Mo'Nique slams Oprah, Lee Daniels, Tyler Perry

Share

Oscar-winning actress Mo'Nique called out Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry and Lee Daniels in a (totally NSFW) standup bit at the Apollo Theater. No, baby, I wasn't blackballed I was fucked up by some niggas who had no balls. Thank-you would be Mr.

Mo' and her husband, Sidney Hicks, told us they believe Oprah and Tyler participated in Lee's campaign to label her "difficult to work with" on sets. That black man? So no, I was not blackballed.

"It would kill me not to say the real (expletive)", she says in the segment, which was captured and posted on Instagram.

Since Precious, Mo'Nique has starred in Almost Christmas, Blackbird, Steppin: The Movie, Interwoven and Bessie. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she shared that Hollywood began to blackball her because she remained steadfast on attaining her worth as a highly successful actress.

She went off about falling out of flavor a couple years ago and ended her rant by naming those she feels are partly responsible, telling Lee, Tyler, and Oprah to "suck her d*ck"...if she had one. "I said, 'You have to thank the producers of the film, you have to thank the studio, ' and I think she didn't understand that".

Mo'Nique's drama with Daniels started in 2015 when she said that she was originally supposed to be cast as Cookie in Empire but Daniels vehemently denied it. "And I said, 'Listen, people aren't going to respond well if you don't'". Each of those things that [Daniels] offered me was taken off the table.

Mo'Nique's comedy special at the Apollo Theatre told more than just jokes.

"She's brilliant, and I like working with brilliant people".

Mo'Nique lashed out at Hollywood heavyweights she believed blackballed her from show business.

"She wasn't thinking, and this is where reverse racism, I think, happens", Daniels said.
