Mo’Nique is refusing to back down from claims Precious director Lee Daniels was a major contributor to her being blackballed in the industry, with the film exec recently demanding the Oscar-winner “shut up” and stop bad-mouthing his name in the press.
The stand-up refuses to quit speaking her truth, saying, “The truth only goes away if we stop talking and y’all and I ain’t gon’ stop talking.”
She added, “Lee Daniels, you shut up.”
Mo also addressed rumors that she signed a deal with Netflix for a new comedy special.
“I gotta address this $10 million dollar Netflix deal. What’s a word that rhymes with jokes that starts with an ‘h?’ It’s a goddamn hoax! That’s not true, my babies. Just like that lie can become the truth in 24-hours, they can make something up about your girl being difficult and demanding.”
