This morning was so intense on the Breakfast Club! Monique was in the building to get to the bottom of why Charlemagne crowned her “Donkey of the Day”.
She was going off in the most elegant manner possible.
If you remember not too long ago Monique was offered $500,000 for a Netflix special which kicked up a whole lotta controversy shortly after Monique’s offer she created a video asking communities and supporters to boycott Netflix. Accusing Netflix of gender and racial bias and stating that she deserved just as much as Amy Schumer and legends such as Chris Rock were paid for their Netflix specials. It was really interesting to hear and watch this interview because he felt like you were seeing a friend of yours get in trouble by his mom. During the interview Monique refused to call Charlemagne by his radio name instead only addressing him by his given name Leonard… that was super weird. But it is his name.
Also right before the interview wrapped Monique made the statement “Well what I will say to you is and what I will say to all the black women listening to this brother’s voice come over the air is, he does not have a value on black women and women of color.”
Sheesssh straight to the gut.
I’m not mad at Monique for demanding more money, she should and she deserves. Black women have been historically paid less than they are worth and deserve.
I also see where Ol’ Charla is coming from. Monique is funny, she is worth more than $500,000 . But if Netflix is going of current arena sales then, I get it we haven’t heard from our girl Mo in a minute.
Monique, I love you foreal and I hope you get your money sis.
