Legendary actress, Mo’Nique went on Instagram moments ago to call for the boycott of Netflix following what she described as gender and racial bias by the entertainment company.
In the video she posted, the 50-year-old comedian alleged that Netflix had offered her $500,000 for a comedy special while Amy Schumer was offered $11 million and Chris Rock and Dave Chapelle $20 million each.
Amy Schumer was offered a significantly higher fee than Mo’Nique
According to her, Amy had gone back to ask for more stating that while she doesn’t deserve as much as the comedy legends, Dave and Chris, she certainly deserved more than the initial $11 million. The company obliged, adding 2 million dollars to her fee.
But no such thing was done for Mo’Nique even after she complained to the company.
See her post below.
#BOYCOTT#NETFLIX FOR #COLORBIAS AND #GENDERBIAS. PLEASE STAND WITH ME. I LOVE US.
