Mo’Nique’s fight for racial and gender equality continues with an appearance on Power 105’s The Breakfast Club.
But first, she had a bone to pick with Charlamagne tha God, who named her “Donkey of the Day” a few weeks ago when she called for a Netflix boycott after they allegedly lowballed her for a comedy special. In the interview, Mo’Nique hilariously referred to Charlamagne by his government name, Lenard, and said he “really caught [her] off guard.” Then, she straight up asked him why he did it.
For Charlamagne, it was really simple. He said this is a “what-have-you-done-for-me-lately industry” and that Mo’Nique hasn’t done anything…lately. “How much more,” she asked, “do I have to do, brother?” She then cited that she was in a movie, Almost Christmas, which had a budget of $17 million but later made $45 million while Amy Schumer’s film, Snatched, also made $45 million but had a budget of $42 million. (Numbers don’t lie.)
