If ever there was a woman in Hollywood that had zero f*cks to give, it is Mo’Nique!
The Oscar winner, who has made it extremely public about how certain black producers in Hollywood attempted to blackball her out of the business, has made another statement that is bolder, bigger, and braver than anything she has ever released. Call this ‘Calling Out The Coons’, because?
During a recent stand-up show, the comedienne opined…
“What is that black d—k connected to? That black man? So no, I was not blackballed. I was white-balled by some black d—ks who have no balls. Thank you, Mr. Lee Daniels. Thank you, Mr. Tyler Perry. Thank you, Ms. Oprah Winfrey. I know they like to say, ‘Mo’Nique, you talk too motherf—kin’ much.’ It would kill me not to say the real s—t … You are not paying me equally. You are not treating me fairly, so you can suck my d—k if I had one.”
Previously, she had only pointed out Daniels in her verbal slappage, but now she has dragged Winfrey and Perry into the mix as well. And we all know none of them want to meet ‘Nique in a dark alley.
Two years ago, Mo’Nique went public with her beef with Daniels and held nothing back even then…
“I got a phone call from Lee Daniels maybe six or seven months ago, and he said to me, ‘Mo’Nique, you’ve been blackballed. And I said, ‘I’ve been blackballed? Why have I been blackballed?’ And he said, ‘Because you didn’t play the game.’ There have been people that have said, ‘Mo’Nique, she can be difficult.’ They could probably be right. One of the networks said to [Daniels] that I was ‘really difficult to work with.’ And I said, ‘Well, that’s funny, because I’ve never even worked with them, but OK.’”
And that role Winfrey played in The Butler? Well, according to Mo’Nique, it was offered to her first. That Cookie Lyon role in Empire? It was offered to her first:
“I was offered the role in ‘The Butler’ that Oprah Winfrey played. I was also approached by ‘Empire’ to be on Empire. And I was also offered the role as Richard Pryor’s grandmother [in a new biopic about the late comedian]. Each of those things that [Daniels] offered me was taken off the table. They all just went away. But that’s just part of the business, you know? I can’t be upset at anybody, ’cause life is too good. It’s just what it is.”
So far, Perry and Winfrey have no comment, and they probably never will. Cue the tape!
