Looks like Mo’Nique has finally had enough Netflix and them denying her the bag she feels she deserves. The comedian took to her IG to properly announce she is filing a discrimination lawsuit against the streaming company! According to the official lawsuit;
“When the talent was not a Black woman, Netflix offered to pay, and did pay, astronomically more than it pays to Black women like it offered Mo’Nique. Thus, Netflix reportedly offered or paid Rock, Chapelle, Degeneris, and Gervais forty (40) times more per show than it offered Mo’Nique, and it offered Schumer twenty-six (26) times more per show than Mo’Nique. In short, Netflix’s offer to Mo’Nique perpetuates the drastic wage gap forced upon Black women in America’s workforce.”
Mo’Nique even called out the Board of Directors stating;
“historically lacked racial diversity and, instead, has been white-only for years. For years, the Board lacked even one Black member — let alone, a Black female.”
