Katt Williams Claims Kevin Hart Brought Up Tiffany Haddish Beef To Sell Night School Tickets

Katt Williams has never been one to shy away from speaking his mind, even if what’s in there is a negative thought or two about another celebrity. Lately, some of those negative musings have been about Kevin Hart. As two of the most popular stand-ups working today, the comedians haven’t always seen eye-to-eye, and now Williams is accusing Hart of intensifying the issues between the two to generate publicity and sell tickets for his upcoming movie Night School.

Here’s the quote he dropped on Instagram Live…

It’s hard to tell exactly when the bad blood between the two started, but it intensified earlier this year when Katt Williams appeared on Frank And Wanda In The Morning and talked about his confusion over why certain black comedians are elevated to stardom by Hollywood and others aren’t. During the conversation, he took several shots at Tiffany Haddish, saying no one could tell you their favorite one of her jokes because she’s never proven she can headline a tour or star in her own special. In response, Hart, who has never been shy about speaking his mind either, appeared on The Breakfast Club to defend his co-star and blasted Williams for not taking responsibility for his own actions and for not helping comedians who came after him.

Here’s a portion of his quote…

Obviously, those comments didn’t sit too well with Katt Williams who fired back at Kevin Hart over touring. Over the past few years, Hart has widely been sighted as the most popular or one of the several most popular stand-up comedians in the world, both in terms of tickets sold and revenue generated. Katt Williams, however, doesn’t really like the fact that much of Hart’s touring, at least according to him, has occurred outside the United States and has stayed away from the audiences that originally pushed him to stardom.

I have no idea what’s really going on here in terms of motivations. It’s always difficult to tell whether people are genuinely offended or they’re trying to keep their name in the papers or what. But I must say I love the idea of using boxing/ MMA-style tactics to promote a movie. I have no idea if it would work, but in the age of social media, the idea of Brad Pitt and George Clooney throwing middle fingers at each other ahead of a movie release seems like the next step.

Rocketman Trailer Has The Elton John Biopic Taking Musical Flight

That opening riff from Bennie and the Jets. The lyrical swell of the chorus for Rocketman. The musical catalogue of Sir Elton John is unmistakable, and it’s likely going to power this incredibly impressive-looking biopic, Rocketman, which will star Kingsman standout Taron Egerton in the title role.

This Rotten Week: Predicting A Star Is Born And Venom Reviews

There are only two movies on the docket this week, and, without giving too much away, it looks like they exist on totally different ends of the critical spectrum. On one side we have what looks like could be a serious contender for major prizes in the upcoming award season; and the other looks like an unfortunate new addition to the ever-growing list of live-action comic book movies. Get ready for A Star Is Born and Venom.

Just remember, I’m not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they’ll end up on the Tomatometer. Let’s take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

Considering her talent, ability to play different characters on stage, and general showmanship , Lady Gaga was always going to hit the big screen in a dramatic role eventually. And by all early accounts she crushes it in A Star Is Born, the third remake of the 1937 original of the same name. The movie follows Bradley Cooper’s character, a famous country music star, who meets and falls in love with an up-and-coming singer (Gaga). The discovery starts him on a path towards getting his life on the straight-and-narrow, but it turns out to be a hard path to walk.

Critics have universally praised the film since its festival debut in September, with the Tomatometer sitting at 95% with almost 100 reviews posted. The love isn’t just coming in for Lady Gaga, as it’s also there for Bradley Cooper – who not only stars, but also makes his writer/director debut. Like the case with Gaga, the first time seems to be the charm. Critics love the tone of the feature, complimenting the musical numbers and the on-screen chemistry of the leads. I doubt we see the score move over the course of the week.
