A few years ago it was reported that comedian/actress Monique had been ‘black-balled’ from Hollywood because she didn’t want to “play ball”…..[WHATEVER THAT MEANS!]
In fact, during a 2015 interview with Don Lemon on CNN tonight, Monique stated:
“It wasn’t that I was blackballed like Mr. Daniels said… the phone was ringing and the scripts were coming but the offers that were associated with them made me say ‘I can’t accept that,’ If we continue to accept these low offers, how do we make a change?”
Monique was referring to the interview that director Lee Daniels had with Don Lemon, where he stated that Monique didn’t understand the business of Hollywood.
“I think that there were demands that were made on the ‘Precious’ campaign that everyone knows hurt her. I her that, you’ve gotta play ball. This is not just show— it’s show business.”
Apparently referring to the fact that Monique may have been hard to work with while filming!
It’s 2017, and Monique is CLEARLY not over it!
This weekend while performing at the Apollo theater, Monique called out Lee Daniels, as well as Tyler Perry and Lady O by saying the following:
“I was not black balled. I was white balled. My some black dicks who had no balls. Thank you Mr. Lee Daniels. Thank you Mr. Tyler Perry. Thank you Ms. Oprah Winfrey. I wasn’t black balled I was fucked up by some niggas that had no balls. It would kill me not to say the real shit. You are not paying my equally. You are not treating me fairly. So y’all can suck my dick if I had one.”
