But The Last Black Unicorn author can’t avoid controversy.

Haddish has come to the defense of trash rap idol Bluefacewho was lambasted on social media for making it rain as he threw money in the air for Christmas on Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles.

Last week, the Thotiana rapper stood on top of a black SUV with several bags full of cash, throwing the bills into the air to a frenzied crowd below.

Of course, it was recorded.

And, of course, he posted it on social media, commenting: “The season of giving.”

The attention-grabbing stunt scene made traffic stand still, as people jumped out of their vehicles to make a mad dash for the cash.

Skid Row is a homeless area in downtown L.A.

There’s even a song about it from Little Shop of Horrors that Tichina Arnold, Tisha Campbell and Michelle Weeks peed all over in the 1986 movie musical.

The Girls Trip breakout star, who has successfully crafted a narrative about living in her car, can relate to homelessness.

“To those people who say it’s dehumanizing, and it’s degrading obviously haven’t lived in the hood,” the Emmy Award winner told TMZ, adding that for the people living on the street, Blueface is a hero.

“Money falling out of the sky. It’s a blessing,” she added.

“If he was throwing out ones that could be degrading, but he’s throwing out hundreds,” the 40-year-old funnywoman continued. “He’s possibly making it so people could get a room for the night so they don’t have to be in the cold.”

Some folks didn’t agree with her support of Blueface.

Former CNN pundit and Black Entertainment Television personality Dr. Marc Lamont Hill sparked a robust social media debate when he tweeted to Haddish that “I’m sorry, sis. It’s not,” referring to her quote about it being a blessing.

Agree with her agreeing with Blueface’s tactics or not, the Groupon and Lawry’s Seasoning Salt pitchwoman took a more dignified approach in being charitable during the holiday season.

Dude is like 21 and not the sharpest knife in the drawer, yes it was tacky as hell but Im not gonna sit here and question his motives with no evidence to do so. Tiffany Haddish understands being homeless a hell of a lot better than most of us since shes been there so Ive got no love for anyone trying to act like her opinion has no merit here. Folks just always looking for more shit to be upset about like we dont have enough already
