Movie and TV Awards, ‘Black Panther‘ is the first African American movie to make $1 billion, and ‘A Quiet Place‘ is the first film to scare black people out of talking in movie theaters.”
She truly is an inspiration!
