Mo'nique Produces Comedy Receipts


Last week comedian Mo'nique called for a Netflix boycott after she was offered $500k for a comedy special while white comedian Amy Shumer received $12 million [click here if you missed that].

After declaring herself the most decorated comedian alive Mo'Nique produces her receipts....

In a video posted on Instagram Mo'Nique compares her box offer numbers to Amy Shumer's while standing in front of her trophy case.

Well she kind of has a point with the numbers. But can she elaborate? That's one movie comparison what else can you compare in recent time? Also why keep speaking on Amy? Elaborate on Dave Chappell and Chris Rock on how your numbers compare to thiers? Don't just keep calling out the white woman. I agree that 500k is a lowball for Monique but I think Khia and Funky Dineva said it best... Take what you can now to show people you're still on top of your game THEN ask for more second go round. Your resume is what you've done in the past which is still very relevant. But what can you do NOW...people need to see that before making bigger investments. Get rid of the negativity attached to your name and start working. We love you too Monique

I can't scrollnthrough my timrline for a whole day without seeing "know your worth'. She is correct that she is being lowballed. She is an Oscar winner. Whlie her audience may not be as broad as male comdeians or white female comediennes, we can't keep allowing ourselves to be undervalued. Thus contributes to the culture of black inferiority within our race. This is why you don't have a black doctor, dentist, nail tech, bash Ciar and Ashanti, choose Justin Timberlake over Usher and celebrTe when tour son graduates high school as if it is a real accomplishment. Monique, no one is going to boycott Netflix. We hate ourselves and we feign outrage when it is convenient. Like the NFL, we just needed that one day of the week, 3 months out of the year entertainment. We couldnt live with out it. As a collective whole, we Re failing ourselves and fully complicit in our own oppression. You would have been better off pandering to the support of women. Who am I kidding? Kudos to you for taking a stand. If you don't belueve in your talent and worth, who will?

"In the United States, we have been culturally conditioned to believe white is superior and black inferior. This leads us to be underestimated, undervalued and marginalized" - Joe Madison, Sirius XM Urban View

Truer words have never been spoken. Not to be facetious, but they would offer Meryl Streep more than 500K for a stand up comedy show based just on her resume alone and she's not even a comedian. Just like Monique should be offered more than 500K for a serious role (i.e. Precious) and she is usually not considered a serious actor. We have to stop making excuses. They are disrespecting our black female performers. Period.

Mo speak the truth and shame the devil. Male comedians with less popularity keep going for her and she snatch that wig off.

On a side note, she and her husband looked very aged. I don’t know maybe it’s the grey hair?

Look here to everybody above typing this black shit and that black shit. Its called negotiations. She felt she should get paid more....they felt she didnt. It is PLENTY of other venues for her to make the money she deserves but all this boycott bullshit and #knowyourworth nonsense. It's business...is the business bs alot of times? Hell yes especially to minorities. But with all the issues plaguing middle and lower class blacks nowadays, we dont have the fucking time to get up in arms about some millionaire pissed you didnt get the offer she wanted. We gotta bigger fish to fry but we stay on this Hollywood entertainment shit like this is the only venue for our people to ascend. She rich, she'll be ok

^^^THANK YOU. Black folk got a whole lot more to worry about than how many hundreds of thousands a comedian will/will not get. We out here just trying to survive to see another day.

We know our worth--and it's in fighting to stay alive, NOT lobbying for a comedienne who has lived a life that most of us will never experience.

Uhh. I hear her. I guess. But why she look like that? She doing no make up like Alicia? She needs better management. This is not the way. Even if she want to continue with the "boycott" message. They need better delivery. And some hair dye...

IDC what you DID, what are you DOING NOW that warrants you getting 12 MILLION????? Let's see THOSE receipts, please!

I see a lot of unnecessary name calling in here. Why can't some of you respectfully disagree? She has to be all types of "bitches". Also, what's the deal with y'all bringing up her management/husband Sydney all the time? You would think we would be happy to see a Black woman with a Black man backing her and telling her she's worthy and the greatest. Instead, some of you have all types of conspiracy theories that he's only after her for her money. But how is he after her for her money if she's not earning none and hasn't been "hot" in a very long time? Wouldn't he have divorced her by now by y'all standards of her earning potential and what's "hot"? lol

@8:26 and @8:39, You both are purposely missing the point and using lower income and middle class Black families as scapegoats. Yes, there are *multiple* issues that plague Black people. And unfair wages/salaries/pay is one of them. Stop saying that we have to focus on. If this isn't your cause, cool. You can be quiet. But this is one of my causes and I actively work and fight against it in my large organization. This affects lower and working class Black women as well. Just because Mo's check is bigger and it's money *you* won't ever see, doesn't mean lowballing Black female talent isn't an issue.

