Mo’Nique Launches Boycott Against Streaming Giant Netflix

| January 19, 2018 | 0 Comments

Comedy legend and Oscar Award winning Actress Mo’Nique is calling for a boycott against Netflix for race and gender bias Friday afternoon.  According to Mo Netflix offered her $500,000 for a comedy stand-up special, a very low number compared to the $11 million deal Netflix gave Amy Schumer for her stand up comedy special last year.

When asked why was Mo given such a low deal Netflix claimed “We believe that’s what Mo’Nique will bring.” Then when Mo’Nique asked what about her extensive resume Netflix responded “We don’t go off of résumés.” Netflix claims they consider Mo’nique a comedic legend, so why not offer her a legend’s deal?  Fellow comedians Chris Rock was offered  $40 million for two specials and Dave Chappelle $60 million for four, according to Business Insider. 

Mo took to social media  calling out the  streaming giant Netflix for offering her a less than respectable stand up special deal.

#BOYCOTT#NETFLIX FOR #COLORBIAS AND #GENDERBIAS. PLEASE STAND WITH ME. I LOVE US.
