Mo’Nique Wants Y’all To Boycott Netflix for Gender and Race Bias

Peep this:

#BOYCOTT#NETFLIX FOR #COLORBIAS AND #GENDERBIAS. PLEASE STAND WITH ME. I LOVE US.

OOOOOOOOKAYYYYYYY.

So.

I must admit that I don’t pay attention to Mo’Nique – so I am not sure about any major body of work she’s done in the past decade (she was in “Almost Christmas” in 2016). I looked it up and posed this question on Twitter and was informed that there is no major body of work of hers within that time frame.

Now.

I DO think it is ridiculous that Netflix told her they do not consider resumes. They OBVIOUSLY do <– and THIS is the reason why they offered her $500,000. The comedians she mentioned have made MAJOR moves, have a loyal following, and Netflix was sure they were going to make a profit with the offers they gave them.

Anyway, what do y’all think? I know I have a bias because, again, I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a fan…but am I missing something? I think this could’ve been a positive step for her to get to where she wants to be, but instead she declined $500,000 (!?!?!?) and is calling for a boycott that ain’t gonna happen. Yikes.

What say you?
