Netflix Fires Back at Mo'Nique


Last year Academy Award winning actress Mo'Nique filed a pay discrimination lawsuit against Netflix alleging gender and racial bias after comedian Amy Shumer was paid $13 million for a comedy special while Mo'Nique was only offered $500,000 [click here if you missed that].

Netflix responds...

From The Blast
In newly filed documents, Netflix says, “Plaintiff fails to allege any facts showing that the compensation offered her was the product of discrimination. To the contrary, her Complaint contradicts its core premise by noting that other persons of color, other women, and another African- American woman (like Plaintiff) have been paid substantially more money to create comedy specials for Netflix’s streaming service than what was offered to Plaintiff. And Plaintiff fails to explain why she was entitled to be offered what the stars to whom she compares herself were offered for creating such comedy specials.”
Netflix is seeking a complete dismissal.

This woman and her misguided husband, are single handily murdering her career. With these lawsuits, she will be broke before she's employed.

I really wanted to root for Monique but now she seems like she's trying to do a money grab. She better hope she doesn't end up having to pay their lawyer fees.

And still no low budget comedy special to let us know she's hilarious and worth $100 million. Let Katt Williams drop a teaser and see how funny he is.

11:30 Is it really about a money grab tho? I think not; otherwise, Monique would have stopped her complaints and just settled and went along to go along. She and everyone else knows that she has lost out on a boat load of money. So at this point, with Monique I think it's about the principle of it all..now, don't ask me what "of it all" entails..but nah, it aint about money, because she has fucked herself out of money. So she aint worried about that.. atleast I don't think so.

At this point Monique is looking for a handout. Go be that strong black woman you keep talking about with your mouth but fail to take action on. Netflix is not the only show in town, or have you pissed everybody off??

@11:36 sitcho bitch ass down somewhere. If this was a white woman all hears would be on deck to hear her story. If That's what Monique feels happend to her she has every right to feel that way and do whatever she feels to rectify the situation. You mfs are alone and miserable to be mad at her

Hmmm, well she started this not because Netflix wouldn't give her a special but because they wasn't willing to pay her what they paid Amy.

She was mad at Lee Daniels and Oprah because according to her they wouldn't pay her expense .

She's currently suing Netflix for half a million dollars because she refused to take what they offered her.

I could be wrong. It could be for the principal.

I wish somebody would pay my black ass 500 grand to create something for their channel, so I can't relate. She is letting that huzzband of her's run her career that she worked so hard for, right into the damn ground. This is what happens when you give your power over to niggas who ain't got their own shit, but wanna run yo shit. She get no sympathy from me, I can't women who want to be "led" by a man. Lead your own damn self.

Monique needs to get that she got her acclaim as an actress. The fact is that she's really not that funny as a stand up comedian, and she was really only known on the chitlin circuit. That's why she wasn't worth more. I'm all about supporting Black women, but not when they're clearly wrong.
