Mo' Nique Asks Fans to Boycott Netflix


Comedian Mo'Nique asks fans to boycott Netflix over gender and racial bias...

In a video posted on Instagram Mo'Nique asks fans to boycott Netflix because they only offered her $500k for a comedy special after giving white comedian Amy Shumer $13 million and Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle $20 million.

Not gender OR racially biased. Shes' just not funny anymore. She's weird...

Nope. That decision was based on talent.

Monique I stand with you. Love you girl.

Amy Shumer is not even funny! Ugh

If she really believes she's worth more than $500k, then she needs to be boycotted. She has managed to alienated every opportunity, there's nothing left. She is nowhere on the level as Dave, who shows sell out everywhere he goes.

Mo has to start all over again and she can thank her gay ass husband for killing her career. What a dummy.

She is worth more than 500k. They could have at least given her 2 million. Netflix definitely has the dough. They are just being cheap asses.

Monique...you're not a big star. You gotan Oscar for a supporting role.

No one is paying money to see you in a film.

Is her husband still managing her???? That's the problem right there.

she look so crazy in that pix like she really is Precious mama. Monique is miserable and it shows.

She cuss so much makes my ears bleed she's vulgar and hardly funny not worth 50.00 with that mouth of hers.

@10:53 EXACTLY....with All this underground & online cinema taking off. Why haven't she independently Dona stand up and then Tour? Why is Monique acting like Trump with all the finger pointing.....The road she's chosen is her own selection. I thought Mo had more common sense than that

Right I thought Almost Christmas was a movie I could watch with my kids til she came on with that filthy mouth of hers... We watched Home alone instead and yes Iam black but I don't let my children watch mess.

She better snatch that half million and do a career overhaul. But she needs to snatch whatever that is here because everyone knows it's about the numbers.

Although, I won't be boycotting Netflix, I DO agree that Black entertainers are paid way less than white entertainers, particularly Black females. Some of you might not agree with Mo'Nique's antics or husband but that doesn't make her wrong for asking to get paid on par or better than other comedians. I believe in fairness. The fact is she is an Oscar winner and that should guarantee at least $2 mil on any offers. Mo'Nique still has an audience despite those of you in here who says she's not funny. There are plenty of what I would call lackluster white talent getting paid BIG bucks at Netflix.

@11:03, I am the person who made the @11:37 comment. And wow, at both of us coming to the same minimum $2 mil number lol Any who, I agree with you.

I agree Monique....Amy Schumer is a racist bitch and she's not funny. They should pay her what she's asking for. My people make me sick sometimes always putting down their own. Remember "Friends" all those white people stood together and made 1 million per episode. That show was not funny, well white people funny. The cast of "Blackish" makes nothing close to even a half million. Monique knows her value....

I agree, she can certainly ask for that amount but it does not mean she is worth it. We have to look at entertainers as tangible item. For example, like a product. They're investing in a product that has yet to exhibit any significant "return on investment". Why would I (Netflix) invest more than I believe would generate less than you're worth. The problem with Monique is she takes everything personal, which says more about where she is in life and less about the people she's pointing her finger at. Netflix threw her a bone, which is more than anyone else is doing for her, and what does she do, turn on them and ask people to boycott them. No one is going to touch her now and she just keeps digging a bigger hole for herself. If it wasn't over, it is now.

She is a NUT right now. She is not hot. She is constantly causing a problem and really should be glad that Netflix wanted to give her a standup show. She needs to get back in the mix and right now she is making it worst for her. She is ridiculous with her antics and all she is doing is hurting herself. Gurl bye. I am absolutely not boycotting Netflix cause your man is constantly telling you the wrong thing on how to grow and make moves in this business. Your ass about to be back in Bmore looking stupid.

Amy is a racist but she brings in the white numbers, her target market shows up for her and the numbers substantiate that. Mo doesn't pull those numbers but the gag is Amy will probably not be asked back.

Anonymous said...

