Tiffany Haddish Skit Co-Creator Aries Spears Breaks Silence On Grooming, Molestation Lawsuit

ytsfreeSeptember 9, 2022

There’s been a lot of talk about Tiffany Haddish and comedian Aries Spears this week after a lawsuit dropped accusing the two of grooming and molestation. The allegations stemmed from working with minors on a sketch comedy skit that later was posted on Funny or Die. (Though Funny or Die made it clear they were not associated with getting the skit made, calling it “absolutely disgusting.”) Now Spears has broken his silence about the legalities coming up. 

Aries Spears is ½ of a duo that hosts the “Spears & Steinberg” podcast. The comedian dropped a teaser for the episode on social media in which he and his podcast partner, Andy Steinberg, spoke out about their respective weeks. Andy wasn’t doing too badly, but Spears obviously felt he needed to address the elephant in the room, and did so: 

Listen, obviously for legal reasons, I really can’t talk about anything at this time. But I just more or less want to say to all the loyal listeners thank you guys for your support and your love. Listen: This is an extortion case.
