Wanda Sykes Supports Mo'Nique Netflix Boycott


Last week comedian Mo'Nique urged fans to boycott Netflix because they only offered her $500k for a comedy special after giving comedian Amy Shumer $12 million [click here if you missed that].

Fellow comedian Wanda Sykes says Netflix tried to lowball her, too...

She's got a point. Damn Oscar don't mean NOTHING to a woman of color...don't believe me? Ask Halle Berry, Jennifer Hudson and Lupita. And Beyonce wants one soooo badly. Why? So she can say she has one? Hollywood is so full of shit.

Neither one of y’all are RELEVANT! What is wrong with y’all?! Netflix is in the BUSINESS of making money. Point blank.

Amy Schumer isn't half as funny as either of these women and we all know it.

Thankya Wanda who issa funny! If ya don't stand for something...u know the rest.

The most important info in Wanda's tweet, is "she found another network" and kept it moving. Mo needs a New agent & management to negotiate better deals. Also, if the $500k was on top of production costs, she Fuked herself bcuz she not hot right now with a mere 224k IG followers

Do your thing Monique. I cancelled my Netflix account last month. Too many lame original series.

Monique looks absolutely bitter and possessed due to her own thirsty ness to have a man, allowing him to sample any pussy he likes looks like its eating her alive

Monique pay attention to what Wanda did..she went to another company, you should too. It's not like Netflix is the only game in town.

Wandy Sykes was never funny to me.

Neither of them have ever been my favorite but c'mon! $250K? Do their bodies of work and accolades mean nothing. You could argue that Mo'Nique is no relevant but Wanda Sykes is on Blackish right now and has never stopped working. All this "you not hot right now" is some bullshit. We hadn't heard from Dave Chappelle in how many years before he got a 3 show deal?? I thought that negro was dead. DeRay Davis...irrelevant as fuck...still playing clubs...$5 mil...why?
So if relevancy is really the issue, I guess that would put someone like Eddie Murphy in the $250K range, right? I mean we haven't seen him work since the last Shrek and that wasn't even an on screen appearance! GTFOH. They both got lowballed.

Y'all making up all sorts of excuses for Netflix's low-ball offers....I hope y'all have stock with them lol They are offering low pay to Black female entertainers despite their audience or credentials. Last week the excuse was, Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock had a larger fan base and are more relevant. Now that Wanda has spoken out, you can't use the audience excuse but y'all are using the "she's not relevant". Despite the fact that Wanda has won numerous awards, has had her own show and has written for Chris Rock's show and comedy special :-/

@1:34 and 2:18 EXACTLY!!!

Some people are SO use to being mistreated that they don't even question the logic being fed to them.

When you point out how illogical it is...they just keep saying that 2+2=5

Small minded people can't see the bigger picture.

Monique needs to go the independent route or find another home.

BUT either way Netflix needed to be exposed and there is no getting around that.

It's time for another Queen of Comedy
# screw netflix

My opinion Mo,Nique and Wanda sykes humpty hump man nose having ass lol was ever funny as stand up.

if it wasnt for Chris Rock and her lesbian fanbase Wanda woudnt have made it this far..

An Mo,Nique needs new material for netflix. she cant go on stage bashing skiny women anymore because HELL shes skiny now lol

She in her mid 50's now. Nobody wants to hear about her sex life. she lacks creative

Im all for women deserve equal opportunities and black empowerment.. Mo,Nique would a waste netflix time and money especially in this new generation.. She better ask Anthony Anderson for a spot on black-ish

So what we're supposed to make NF pay them more? Sorry they offered. U dont like it take your ass on and get paid elsewhere. When in need, call on your fellow blacks to boycott YOUR salary...lol foh

Just an observation said...

12 million??? Hell!! Amy Schumer ain't that damn funny. Monique is an Oscar winner and should have been offered more than $500,000. They lowballed the shit out of her.

@3:52/Lady, How did Chris Rock "make" Wanda Sykes when she was the one writing his jokes? What sense does that make? lol Many of your favorite comedians would not be your favs had people like Wanda Sykes not created their jokes. Understand how *REAL* talent works.

Monique never networked when it was Oscar season. She's lazy and expects things to be handed to her per her fugly husband who gives the worst advice to anyone in Hollywood. I think Monique's problem is her negotiation skills. SHE HAS NONE, her idea of negotiating is airing out the business any multimillionaire who tells her no.

Wanda is a dyke. She should learn to suck dick.

@ 7:01 you and 3:52 are grabbing at straws because every other excuse that has been submitted by those who "agree" with Monique getting low balled has been debunked, dismissed, and flat out disprove.

But keep reaching tho...

As a black woman it is imperative that you say Hell No to wack deals.
You have to know your worth and let them know.
They basically offered her 50 cent and offered Wanda 25 cent.

Total BS

DeRay Davis stale ass getting $5mil is all I needed to hear.

8:34, this is 7:01 I thought about it last night and you're right. She is being low balled. I honestly just hate that her husband gives her bad advice. If Tiffany Haddish is low balled, then I have a problem.

R.BROWN said...

FOR 3:52 WELL MY FAVORITES ARE MARTIN LAWRENCE, JAMIE FOXX, EDDIE MURPHY,BERNIE MAC

WANDA SKYES ONLY WORKED WITH CHTIS ROCK, DAVE CHAPPELLE AND KEENEN IVORY WAYANS

Here's the thing. Dave Chappelle has been doing shows here and there after he came back from his break. Wanda Sykes continues to work. Monique just has to get back out there in order to get her hype back out. She is right. I find both Wanda and Monique funny, and I have watched their stand up specials. But right now Amy is all over the place, in stand ups, her comedy show on Comedy Central, her movies--so right now she is one of the 'it' comedienne's even if she isn't THAT funny. Its a matter of demand.
