The last couple of days has seen comedian and actress Mo’Nique call for a boycott of Netflix due to color and gender bias after she was offered a low figure to do a comedy special. While she has gained support from many including Jada Pinkett and Wanda Sykes, many have called out the comedian for worrying too much about what others make.
Aside from calling into question why Amy Schumer was offered $11 million for her special when she has more accolades, Mo’Nique on Wednesday set on sights on Orpah Winfrey and the hype surrounding the media giant with a potential presidential run. According to Mo’Nique, Oprah has shown throughout the years that she has a lack of supporting black women.
“See everybody talking Oprah Winfrey for president and we are rallying behind her” Mo’Nique said. “The black women are saying yeah yeah yeah but let me ask y’all a question. when does she ever rally behind us? What award show does she get up on the stage and say hashtag me too?”
This isn’t the first time Mo’Nique has thrown some severe criticism toward Winfrey. Back in May, Mo’Nique blasted Oprah, alongside Lee Daniels and Tyler Perry, for “whiteballing” her in the entertainment industry because she speaks up for herself.
