“I deeply regret having agreed to act in it,” the comedian said of the incriminating sketch she performed with Aries Spears.

Days after she and 47-year-old Aries Spears were accused of sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl and her younger brother several years ago, the Girls Trip starlet has spoken out, although she admitted there’s not a whole lot to be said on her part at this time.

“I know people have a bunch of questions,” Tiffany Haddish wrote early on Monday (September 5). “I get it. I’m right there with you. Unfortunately, because there is an ongoing legal case, there’s very little that I can say right now.”

The 42-year-old added that “while this sketch was intended to be comedic, it wasn’t funny at all,” also stating that she “deeply regrets having agreed to act in it.”

“I really look forward to being able to share a lot more about this situation as soon as I can,” Haddish concluded her post, which has the comment section turned off.

In the lawsuit that was revealed earlier this month, Jane and John Doe claim to have been traumatized for life at the hands of Spears and his fellow comedian, who they claim groomed their child selves into performing inappropriate, sexually suggestive acts in the name of comedy.
