There’s a very disturbing story proliferating on social media, concerning comedians Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears, Media Take Out has learned.
Aries has been under pressure on social media, as Media Take Out reported, for making negative comments towards pop singer Lizzo – and her body shape.
Now just days after folks on Twitter were hoping to “cancel” the comedian, a disturbing new unsubstantiated claim is circulating, concerning him and fellow comedian Tiffany Haddish.
The allegations were published by a popular blogger Nik Richie on his new “social justice” news app Factz. The site claims that it, “obtained a complaint for damages, yet to be filed in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Los Angeles, against comedians Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears, containing multiple extremely serious accusations, including child molestation.”
The report continued, saying that a woman – who is going by the name “Jane Doe” is suing the two comedians for “Intentional infliction of emotional distress. gross negligence. negligent supervision/failure to warn, breach of fiduciary duty, constructive fraud, s**ual battery, s**ual harassment and s**ual abuse of a minor.”
The woman who allegedly is filing the lawsuit is named as “John Doe, a minor, 15.” Factz is claiming that the purported lawsuit states that Jane Doe “was 7 years old when they were assaulted by Haddish and Spears.”
The lawsuit claims that Tiffany and Aries picked up the child and filmed a “comedy” video of her – and is alleging that the “comedy” video was inappropriate. Here is how Nik explains what was in the video.
Media Take Out reached out to people close to Aries and Tiffany and both of their camps told us that any claim suggesting that either Aries or Tiffany would do anything inappropriate with a child is “preposterous.”
Both comedians are preparing legal responses to the report by Factz.
