Tiffany Haddish is facing backlash after announcing she was going on a fact-finding mission to Israel to learn the truth about the war.  

Tiffany Haddish is catching heat online after announcing she was flying to Israel to learn about the ongoing conflict with Hamas. 

On Tuesday (February 20) the actress and comedian, who had her Bat Mitzvah at 40 in 2019 after discovering she was Jewish, took to Instagram Live to announce her plans.  

“This is an educational trip for me … I’m gonna learn about the politics,” Haddish explained. “See, I feel like I can’t believe I see everything on the Internet … I need to go see for myself, I’m one of those people.’  

She added, “I’m gonna ask questions – see with my own eyes.” 

Haddish said she was going to “talk to people” In Israel, stating, “I’m gonna go find out why is this happening? Why is this going down?” 

When a commenter asked why she wasn’t going to Gaza, Haddish replied that she was. “Who said I wasn’t going to Gaza? I said I was gonna see with my own eyes, got to go to Israel first, and isn’t Gaza in Israel? Ain’t it all on the same little piece of land, same … surrounded by water?” she stated, although Gaza borders Israel and Egypt 

While the war in Israel is well documented on traditional news outlets and social media, Tiffany Haddish cited her own experiences for her refusal to ” believe everything” on social media.  

“’I know a lot of stuff on social media be not true because … I see stuff people say about me, and I live my life – I’m living my life and I’m like, “That’s not what I said, that’s not true.”‘

Social Media Users Respond to Tiffany Haddish’s Israel Trip

Her comments sparked criticism from social media users, with some accusing her of taking a check for the trip.  

“The fact you can fly and ‘holiday’ in Israel but Gaza is pretty much destroyed gives you all the information you really need. This isn’t a war, it’s [genocide],” one person wrote in the comments.