@10:58. Because in L.A., there are dudes who will latch on when all the woman has is a studio apartment in a working class neighborhood and a 10 year old Toyota. They will do anything to enjoy the L.A. life without paying full rent. Big girls/women are the main target because of the self-esteem issue some of them have.

Don't tell people to negotiate elsewhere when the wage gaps spans across industries. This issue needs to be handled as a whole!

Anonymous said...

@11:44, My point was if he really wanted her for her money then he would be gone. The reason I say this is because folks have stated several times and on multiple platforms that Mo'Nique isn't "relevant" and she should have taken the $500K because she's broke and "needs" the money. Idk how they know her financial standing but that's what they are claiming lol So if Sydney is after her for just money and fame, her ship has sailed according to y'all so why not divorce her and move on to his next meal ticket?

Love you Monique. Proud of you girl.

why is Amy Shumer being paid so much?? She is not worth all that money. Monique's resume is filled with big numbers and prestige

Anonymous said...

Monique IS funny. She's funny as hell. I don't care how vulgar because that's how comedy can go. Nobody says anything about Katt being vulgar cause that nigga is funny af too.
This is HER cause and she deserves the platform to fight it.
People mess up all the time hell we all do. She deserves a chance to get back up and get her shit back together like everybody else. I wish her nothing but the best.

WHAT HAPPENED WAS SAID...Mo got that Oscar and got that tv show where she was host and became intolerable and unbearable and it all went to hear head. Her staff could not look her in the eye and she made everyone address her as Oscar Winner Monique. What is funny is how the tables turn. Happy Humble pie

Our great grand parents and grand parents cared about what was happening to Black folks and cared about making things better for the generations coming behind them. Black people today are not built like that. We won't organize and truly
long term boycott anything because we are not willing to make any real sacrifices or be inconvenienced.

@12:06 I understand but my counter is where is he gonna go now? Dude wasn't that great looking to begin with so that,bisexual rumors and the possibility that he's ruining Mo's career don't make him much of a catch.

Even though Whoopi got the ERGOT, Paul Mooney in my opnion is a more decorated comedian, he wrote for Red Fox, Richard Pryor and probably many others, Paul never got his dues and he's a brilliant comedian, I don't hear him complaining. The reality is we all know that unfunny ass Amy is not worth that money and yes Mo they low balled your ass. Okay now stop crying about it go somewhere else and give pure fire, also that nigga you married is one of the many reasons why yo shit is fucked up, this nigga posing up to trophy's and shit like he helped won them. I swear these women Alexis K Tylor ain't neva lied dick will make you slap somebody. This is the reason you don't put yo man in your business affair unless the nigga got the expertise. Shit I got a gas bill 265 a month in the winter from them thieving ass Gas South hoes in Georgia, I'm not riding with Mo and her woe of half a million dollars, shit rich people's problems Next!!!

@2:59, Sydney is not bisexual. You should ask Lee Daniels what happened when he tried him....*sips tea*

Anonymous said...

@4:05, Paul Mooney actually tweeted out in support of Mo'Nique. And he replied to numerous people who came in his mentions to try to tell him why he's wrong for his support. These young kids are disrespectful.

Mo'Nique blog posts and YouTube videos are getting the *most* comments and views compared to some stuff that's been posted for weeks. Many bloggers and YouTubers are making some coint this week. So strange for a lady that's been labeled as "irrelevant" and nobody is/was checking for her....according to y'all.

She needs to give it a rest.

@5:46 no she doesn't. This is her lively hood so she needs to fight for it. Who the hell are you to tell her to stop!. Mo do your thang! Fuck Netflix! Take your talent to someone that appreciates it for what it is.

@6:56: You explained it well. I agree she is gonna have to start making up momentum again. She isn't out yet, she just gotta build up momentum. This is why some artists don't take long breaks cause while you take a break, someone newer and younger is out there ready and able to take your spot.

Monique is accomplished no doubt and has a point the problem is she got a fucked up attitude and she ahs proven when given the chance she carries herself very unprofessional and the arrogance exudes her that the shit that got her scrapping and Wanda should STFU and not mention nothing about a white woman after marrying and licking ones ass for years.
