MO’NIQUE ‘CHOSE TO STAND UP’ & FILE A PAY DISCRIMINATION LAWSUIT AGAINST NETFLIX
Friday, Nov 15, 2019

Hello, my loves! It looks like Mo’Nique is saying goodbye to Netflix once and for all with a new pay discrimination lawsuit! The comedian announced yesterday that she “chose to stand up” and file a lawsuit against the streaming service. She said Netflix offered her a “talent fee” of $500,000—which she describes as discriminatory based on her race and gender. Along with a list of comedians who have been paid handsomely for their comedy specials, her complaint reads “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 to Mo’Nique.” It also states that not only did “the offer tried to perpetuate the drastic pay gap experience by Black women,” the streaming giant “refused to engage in any negotiation.”

Netflix has since responded with the following statement:

“We care deeply about inclusion, equity, and diversity and take any accusations of discrimination very seriously. We believe our opening offer to Mo’Nique was fair — which is why we will be fighting this lawsuit,” CNN reports.

What do you think about Mo’Nique going toe-to-toe with Netflix?
