Catching a peek at the Oscars is no easy task. Celebrities invest a lot of their time and thought into it.

When journalist Lauren Zima called Tifanny Haddish’s red carpet look for the 2022 Oscars after-party a “costume,” the comedian had an appropriate response that has since gone viral.

However, the interview was quite awkward as Tifanny continued to comment that Lauren had no shoes on after the reporter commented on the star’s dress.

What did Lauren Zima tell Tiffany Haddish?

Lauren is a reporter for Entertainment Tonight and she interviewed celebrities at the 94th Academy Awards.

When Tiffany arrived in a custom lime green Dolce & Gabbana dress for the Oscars after-party, Lauren asked her, “Did you do a little costume change?”

The comment didn’t sit well with Tiffany and she corrected the reporter saying, “I’m not wearing a suit. I wear Dolce and Gabbana. It’s called an evening dress, honey.

“This is not an acting gig, this is my life. This is what fame looks like. This is what success looks like. This is what money looks like. This is what it looks like, this is what it looks like looks like,” she replied.

The comedian also made some remarks about the journalist’s appearance. She said, “You here with no shoes on, I’m jealous. You’re not uncomfortable or anything, right? I know because you’re not wearing heels. I’m uncomfortable but I look fine.

Twitter reacts to viral red carpet interview

The last Oscars gave viewers a lot, including Tiffany’s viral interview.

Reacting to the comedian’s response to the journalist, a tweeted: “Now if @TiffanyHaddish would have slammed the shit out of the interviewer who called her costume dress, I could understand, but look how Tiffany handled it like the comedian she is! “Coming back is always sweet!”

“Yeah, like why did she call it a costume? Like Tiffany Haddish was supposed to be a show or something. This drag was well deserved,” noted another one.

A fan with an opposing opinion wrote“I don’t understand Tiffany Haddish all the time. Clothes are often referred to as costumes and costume changes in the entertainment industry. Why was that offensive? Keep in mind that my job is a wardrobe stylist and costume designer.

“Costume design” has largely been reserved for characters and/or performers, which is why stylists for TV shows and movies aren’t called stylists, they’re costume designers. On the red carpet, Tiffany Haddish was out of character. She was herself. The proper term is wardrobe,” tweeted a.

The comedian shows his support for Will Smith

Besides her response to Lauren, Tiffany is also making headlines for showing her support for Will Smith after his incident with Chris Rock.

“When I saw a black man standing up for his wife, it meant so much to me,” she told PEOPLE.

“As a wife, who hasn’t been protected, someone saying, ‘Keep my wife’s name out of your mouth, leave my wife alone,’ that’s what your husband’s supposed to do, n ‘is this not ? Protect yourself,” she added.

She also noted that the moment “meant the world” to her.
