Mo'Nique Produces Netflix Receipts


Last month comedian Mo'Nique came under fire for turning down a $500k deal from Netflix after reports she had been initially offered $3 million [click here if you missed that].

Boom, Pow, and thank God for receipts. That contract was wack, slave driving and not up to par for an Oscar winner. Monique may not be an Eddie Murphy but she did a great job of making herself a great career before the Precious drama. I loved watching Queens of Comedy and The Parker's. Regardless of how we feel about Monique, she paved the way and broke glass ceilings for a lot of black female comedians. Y'all watch her in HBO's Bessie. She got talent.

NO ONE IS BOYCOTTING FOR HER! She needs to sit down.

I'm confused. The email clearly says that all terms are confidential........so is she legally allowed to say all of the things she has already spoken of without getting sued?

Anyone can manipulate an email, and this looks like it's been tampered with, so...it may have not been 3 million, but really, she's dumb. She should have used this for future deals and never mention how much she got...also, Jawn Murray is a loser, can't stand him.

Not supporting Jew ownership.

SOMETHING IS STILL MISSING. Notice that the original email was sent on December 13, 2017, and the final one was sent on January 18, 2018. The January 18 email refers to a phone call the previous day during which they weren't able to come to an agreement. The second email from Jamal, writing on behalf of Netflix, sounds like Netflix considered Mo'Nique's counteroffer, but it was too high, and they couldn't negotiate further. I think there is some truth to Jawn Murray's account, even if the numbers aren't exactly right. If Mo' could've cleared a mil after production costs, she should have taken it. Actually, she should have taken the original deal and cut the production costs down to $100k. I mean, this is a COMEDY special, not a music special. Lighting and sound shouldn't cost as much, and she wouldn't need dancers and choreography and such.

@12:53 she was good in Bessie. Loved it!

Anonymous said...

There are 13 emails in that chain. She showed two. Also doesn't mean there wasn't a verbal offer.

They weren't rude to her or her agent manager. She fucked up her business. Who else would even negotiate with her now?

Also notice she didn't dispute shaking down Will Packer on the Christmas movie.

Mo’Nique BYE! Netflix ain’t giving you 20 million, point, blank PERIOD! Notice she’s doing all this and Netflix hasn’t released one statement even addressing it. If that doesn’t say that they aren’t checking for you, then I don’t know what will.

Monique must hurting for cash...

Ok and she’s still broke and blacklisted... I guess she really showed them. She went from getting low-balled to getting NO-balled. Did she even try to negotiate before she ran to the public calling for a boycott? Where’s the emails of her going back and forth atleast trying to get a higher (realistic) figure. She was lowballed but she is also completely delusion when she told Sway she deserves 20 million like Dave and Chris.

go away big girl and take that wack husband of yours with u... thanks!

I think that we all can collectively agree that Monique is vey talented. With that being said she is not working the typical 9-5 gig...that most of us endure evey week...the entertainment industry is no joke..and if she is not willing to dance with devils are career will meet its demise! We love you girl...but please get your mind right regarding these fools you are dealing with...and please allow your husband to be your husband and not your spokes person. He is turninh your fans off!

Is she even going to attempt to answer to the fact that numerous people have said she’s a terror to work with. And that she was a nightmare on the set of Almost Christmas... It’s really strange that she responds to everything else when setting the record straight, yet the many claims that her and her husband’s nasty attitudes have contributed to her downfall... she conveniently never addresses.

All this negative energy she doing the most. she could have been done the special and moved on to the next bigger thing. Hopefully she can wrap this shit up by Spring and the birds will come out and the bees will sing.

Monique is starting to look more Baltimore and less Hollywood in appearance.

I hate to say it but she can never go back to the stardom she once had. She is forever locked out. Not even white Hollywood will work with her now.

Monique dumb ass broke husband must be the ONLY one pumping her big ass head up making her think she a legend. Meanwhile
Tyler Perry
Oprah
Lee Daniels

Laughing their ass off! Like I told you so. 500k for 1 hour. Nextflix can sue. SMDH!

Get rid of that tired husband! Dude bringing you down. Now NOBODY gone mess with Monique and if they do they gone nickel and dime her dumb ass. Next step for Monique is Mc Donalds or EBT card.

The hell with Monique.... I just got Netflix 3 weeks ago... what shows, movies are you all watching? how do i search for more stuff

Anonymous said...

what does it mean if we criticize a woman for trying to fight for her worth? Shouldn’t we celebrate or encourage it? The amount and he said she said stuff is irrelevant. If she is hard to work with or whatever the case is that doesn’t mean she isn’t talent that she didn’t contribute a lot to entertainment. Hell we all know people that are assholes but they know their worth and fight for it. And I’m bias because Im going something similar. I want a raise and I have to prove myself. I just don’t like the bashing of her.

3:24....I can live just fine knowing you don't like the "bashing" of this clueless woman. She's FINISHED. DONE. It's OVER. Now, PLEASE go AWAY. No one cares.

bella bella said...

These selfies of her looking in the camera are getting ridiculous. Weird close up head shots with the same crazy expression.

Anonymous said...

Any smart business minded person would have used this an opportunity to get into the homes of millions of people around the world and build her brand. It’s what happens in the creative industry, you take big jobs for small fees sometimes, in order to get more exposure. Big mistake on her part

"Monique is a terror to work with"

Many male actors are out here raping and molesting children and adults. That is true terror. And they still get paid fairly, not less than anyone else doing the same work on their movies and television shows.

black woman hating coons.

Monique provided receipts but you still want to sit under that stalker Jawn Murray who is being used by Netflix and Will Packer to cover their asses.

