Comedian Tiffany Haddish cancelled her June 22 show in Atlanta in protest over Georgia’s controversial new abortion law. The “heartbeat” abortion law bans the procedure as soon as a doctor can detect fetal cardiac activity, which typically happens about six weeks into a pregnancy.
“After much deliberation, I am postponing my upcoming show in Atlanta,” Haddish said in a statement. “I love the state of Georgia, but I need to stand with women and until they withdraw Measure HB481, I cannot in good faith perform there.” Haddish was scheduled to perform at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. The venue offered refunds to anyone who bought tickets to the show.
