Mo’Nique Is Suing Netflix For Discrimination

Netflix has a lot of in the works...including a discrimination suit filed by #Monique.

Mo'Nique has officially decided to take her accusations against Netflix for discrimination to a court of law by filing a lawsuit.

According to TMZ, the Oscar winner is standing her ground on the belief that the streaming service has a serious issue with race-based discrimination specifically on how it negotiated a comedy special with her.

If you recall Mo’Nique was less than pleased when Netflix only offered her $500,000 for her standup special compared to the $11 million (that eventually turned into $13 milli) offered to #AmySchumer.

According to the suit, she claims Netflix has a severe lack of diversity, which contributes to their discriminatory practices. Specifically, she claims one Netflix exec. -- the Chief Communications Officer -- used the n-word in a meeting with 60 people in 2018. Mo'Nique was not present for that meeting.

She's suing Netflix for unspecified damages, and for an injunction forcing the company to change its discriminatory policies.