Monique believes she should have the red carpet rolled out to her because she has an Oscar. Bitch, big fucking deal!!! Ever hear of Lou Gossett and all the other actors who won Oscars but can barely book a Tyler Perry play. Get back on your grind!

Kisses said...

I wouldn't watch a stand up with her. She just isn't funny, nor is she relevant. This isn't a dig at her, but I think if she humbled herself, she would have more opportunities. Her audience is very small, so the return I imagine doesn't justify a 2 million dollar salary.

Anonymous said...

I'm not a fan of Amy - I think she's gross, hard on the eyes, more vile than funny and over hyped. That said, and Monique's other accolades aside that have nothing to do with comedy, Amy appeals to a larger Netflix fan base than Monique. Sad, but I recall Netflix releasing data that suggested that their largest demographic is white millennials. White millennials aren't checking for Monique, but they will check for Amy who is as lazy and useless as the majority of them are.

Monique really needs to stop. Her behavior doesn't make her desirable.

I'll pass on that Monique. You just need to work on your negotiation skills or hire a professional to negotiate on your behalf.

Krysi Johnson said...

Some times people have to understand when they are in underdog status and just learn how to tough that shyt out and get back on top and in high demand. Nobody can take what GOD gave you. Take the 500k smash that shyt and when they ask for another special after you show them what you are capable of up the price on their azz...smh

Anonymous said...

Amy Schumer may not be funny to POC but she is extremely popular within the white community so she does deserve whatever money she gets because her audience supports her. Monique hasnt headlined anything in over a decade. Even when she was she wasnt on Chris and Dave level of filling seats.

Take your ass to HULU, APPLE TV, AMAZON and try and get a deal. Netflix is not the only player in town. Maybe netflix will give you an exercise show since I see you do that more than stand up.

Anonymous said...

Wait, so I should boycott Netflix because Monique didn’t get paid? Gurl Bye! All those comedians she named are at the top of the field right now. Whether people think they’re funny or not, they’re hot right now and Monique ain’t been hot for about a decade. Her attitude and shitty husband messed up her career it is what it is.

Anonymous said...

@11:49, This is @11:37 again, I respectfully disagree. I don't believe Mo'Nique is taking this "personal". There's a minimum rate that they pay white actresses and comedians and Black folks are below that minimum for doing the same work and sometimes for bringing in the same audience or more. Netflix wasn't doing Mo'Nique any favors by paying her below market rate. And if she as an Oscar winner takes it, then imagine what they will offer the next Black woman following behind her with similar credentials. From the comments in here, people are making this a "Mo'Nique has issues and should be grateful for any offers" meanwhile, Netflix is a business that doesn't operate based on our opinions in here. The facts are Hollywood offers low pay to just about *every* Black actress no matter their credentials or audience and that needs to stop.

Anonymous said...

@11:53, @12:00 and @12:20, Amy might have a larger white audience but Mo'Nique also has an audience, it's just smaller because her fans are mostly Black. Netflix would have never offered her anything if she was as outdated and "unfunny" as some on here claim she is. Oh and Mo'Nique actually *does* fill seats at her shows. That's why she was a "Queen of Comedy" and had a talk show at one point.

Anonymous said...

I'm confused. Does she not know what gender or racial biased is? This simply comes down to bigger names bringing in a bigger audience.

Monique is the perfect example of what happens when you let a man leech off of you and suck you dry. Tell me Monique, what was your reward for being married to a single man?

MO’S MOUTH AND VULGAR COMMENTS SUNK HER.

Telling Oprah to suck her dick. When Tyler called her and tried to have a dialogue she blasted him on her show the next day. Thing is you can say all this shit to your mate. Just not in public if you want to work and be taken seriously.

They paid rock and Dave because they are funny. They are black too.

Hey if Netflix is racist get in a bidding war with Starz, HBO, Showtime and TV One. Are they all racist too?

Could it be that she doesn't have much presence? She's very busy being bitter but not busy being funny.

