The REAL Reason Debra Wilson Left Mad TV


In a recent interview criminally underrated comedian Debra Wilson explains why she left the popular sketch comedy show Mad TV... 

Debra Wilson tells Comedy Hype she left Mad TV after discovering that white male comedians hired after her were being paid more than she was and that producers would not even discuss renegotiating her salary.

 


Fun Fact: Debra's frequent co-star in sketches, comedian Aries Spears, also claimed there was blatant racism on the Mad TV set [click here if you missed that].

whew!...chile don't worry about the racism stuff just yet, you need to focus on how you are going to heal from all that childhood emotional-trauma-baggage that you are carrying


...shaved head like a boy
...nose ring looking like cattle
...and don't even get me started on dem horrid tattoos...whew!

There is no femininity in your countenance at all.

Thank you! I didn't watch the video, the visual of this woman spoke volumes. Praying for recovery. Amen.

Racism will be demolished in our lifetime, once the collective wake up and realize they are indeed the majority and have the ability to cancel these racist, it's a wrap. In the meantime she is in desperate need of spiritual healing.

She can look any way however, I have laughed the most at her sketches. They were pure funny.

I've always wondered what happened to Debra Wilson because she is an incredibly talented person.

Quincy Jones was the producer of MAD TV. That explains a lot.

Never watched the show. What she is doing now, is what counts.

I think we're long overdue for a comedy special featuring these underrated queens. Put her, Kim wayans, Thea vidale, and some others that have been away from the screen for a while.

Why are the majority of the comments on this blog so dumb ALL THE TIME? I can understand a few ignorant comments here and there but the regulars that post must be crazy.

^ give an example of what your talking about. This may improve the posters reviews. Or not.

If your looking for CNN commentary this is not the place for it.

It's time for you to move on. Why are you here if every comment is ignorant???? That says a lot about your ass. Take your know-it-all ass over to MENSA.org, bitch. You definitely won't be missed here. One less asshole.

I absolutely loved Debra on MAD t.v. with the exception of the Whitney skit because Whitney took too many lashings by the world before she passed. Kim Wayans was kinder doing Whitney and the dkit was fair. Anyway, Debra was amazing on Mad t.v.! I even saw her in a Black movie similar to Tois or it was Tois, i don't recall, but she gives everything 100% She is just phenomenal. She looks like Dave Chappelle's sister on here. She's gorgeous. The best two performances on there were Debra and the tall White guy who was super funny.

That is messed up. I loved Mad TV WAYY more than SNL. I remember tons of sketches from Mad Tv that till day will make me crap up. This is messed up. Debra Wilson was great and I definitely noticed her absence on the show.

Anon said...

Dudem she was like the longest running comedian on the show. That's why she was able to stay so long because her salary was cheap.

Don't blame white people because you were afraid to branch out and spread your wings,

Damn, she’s super talented. It’s a shame she was treated like that.

We do blame your mammy for not swallowing, and spreading her legs wide open the day your ass was conceived. She could have spared the world of your miserable ass.

Anon said...

Some one said we you see a black person in a show for a long time.

They 're afraid to leave because they may not get another job so they stay.

She talented but she undervalued herself.

Madtv was an ensemble show, so she wasn't the main star.

I'm pretty sure Jordan and Peele got paid more.

She looks like that thing from Lord of the rings that said My precious. Everybody can’t rock a bald head mama.

I feel for this sister. She's under serious demonic oppression, it's no laughing matter. She is a brilliant actor, it's unfortunate we didn't get to see her progress.

@9:33am
You hit the nail on the head. It was probably the trauma from that satanic Hollyweird that chewed her up and spit her out.

I don't get the people who say "she can do her" or "live her life", whatever that means, because when it's a young brother who gets turned out like this we are quick to point out how they're cokeheads on their way to hell, but if its a sister, it's woman empowerment 'fists in the air'. Quit with the double standards. She needs healing and restoration.

That show was took over by the white lady and tall white guy. They then made it a Saturday night live clone. Then it died. I believe Debra because the white lady would’ve been jealous if any woman made more.
