Last month, (Jan. 19) Mo'Nique made waves online after calling for a boycott of Netflix. The legendary actress and comic accused the streaming platform of gender and racial bias while negotiating a special with the company. She posted to social media, "Please stand with me. I love us." Saturday, (Feb. 24) Chance The Rapper showed support for the 50-year-old with a series of tweets.
Initially, Mo'Nique was allegedly offered $500,000 from Netflix for a comedy special, which she deemed disrespectful compared to Amy Schumer, who she alleges received $13 million. Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle were both reportedly offered $20 million for their specials. The Almost Christmas star refused to accept the low-ball offer and took her talents to shows like Sway In The Morning, The Breakfast Club, and The View to explain her side of the story. Charlamagne Tha God previously gave her Donkey of the Day for her call to boycott Netflix on Jan. 22.
After Mo'Nique appeared on The Breakfast Club Friday (Feb. 23), she began trending again, as she squared off with CThaGod. The video has amassed over two million views in just three days. Chance The Rapper followed Jada Pinkett-Smith and Wanda Sykes as staunch supporters for the Baltimore, MD native.
