"All of that would have to come out of my pocket," Haddish said. "I don't know if this might mean I might not get nominated ever again, but I think it's disrespectful."
The star — who's been previously nominated in the Best Comedy and Best Spoken Word album categories — then went on to say that she'd had "enough," because "as much as I appreciate the honor of being nominated, that's not okay."
"This is something that needs to be addressed," she continued. "How many other people have they done that to? It's like a guy asking you on a date but telling you that you have to pay for it."
In response to Haddish's interview, the Recording Academy's interim chief, Harvey Mason Jr., apologized for the controversy in a video posted to his Instagram.
"I'm frustrated by that decision," he said, before claiming that the cheap offer was made by a talent booker. "It was a lapse in judgment, it was in poor taste, and it was disrespectful to the creative community — I'm part of the creative community and I know what that feels like, and it's not right."
