Kym Whitley Supports Mo'Nique


Last month comedian Mo'Nique sparked a national debate after calling for the boycott of Netflix over pay disparities between Black female, Black male and white female comedians [click here if you missed that].

Kym Whitely stands with Mo'Nique...

Kym tells Essence's Yes Girl podcast,
"I love the fact that the conversation is there. It's been there, she ain't been the first. The conversation's there. I just feel like her tactics are wrong. I believe she can go about it a different way, but sometimes you gotta make a lot of noise to get people to notice. My fear is that her tactics might hurt us or hurt the fight."
"Other female comedians, we secretly applaud her...She's very smart, she's very talented, you want her to win. I want her to win."

I'm glad she is supportive. Now watch people throw shade because the Obama's have a Netflix deal.

Hmm. I like her response. Safe, but she still spoke her support and spoke her mind.

This fake Jackee Harry bitch always just been comic relief on sitcoms. She just talking to talk.

She needs to go back wherever she came from.

Monique ever let her open for her? Didn't think so.

And that's the problem. Monique is being bashed because she refuses to play "safe". But I do applaud anyone in the industry who supports her publicly.

So far she has Wanda Sykes, Kimberly Elise, Kym Whitley, Isaiah Washington and Chance the Rapper on her side. If they all made a movie together and had Chance do the entire soundtrack the half a mil netflix offered would still be overpaying them raggedy mofos.

Pay Disparity & Monique's situation are totally different issues.

The insiders know Mo' is telling the truth.

Kym Whitley is full of shit, that is not what she was saying on Tom Joyner Morning show when she was yapping it up with Sherry Shepard...

Wait. Check this fake bitch wording. She's supporting her in secret. Are you serious? Why support her in secret? That doesn't change the dynamic of which this conversation needs to be had. She basically said she's still gon' shuck and jive until she gets where she needs to be, but in silence, she supports Monique. She can eat one and choke.

Kym Whitley made her point diplomatically, but Mo'Nique is still chasing a false dream. This ain't socialism. There is a reason Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle got 20 mil and Amy Schumer got 13 mil. Amy Schumer sold out Madison Square Garden twice. Mo'Nique sold out the Apollo. Both are accomplishments, but Amy Schumer sold more than 20k additional tickets per show.

Mo'Nique is bringing attention to an important issue, but right now, she doesn't have the right context to show gender or race bias.
