Mo'Nique Compares Steve Harvey to a Scared Slave


This week comedian Mo'Nique sat down with Steve Harvey to discuss her being blackballed in Hollywood after refusing to promote the movie 'Precious' in the lead up to her 2010 Oscar win without additional compensation after only receiving $50,000 for her role in the box office blockbuster [click here if you missed that].

Mo'Nique compares Steve's argument to one of a scared slave...

wasn't her boycott of Netflix behind wanting more money?

Black people are creative, by default. We can never go hungry when we produce value and solve problems.

Always be mindful of how you treat others. Maintain dignity.

9:14 AM <--- Ohhh boyyy, here come the dumbasses.

Wanting to be properly compensated for your craft is not the same thing as compromising yourself for money.

I like Steve, sometimes he says things that really resonate, about being brave enough to chase your dreams and never giving up. But he has made a bunch of suss statements in the past.

The way he told his son he forbade him from wearing dreadlocks said a lot to me. You basically telling him your personal expression/identity as a young black man means nothing, you're gonna look how white people want you to look so you can get a job.

I'm glad Monique is sticking to her guns. And even with the Netflix thing, I see where she was coming from but it was from a place of not knowing how Netflix operated when giving their offers. Big ups to Katt Williams for actually spitting REAL game to her and letting her know (strategically and business wise) how to get that big check from Netflix. He basically told her, "It's not cuz you're black, not cuz you're a woman. Netflix only cares about what numbers you did LAST YEAR... so tour, get your money up, then come back to them with receipts SHOWING what you made." That's real love, not this coon mess coming from Steve Harvey.

I just really wish Mo aka Little Richard would sit down and shut up. At the end of the day she agreed to do Precious for $50K. Nobody else. She opened her mouth and talked bad about Oprah, Tyler Perry and Lee Daniels. Own it. Now she wants black people to back her up regardless of the effect it will have on their livelihood. GTFOH! Please do a Wendy Williams and disappear, and take yo husband with you.
