Netflix Vows to Fight Mo'Nique Lawsuit


On Friday Mo'Nique announced she was suing Netflix for gender discrimination for offering her much less for a comedy special than her male and white female comedy peers [click here if you missed that].

Netflix vows to fight...

The statement from Netflix reads,
"We care deeply about inclusion, equity and diversity and take any accusations of discrimination very seriously. We believe our opening offer to Mo'Nique was fair — which is why we will be fighting this lawsuit."

I think in years tocome this will be looked upon as being monumental. Being the first isn'always a good position.

This is definitely something that needs to be addressed. However, I think she should also create her own vehicles. Tyler started with plays, Issa Rae started off with a web series. Join the school of teach a man to fish Monique.

all i gotta say is ciara do the same thing beyonce and rihanna does but she will not get paid the amount of money they do. why? because she is not gonna pull a crowd like them. i can't say monique has ever made me bust a gut nor can i say im eager to see a special from her. would i watch, maybe but do i care, no.

Who the fuck is advising this woman? see this is when y'all thirsty desperate asses get these suspect ass men and make them your "manager" what experience does he have in your line of business? who has he managed successfully before? does this broad have money to fight Netflix? does she forget they did offer her a show which she turned down because the money was not enough, then turned around slandered them, tried to stop their bag by having folks boycott them, if she had that type of pull they would have lost millions behind her, this shit is about her ego and that idiot ass manger/huzzband being in her ear. Like someone said she could start her own series, I guess her lil Youtube channel ain't popping or her podcast. So what they offered the other unfunny ugly ass yt girl more money, ain't like she don't know the business is racist lol Netflix is not beholden to offer you, the money you think you are I don't need a crystal ball to tell me this shit will blow up in her face. By now we all know about equal pay, this is not what this is about why can't she let this Netflix shit go? girl you turned down their offer now you wanna sue?

How can it be Gender discrimination if Amy Schumar and Tiffany Haddish got paud milkions for their NEtflix specials.

N9ticed she said gender but not race because the top comeduans in the country are black men.

She has no case. Her career is in the toilet because she is a case study in when keeping it real goes wrong. She handled her career horribly. She was a bad talk show host who got fired when she talked shit about the president of BET. She had a role in an independent movie but wanted extra money to do an Oscar campaign, something every other actress at the level would have killed to do. At every turn this bitch is ungrateful. That dude who did the Christmas movie put her in it and even then she was a pain in the ass, nobody wants to hire her.

Octavia Spencer won for a role that wasn't particularly empowering but she's been in about 10 movies since then, a lead in one or two and was lead in a network TV show. That equals millions.

All these other black actresses work all the time. She's screaming about getting paid what she's worth but nobody else is buying what she's selling. There is no competition for her services. She could have sold her special to Showtime, HBO, Epix, Star. Nobody wanted it.

I could have totally seen her cast in that Eddie Murphy Dolemite movie but why would anyone want the fucking aggravation? Even her own people trying to do her a solid get blasted. It's not worth it.

Netflix produces more black content than any other broadcast network. Hell they produce more originals starring black people than TV One, which is actually partially owned by a black person.

There about about 20 different comedy specials on Netflix a good portion of those with black women from around the world.

All you guys screaming and patting her on the back about this let me say this. She will lose, she will owe lawyers and you all aren't going to chip in a dime. She's delusional and has been for about 10 years now. Stop enabling her and suggest she get some damn help.
