MO'NIQUE ASKS FANS TO BOYCOTT NETFLIX
Mo'Nique is calling on her fans to boycott Netflix after the streaming company allegedly low-balled her in an offer for a comedy special. The Oscar winning actress and comedian says that Netflix recently offered her $500,000 to create a special for their platform. Last year, Amy Schumer received $11 million for her Netflix special and renegotiated for $2 million more when she discovered that Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle earned $20 million for theirs. Mo'Nique decided to do the same.
"I shouldn’t get what the men are getting, they’re legends," said Mo'Nique. "However, I should get more, and Netflix agreed." But apparently, it wasn't enough. While Mo cited her impressive resume, Netflix was allegedly still reluctant to give her the amount that she felt she deserved. She's accusing Netflix of "gender bias and color bias."
