NEW YORK — Tiffany Haddish is keeping mum on that infamous Beyoncé chomp.
In March, the comedian set Twitter ablaze when she told GQ that she knew which celebrity bit Beyoncé’s face at a party last December, but wouldn’t say who. When asked again by an audience member at Turner’s upfront presentation in New York Wednesday, she pretended like she didn’t hear the question.
“Huh? What? Excuse me?” Haddish joked, holding her hand to her ear. “Any real questions?”

Haddish was in town to “sell” her TBS sitcom The Last O.G. to advertisers (co-star Tracy Morgan was absent), but “we did that already: It’s on air and we got picked up for a second season,” she said. “It’s going to be even better the next season, because I’m in it.”
She delivered a short comedy set onstage at the Madison Square Garden Theater, where she offered her services as a spokesperson (“I’m really good at it — just ask Groupon”) and revealed she plans to recycle her white Alexander McQueen gown yet again when she hosts the MTV Movie and TV Awards next month.

Full Frontal host Samantha Bee was also on hand to announce a new mobile app, This is Not a Game, in conjunction with her TBS late-night show. The Game is an HQ-style trivia contest available this summer that aims to raise awareness for the midterm elections in November while giving players the chance to win prizes.
“Encouraging (people) to be informed, vote and win stuff is truly what the Founding Fathers would’ve wanted,” Bee said. “Plus, the game is surprisingly nonpartisan. I don’t care what your political fetish is: Democrap. Republican’t. Cuckservative. We all need to vote before a Russian hacker does it for us.”
