Mo'Nique Launches Boycott Against Netflix Over Stand-Up Offer

"Is that not Amy Schumer's résumé?" she added.

The Oscar-winning actress, 50, claimed in an Instagram video that Netflix recently offered her a $500,000 deal for a comedy special, while other comedians such as Amy Schumer and Dave Chappelle received $13 million and $20 million.

Harvey Levin then somewhat condescendingly tried to explain how negotiating works, and asked Mo'Nique why she didn't take her talents elsewhere if she didn't like the amount she was offered. Instead, she explained Netflix's lowball negotiation strategy thusly: "It's gender bias".

'I said: 'What about my resume?

She immediately followed-up: "When you look at my resume, I am the most decorated alive".

Mo'Nique says Netflix ended its conversation by telling her that she, too, is a "legend".

"Then we asked them, 'What is it about Amy Schumer?' And they said, 'Well, she sold out Madison Square Garden twice, and she had a big movie over the summer'".

'I am asking that you stand with me and boycott Netflix for gender bias and colour bias, ' she began in a video posted Friday. 'Please stand with me in this boycott of Netflix'.

Currently, Netflix has a Mo'Nique special airing on its service titled, "I Coulda Been Your Cellmate". Mo'Nique asked, rhetorically. Last year, she lashed out at Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry and Lee Daniels for not paying her fairly.

The comedienne wrote: 'I believe women deserve equal pay. You are not treating me fairly, so you can suck my d*** if I had one, ' she said during a May show at the Apollo Theater.
