Morgan State University alumna and Oscar winner Mo’Nique definitely has something to say, but her plea for help has not been received with universal acclaim. “I am asking that you stand with me and boycott Netflix for gender bias and color bias,” she began in an Instagram video posted Friday.
“I was offered a $500,000-deal last week to do a comedy special,” Mo’Nique explained. “However Amy Schumer was offered $11 million, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle — $20 million. Then Amy Schumer went and renegotiated two more million dollars because she said, ‘I shouldn’t get what the men are getting, they’re legends, however, I should get more,’ and Netflix agreed.”
Not every HBCU fan on Twitter will be down for a good cause. Mo’Nique want us all to boycott Netflix and stand by her. The black college alum wrote, “I believe women deserve equal pay. However, I don’t believe I deserve equal pay to Chris and Dave. They are legends and 2 of the greatest comics of all time.” Since, HBCU fans on Twitter took to Twitter to react to her plea for help.
It’s a shame that when you speak out, some people come at you like you’re no longer funny. It’s crazy because I know your talent and know the money you’ve brought in for all these corporations. Folks willing to blackball you for speaking up and silly folks believe it 🙁 pic.twitter.com/U98NGIzmVh
