Monique Outraged by Whoopie Goldberg's Lack of Concern for Younger Comedians


In a candid new interview comedian Mo'Nique blasts Whoopie Goldberg for accepting far less than she's worth for co-hosting The View and for telling Mo'Nique not to worry about helping comics coming up behind her...
 
Mo'Nique tells Comedy Hype,
"Whoopie Goldberg told me the salary she makes from The View and that hurt my feelings that you been there for ten years and you accept them paying you that and you telling me don't worry about the little ones coming up." 
"Got damn if I don't have to be worried about you, too! Because you accept that salary that makes it hard for me! And how hard do you think it's gonna make it for the ones who ain't here yet because you accept that salary."

Thanks Snitch.

This woman is certified she is always standing for nothing. Why count someone else's dollars how much is she getting paid for this video? ZERO.

There are two Black Hollywood/industry types:

A) Those who make it and say, I got mine, you get yours.

B) Those who make it and say, we're all in this together so let's share the wealth.

Monique is saying she is one and Whoopi is the other. She's clearly going through something but I doubt at this juncture -- with all her burned bridges -- that anyone at the top is going to stand behind her. That's not how the industry works. Type A people stick together and Type B people become blacklisted, outcast or ostracized when they start talking that Black power shit. Too bad she's just now learning this lesson after a quarter century in the game.

I understand what she's saying but I don't always believe what comes out of her mouth in my opinion she's fake she says Whoopi accepting her salary makes it hard for her. She's truly narcissistic claiming to be concerned for others.

Tiffany Haddish said those very words when she won her Emmy. I got mine. Yet, black producers love her and will book her because she is the new thing.

Mo’Nique stood up for herself and now she’s a trouble maker with a big mouth. Ok. This is why it’s easy for white people to throw pennies at us. They are basically saying ‘know your place, nigger’ and you sambos go right along with it.
Tiffany can say and do the most ignant shat and yt loves her. All you Stevens from Django follow right up behind them saying ‘you’s right massa. I’s sorry’.

Lol! What a joke we are as a whole. Smh!

Whether the consequnces are good or bad; Monique stands her ground and she does it firmly. Sometimes, I dont agree with her methods. However, she stands in her shit and owns it. Maybe except for Tyler ( to me he does so much..philanthropy, resuscitating and starting careers,etc) every one else she's called out has shown their true colors. Oprah is trash. Many years ago she interviewed Micheal at Neverland ranch about those same allegations that were unfounded. Then the Frisco dyke, turns around and teams up with those lying ass white boys decade later to speak on the same thing?? Oprah and Gayle out here dragging Robert Kelly, when Oprah is good friends with Weinstein and other deviants?? Oprah is a disappointment to the culture.Lee Daniels is grimy and screws over people. I wouldn't be surprised if he helped Jussie mastermind that fake attack. Keep doing you Monique!

i understand everything monique be saying but she thinking on a level she's trying to get to. she hasn't reached the level of superstardom that she think she has. she did herself a disservice by not promoting the movie. she didn't look at it as a chance to meet other producers and writers and promote herself while rubbing elbows. one big role one oscar from that role does not make u a superstar. she needed to get a few under her belt. ppl think thats bootlicking but u can't make demands without the power. it took beyonce a billion years to reach the status walking red carpet late, no interviews with a spread, buying the rights to performances. she can ask for whatever she wants but she climbed that mountain first.

I can see this has caused her great stress and pain. I don't have any solutions for her because I know that entertainment industry is run by a bunch of satanic elite.

We can say what she should have done and not done but this industry could give two shits if you’re not stepping and fetching. Many don’t speak up for themselves and we never know why they aren’t working until some scandal comes to light years later.

I’m still #teammonique !

Mo’Nique did promote that horrid character. She just didn’t do it at their every demand. You all need to quit with that shit. What’s really to say about a black, abusive mother on welfare?!??! What more needed to be said over and over and over.

The fuck!

The reality is if us Nubians as a race, could stick together regardless of difference, we would have this on lock. Until we wake up and realize we are the majority and not a minority as we have been lied to, and led to believe things will change. Back in the day when they told Rosa Parks give up your seat to a white man and she refused, black people collectively boycotted the bus service and it collapsed. I don't know why it has not dawned on the collective yet that we are the majority, oppressed by a minority rule. Blacks in hollyweird can pool their resources and collectively make their own movies and tell their own stories, but folks ain't ready yet to be liberated from troglodyte rule.

Norma Rae stay fighting yet none of these youngens or anybody else she going hard for extending an olive leaf or a grape to her ass. She could be right all she wants Hollywood is not fucking with her. PERIODT. She might as well cover her roots and shave her legs and back and find something that will bring her joy.

Whoppi is part of the help—she helps White people feel good about the wicked shit they do. Monique knows that Whoopi has been like this for decades. I understand why Monique is calling her out, but it's not gon' help nor change anything.

Whoppi is who she is and people need to stop expecting her to be anything else.

Whoopi showed up with YT while he was in black face soooo.... Monique expected her to stand up for ?????? Bitch showing up for her pay check the one blackie was not going to give her. And Barbara is somewhere about to kick the bucket the Whoopster still collecting them checks. Meanwhile Monique is taking a stand for who? It is not like she paid and she is taking talent and the road and doing the damn thing She is trying to stop people money, boycotting shit and carrying on and these people have decided they will not bite the hand feeding them, But secretly agree.

She needs to mind her business and furthermore, Whoopi has NEVER been the mentoring type EVERRR!

Monique has lost her mind. Whoopi makes $5-6 million a year at The View, has a rack of vacation days, a driver and the show probably takes at most two hours of her day. Whoopi lives in Manhattan and it probably takes 5 minutes for her to get to the office. It's easy money and she knows it. Nobody is paying Monique $5 million to do anything.

Monique owes back taxes and is in all kinds of financial trouble. She needs to worry about herself and her "daddy".

Monique's' doing two shows a night in Las Vegas and doesn't get to sleep in her own bed. BTW plenty of seats still available for tonight's show. How about she put that energy into her act and promoting her shows in Vegas instead of talking shit about someone who's living a better life than you.
