TRACEE ELLIS ROSS OPENS UP ON HER ‘BLACK-ISH’ SALARY DRAMA
Tuesday, Jan 23, 2018

Tracee Ellis Ross is setting the record straight on rumors of her pay disparity on Black-ish.

Last week a report surfaced claiming Ross was furious she was making much less than co-star Anthony Anderson and that if she didn’t get a big raise she would make less appearances on the ABC sitcom.

Ross denied making any threats and took to Twitter to speak her truth.

“There has been a lot of conversation and speculation the last few days regarding my blackish salary,” she wrote to her nearly one million followers. “I was in a renegotiation, like many actors find themselves in during the fourth season of a successful show. I wanted to be compensated in a way that matches my contribution to a show that I love for many reasons, including the opportunity it allows me to reshape what it is to be a fully realized black woman on TV.”

She then slammed the report and revealed they never contacted her to confirm the story.

“The words and thought that were in the original article that started this public conversation were not mine,” Ross added. “There were never any threats. I wish I would have been called by the reporter to confirm that. Having had my renegotiation become a public conversation was awkward, but I’m grateful for the outpouring of support.”

The 45-year-old ended by tieing in the ongoing larger issues going on right now in the wake of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.

“I’m truly thankful that important conversations are taking place about fighting for women’s worth and equality, and tightening the pay gap in every industry.”

Preach Tracee, Preach!
