Tiffany Haddish cancels Atlanta show over abortion law

News outlets report that the Girls Trip star sent a statement to ticketholders Saturday, saying she cannot “in good faith” perform in Georgia unless it withdraws the so-called heartbeat bill. Unless it’s blocked in court, it’s set to go into effect in 2020. Major Hollywood studios have said they may reevaluate filming in Georgia if the law goes into effect. The new law would ban abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks, before many women know they are pregnant. The ACLU has already said the group will mount a legal challenge. Haddish had been scheduled to perform on June 22 at the Fox Theatre. 0