Make a killer special and you can get them to do right on the next deal. Now there is no deal.

Anonymous said...

I bet Tiffany would get a nice deal. She's got a hot hand. Mo is cold as ice. Rock and Chappelle do stadiums. So does Schumer although I think she sucks. She had a hit movie a few years ago and isn't bitter.

Monique is worth a lot more than that bullshit amount and that Amy bitch is not even funny. That is fucked up on the part of Netflix, I ain't canceling my subscription though. Also cosign at 11:49 AM Monique is her own worst enemy, girl you been in the business long enough to know how that shit works and how fucked up it is, she really should have kept her mouth closed and not come for Tyler or Oprah, that was not a good look on her part professionally, or that damn husband filling her head with nonsense. Monique you work in a dirty corrupt cesspool industry. And that mash mouth Samamtha Bee and Amy Poehler with her mash mouth no lip self, none of those highly paid bitches are funny.

Yep i agree

Monique may be worth more than 500K but those stunts her and her husband pulled killed any worth she had after her Oscar win. She should've promoted Precious.

Anonymous said...

12.43 are you saying that just to have something to say? Monique has a show TONIGHT that you can still get tickets for. Do you know how fast Dave and Chris tickets sell out. Dave just sold out Radio City for two weeks straight. I'm not taking anything from Moe but what she is doing is equal to Ashanti (who was hot back in the days) demanding to be paid Beyonce money in 2018 when she's not even worth Michelle Williams money.

Anonymous said...

I'm with Mo on this one. Amy non funny big ugly racist arse can demand $12 million bucks, and Mo an Oscar winner can't get a million just on that award alone? That's the point of getting an Oscar win. Youare able to to negotiate higher fees. I'll never forget reading the first thing Halle said to Relvon when they congratled on her Oscar win is "ya'll going to have to pay me more money now." And guess what, they did. Halle may be cray cray in relationships, but she knew right away that her negotiation ability went up with that Oscar win. Dave Chappelle's show is flopping, and he got the transgender folks on his ass about "jokes" he made on the comedy special, so not sure how long he will be able to demand those fees. Where is Chris Rock? And like I said Amy ain't even that funny, and she's not THAT popular wiht white folks. When it comes to the fat white women I think more like Melissa McCarthy than her. THey should have at least offered a million.

she's giving me kanye teas. why you always begging somebody for some shit?? spending all that time dragging oprah, tyler and lee daniels, but at least they got their own shit.. you been in the business long enough. why don't you have your OWN shit?! all the fucked up things going on in the world and THIS the shit you wanna "boycott"? sit down u oval shaped hairy legged bitch, you ain't nobody's rosa parks!

Indigo said...

@11:03 & @11:37 I heard they did up the amount and offer 1 to 2 million and she turned it down. I'm all for fair pay, but Monique, does not pull in the audience numbers that Amy and Dave pull in to fill an area. Sorry, Monique

Anonymous said...

@1:18, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle are men. They command more money but they *still* don't get paid like their white male counterparts. Black women are the lowest on the totem pole for pay in Hollywood.

Anonymous said...

@1:21, Puhleeze lol If they are offering a Black Oscar winner $500K then they are offering Tiffany Haddish $250K and she will *gladly* take it. A lot of y'all favorite Black actresses get chump change daily. Most Black actresses' net worths are what a white actress earns for *one* movie.

Anonymous said...

Indigo, this is @11:37, if what you're saying is true, then she should have taken the $2 million but I don't believe Netflix offered it. I know how these corporations work with us. They give Will Packer shoe string budgets and expect hit movies with it. They gave him $19 million to create Girls Trip and the moved grossed over $100 million. They wouldn't *dare* give a white producer with a proven track record that small of a budget.

Lol so wait..a person wants me to boycott a service i loke bcz she thinks her salary isnt enough? Lol the nerve of those with money think that the poor will mobilize for their cause, with a word and a video lol

Ain't.

