Looks like there might be trouble in TV paradise between co-stars Tracey Morgan and uber talented Tiffany Haddish.
In the TBS series The Last OG, Morgan’s character, Tray, has just been released from a 15-year stint in prison on good behavior and now must try to reassimilate into society. But along with all the changes to society itself, he runs into a personal change that shocks him as well: his girlfriend, played by Haddish, has totally transformed.
Tray and Shay broke up when he was in prison, with Tray hoping to spare her from the heartbreak of having to wait for him. But now, Shay has gone from a tough street girl to an ultra-refined socialite who is married to a white man.
Tracey Morgan sat down for a recent interview with Vulture and it looked like he wanted to keep all the attention to himself.
But Lil Rel Howrey, who co-starred with Haddish in the short-lived Carmichael Show, wasn’t having it. The comedian, who has his own new comedy series REL premiering this fall, posted a message calling out Morgan:
This is one hating ass dude right here that show would be nothing if @TiffanyHaddish wasn’t on it… Don’t bite the hand that keeps you relevant!!!

Clearly Tiffany Haddish has bigger things to focus her attention with several movie projects in the works.
She stars alongside Kevin Hart in the September release for what looks to be the comedy of the year, Night School.
She’ll also star opposite one of our other favorites, Melissa McCarthy in a film based on a 2014 comic book series, which is filming now.
In The Kitchen is reportedly a classic mob story that takes place in 1970s Hell’s Kitchen and follows a group of Irish mobsters who are sent to prison, prompting their wives to take over the organized crime operation and who become more ruthless and vicious than their gangster husbands ever were.
So, what do you think? Is Morgan just a Haddish hater?
