“What up, y’all? Now, I’m in Inglewood [and I’m] trying to go to the Habesha party,” she quipped in a follow-up video on Thursday night. “Trying to get my East African on. You know, I’ve been partying with the white people. Now, I’m trying to party with my East Africans and they won’t let me in the club. They won’t let the hot dish in.”

Haddish was previously arrested for a DUI back in January of 2022. At the time, Atlanta officers responded to a call of someone sleeping behind the wheel as well.


The actress was booked for the DUI at the time and improper stopping on a roadway. The star was released several hours later after posting bond.

“I’ve been praying to God to send me a new man. A good man. And God went ahead and sent me four … in uniform,” Haddish joked during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon later that month, also poking fun at her breakup from Common. “And now I got a really great lawyer, and we’re going to work it out. I’ve got to get my asking of things to God a little better!”

She concluded: “I wasn’t expecting it.”

The star has been known to drive a Tesla, and many on social media were quick to respond about the incident seeing that this is now the second DUI for the comedian. There has been no official statement from the star as of this time or her team.
