In her latest cover story for Glamour, Tiffany Haddish revealed something terrible she went through.
The comedian revealed that at the age of 17, she was raped by a police cadet.
“That whole experience put me in such a messed-up place for a long time, and I ended up going to counseling. I notice that men are afraid of women that are aggressive. So to protect myself I become semi-aggressive,”
She said that’s what caused her “fighting” personality. She became that way so that men stay away from her. “You hear about, ‘Tiffany always hitting on somebody,’ but that’s to keep them from hitting on me,”
The assault shaped how Tiffany approaches men in her life, and is one of the main reason she wants to help of rape and sexual assault.
“Me just yelling out people’s names with no thought behind it is pointless. I need a plan,”. “The Nobody’s Fool” “I could be a voice, but what’s a voice going to do—just keep talking? Or is there action behind it?”
