Mo'Nique Accuses Netflix Of Discrimination, Files Lawsuit

Actress Mo’Nique filed a lawsuit against Netflix, alleging discrimination against her as a black woman.

The lawsuit says Netflix offered Mo’Nique $500,000 to appear in a one-hour comedy special.

This offer was low compared to multi-million deals with comedians like Jerry Seinfeld and Dave Chappelle.

The suit states: "The offer tried to perpetuate the drastic pay gap experienced by Black women." According to Business Insider, the actress asked fans to boycott Netflix over the offensive offer.
