Comedic actor, Tracy Morgan, opened up a whole new can of worms when he decided to seemingly shade his co-star, Tiffany Haddish, the other day. In case y’all did not get a chance to catch Tracy’s interview with Vulture, let’s just say that it’s probably safe to assume the brotha ain’t too happy with Tiffany getting a lotta the shine. Not sure why, but we’re definitely sure it is a fact. How so? Because Tracy Morgan had no problem voicing that fact publicly and now folks are calling him out on it.
(VIDEO) What Had Happened Was…
What had happened was that during Tracy’s interview (below) with Vulture, the interviewers were asking Tracy about the new TBS show he and Tiffany Haddish star in, titled “The Last O.G..” While doing so, the they then asked the very harmless question of what it’s like working with the hilarious Tiffany Haddish. That is what apparently pushed Tracy’s button and completely caught the interviewers off guard as it did us…
“We’re not gon’ go there,” Morgan snapped. “Because this isn’t Tiffany’s show. This is Tracy Morgan. This is ‘The Last O.G.’ … So if you gon’ ask that about Tiffany, ask that about Cedric [the Entertainer] and ask that about Craft Services. …Everyone that come to work everyday on that show. We NOT gonna go there.”
The interviewers were speechless for a hot second, then tried to carry on and change the topic, but Tracy had more to say. Probably realizing how harsh his initial statement may have seemed, he wanted to make it clear that “I love Tiffany, but how I run my set is different.” Therefore, he didn’t want to “just shine a light on Tiffany.” Why? Because Tracy Morgan says they all need the spotlight, including the people who work behind the scenes.
Slams Tracy Morgan
We get Morgan’s point, but we just don’t get that initial animosity-filled reaction he gave the interviewers as soon as Tiffany name was brought up. Maybe there was nothing behind it at all, but according to Tiffany’s former “The Carmichael Show” co-star, Lil Rel, there’s a lot behind Tracy’s statements.’
Let Lil’ Rel tell it: Tracy Morgan is a straight up hater, with a capital ‘H’ and Rel had no prob’ voicing that on social media. Soon after hearing about Tracy’s interview, Lil Rel took to Twitter to sound off:

“This is one hating ass dude right here. … That show would be nothing if @TiffanyHaddish wasn’t on it… Don’t bite the hand that keeps you relevant!!!”
Ouch! As y’all can see, Lil’ Rel is not feelin’ Tracy’s ‘hate’ one bit.
At any rate, “The Last OG” has been receiving excellent reviews.