Seriously Mo, we love you girl, but you gotta understand some things. Rock & Chapelle are comic geniuses, royalty. I'm afraid you talking about what happens in your bedroom and how mad a bitch makes you for the thousandth time is not gonna net you more than what you were offered.

Now--business wise, why not take that money, go into the lab, write some TIMELESS, COMPLEX stuff, do the special and see how much of an audience you can pull? Like anything, Netflix is looking for numbers.

If you can do that, you'll have a bigger bargaining chip for next time.

No now is not the time, too much good shit on there and nobody is missing her angry ass. If this bitch would have only promoted Precious she would not be in a sunken place today.

There is no such thing as equal pay. EVERYONE'S ROLE IS ALWAYS DIFFERENT. I'm so sick of this gender pay, race pay b.s. I make more than some men at my job and some make more than me. It is what it is.

Nooooobody wants to hire and deal with another bitter black woman. Her and her open ended husband should know this. If he loved her so much and had her best interest at heart and was about getting any of that money he would have stayed home watched the fuckin kids since he don't have a job and made her STFU and play the game til she was in a position to call a shot. But shooting at the heaviest negros in the game is NOT the way to go. Nobody is boycotting a damn thing to lose with her still fat and furry ass. Tigthen up Mo.

@311. Tiffany was in one of the biggest movies of last year and has a hot hand.
Monique hasn't done anythyying of note in years. Also she won a best supporting actress Oscar and barely worked since.

Best supporting actress winners who aren't black, fat and salty have had shaky careers after winning.

That whole crew (Oprah, Lee Daniels)made about three movies since then. She could have been in any of them.She burned them. A job beats no job. How many female comedians her age can get more than $500k from Netflix? Not a one, white or black. Maybe Rosanne but she was on one of the biggest sitcoms in the past 30 years.

Netflix is giving her an opportunity. That's not discrimination. If someone else wants her services let them bid.

So in other words, publicly extort netflix out of millions of dollars on camera for all the world to see. You're a genius, Mo'nique

Miss JI said...

Monique done lost her damn mind if she thinks she can put herself in the same league as Amy Schumer, Dave Chappelle, and Chris Rock. Regardless of whether anyone thinks they’re funny, talented or whatever, THEIR names and fan bases justify millions of dollars in deals. Monique does not. She needs to run the club circuit or pitch a bootleg reality show or something. Get on PBS...hell I dont know but stop trying to extort Netflix. Her damn fans probably don’t even have Netflix.

Anonymous said...

Half a million dollars isn't bad if no one else is offering you more than that amount. In any occupation, if you don't continue upgrade your skill set, you become complacent and obsolete to your employer and potential employers. In her defense, she has a nice little resume. Back in the day she was the queen of comedy, had her own sitcom, appeared in movies. I could be mistaken, but she got nominated for best actress in her role in Precious. But, that was yeteryear. Hollywood is about what have you done for me lately. In her case, it doesn't appear to be very much. Sis should have taken the money and kept her mouth shut.

Anonymous said...

Her comedy isn't even funny shit is mean spirited. She not even kidding how she feel about a skinny chick. Netflix tried to extend the olive branch but chubby chewed it. Now everyone that is currently on there should be done with her because she tried to cut their money short. Now Tracy Ellis Ross may well get a huge pay increase but she is worth it. She deserves and is worth it. this bitch here trying to be part of a movement when she is not the move.

I liked her so much on The Parkers;sad thing what 'pride' (and mismanagement) can do...

1. Funny is relative. Amy Schumer may not be funny to you, but she is funny to a whole lotta folks that apparently have (or share) Netflix subscriptions.

2. I agree with the earlier poster...Chris Rock and Dave Chappell have both sold out a bunch of shows and got a number of viewers to tune in to the specials.

3. $500,000 is not chump change. If she is that serious and willing to bank on herself, take the half million, do a half hour, negotiate for a longer 2nd special based upon the results from the first special.

4. It's kind of selfish to ask folks to boycott something when you are getting offered more than what most folks will make in a lifetime.