That bitch is being used like a Condom. Notice Jawn Murray is not even addressing that Gabrielle Union, Monique, Nicole Ari Parker, Danny Glover, Kimberly Elise etc all made under $1 million for his movie that made $42 million.

They paid them $1 million TOTAL, TOGETHER, not each, but as a group.

That was the casting budget for a Black movie.

Why not address that in the leaks Will Parker?

3:56 & 4:00 ok so what exactly do y’all want us to do for Mo’Nique? Have you offered to give up your paychecks or start a go fund me to give Mo’Nique the money she thinks she “deserves”? Or are we supposed to give up our Netflix accounts that neither y’all or Monique is paying for? I just don’t understand what Mo’Nique and you supporters of hers want us to do for her. If she knew how to play the game she could’ve built her brand after her Oscar win and owned her own empire like Oprah, Steve Harvey, or Tyler Perry. She didn’t! She made a bad name for herself and now is blacklisted yet she’s still begging the white powers that br to throw her a bone... and they ain’t gonna do it, so what exactly are we supposed to do about it? People are out here with real problems so excuse if I’m not crying tears for poor little rich Mo’Nique. If she somehow gets a multi million dollar deal from Netflix or somewhere else is she gonna invest that money back into the same community she’s trying to get to rally behind her or is she like the rest of the 1% going to keep it to herself?

....And the dumbest bitch of the year who has pissed off everyone in hollywood including me goes to.......(drum roll)

MONIQUE!!!

Well,In her prime she could've of gotten ownership to get residuals. Now, I guess Monique is going to have to keep doing those ghetto underground movies like "3 strikes." LOL Why are all her acting roles in movies is her being righteous (harassing), sexual (harassing) and nicca (harassing)? hmmmmmm??? It's a "No" for me

Anonymous said...

Why don't she take her money and star in and produce her own comedy and sell it to her fans? Oh wait what money. So what's next is she gone sell her Oscar? Why is she tripping off Netflix? Shouldn't she be busy with gigs lined up for her all year? Oh wait. What idiot gone pay to see a fat loud mouth corny D List black balled has been broke ass granny looking like she rob banks and shit.

@3:21 p.m. Narcos is the shit. Black Mirror will fuck your world up.

Chrissy Snow said...

I'm confused by the public reaction. Monique has done nothing more than ask for the money she feels she's worth earning. She is doing the same thing White women are whining about in the media and being crucified for doing so. I don't always agree with Monique's actions but I support her this time around.

AJ said...

@321 Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, The Defenders, Ozark, Black Mirror, Dear White People, Friends From College, etc. So many!

@8:23 that would be fine if she ended it there. She is the one that asked for every one to boycott.

These comments are a great example of why black people are at the bottom. Even the Bible says that God said his people are dumber than a jackass and an ox, who are the dumbest animals. People hating on this woman but bugging up pedophile entertainers, rapists, coons, bedwenches. It's simply amazing.

These comments are a great example that Monique is commenting on RWS.
Her ladyboy huzzband said they would respectively keep it moving because they agreed to disagree. Next day she calling them out for racism, sexism and anything else she can think of.

You can especially tell that the comment calling ole boy who aired her out, a stalker is her fat ass who don't have time for the gym no mo cause he doesn't care how skinny she gets. He wants OTHER pussy and STILL will if she got 50 million.

Mo boo he's just not that into YOU.

Anonymous said...

@9:50 your comment is crazy as hell! We have the right to our opinions because Monique brought this issue "to us". A smart decision would have been decline the offer...and kept it moving. By acknowledging the financial terms of the Netflix deal ...other industry reps probably will not make her any offers. We love monique, this is just not the right way to go about it.

Anonymous said...

The 3 Million story was an unconfirmed rumor. As it stands based on what she's said. They offered her 500,000. Sydney came back and asked why they gave the white lady 12 Mill and Dave/Chris got 20 Million. Netflix isn't about to give her any Millions so they told her "no thank you".

10:45 and you know this a'int the right way how?? Bet you Monique will retire a happy fulfilled paid woman hope you will too.

Anonymous said...

@6:40 no sorry i don't have it like that! I only grossed 60k last year...and if Netflix would offer me 500K to do a few hours work...umm...this wouldn't be a conversation of discussion. I am smart enough to know that would have been "seed money" to start my own project. As a former entrepreneur I did not have the luxury to turn down 500K....but regardless I hope Monique will continue to do what is best for her.

Didn’t Amy Schumer do the same thing? She heard rock was getting 20 and she claimed sexism, and got her bag. She’s doing the same thing. And I believe it. I’m not going to compare the talent of Dave Chappell’s and Monique but wasn’t he black balled for years? Wasnt he supposed to be crazy for the last 10 years or so? He has a cult like following that are in high positions now. But he couldn’t get work for a long time. Nobody like Monique because she’s is hard to work with or whatever. Idk her personally but I don’t trust the media enough to believe that this woman with all her accomplishments is offered so much less money. It’s business and maybe she should take that money but she could sell her next special to anyone for 12-24 months. But she should go on the road and remind people why she was the queen of comedy.

Just an observation said...

❤️ you, Mo'nique! Cancelled my Netflix a couple of months ago. Don't need both, Netflix and Directv!

Anonymous said...

I am sick of this story. Just go away already. I have no sympathy for anyone who turns down that kind of money, ever!

Anonymous said...

Monique may be unsophisticated, dick whipped, and a terror to work with, but I do believe that women and minorities continue to experience discrimination when it comes to equal pay. Whether she was a victim of this practice or not, I don't know. But if there are any shenanigans going on over at Netflix they better clean that mess up. Cause the next person to make the claim may not be as draggable as Mo antique.
