Actress Mo’Nique suing Netflix for race, gender discrimination

Oscar-winning actress Mo’Nique sued Netflix Thursday, accusing the streaming giant of racial and gender discrimination by trying to underpay her for a stand-up special. Mo’Nique said she was offered $500,000 for a stand-up series when Amy Schumer got $13m for hers. She also cited the cases of male comedians Ricky Gervais and Dave Chapelle, who were paid considerably more than her and Schumer.

She wants to be paid what Chris Rock, Dave Chappell, and Ricky Gervais makes. She wants A list money, but I've never seen anything she's been in. Sorry, but notoriety is the name of the show biz game, and you have very little.

Seems like a super-weak argument to make, considering that Chappelle made $60 million. Maybe the reason for the low-ball offer isn't due to race but lack of name-recognition amongst the majority public.

Yeah, bitch. Must be racism. That’s the only explanation. I wish I could just throw that accusation around to get my way.

Another woe is me, I'm only getting paid half a million... I for one, have never heard of her, maybe she's just not very good... Bet she's not complaining about her not so funny male counterparts not getting paid much. Don't like the contract? Don't sign... If they like you, they'll offer more... If not, meh...

I can't wait for more of these law suits to roll in and sink these fucks. Joker mode take. What do you get when you inflate a sex and a race to the point they cannot ever be criticized and cross that with a climate cultivated in social revenge? You get what you fucking deserve.

You can't possibly think you could get payed as much as much more accomplished and successful entertainers. She could never bring the numbers those other comedians could. What an idiot

She is just trying to do the same stunt as that French actor Juse Smolle pulled. Fake up a claim to get name recognition. We all know how well that worked out for Juse.
