Mo’Nique To Be Featured In NetFlix Comedy Special Three Years After Suing The Streaming Company


Mo’Nique is featured in a special on Netflix three years after suing the streamer.

“Thrilled to announce that Netflix is the home for the next original stand-up special from the groundbreaking, trailblazing, and iconic Monique!’ Netflix tweeted on Tuesday.

“Can you believe this s—-? I done came home to Netflix,” Monique exclaimed in a recording that accompanied the tweet. This will be her first Netflix comedy special.

“And in case you didn’t hear, I’m also reuniting with my friend, my brother, director Lee Daniels on the Netflix film ‘The Deliverance.’ You won’t want to miss either of them, so y’all stay tuned! And thank y’all my sweet babies. I love us for real,” she added.

In 2018, Monique sued Netflix in regards to an opening offer of $500,000 for a stand-up special. She said that the offer was discriminatory. This was becauses Netflix gave Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Ellen DeGeneres, and Ricky Gervais multimillion-dollar deals.

“I had a choice to make. I could accept what I felt was pay discrimination. Or, I could stand up for those who came before me and those who will come after me. I chose to stand up,” Monique posted to Instagram at the time.

In June, the suit was said to have been settled for an undisclosed amount.
