Mo’Nique Addresses Netflix Rumors & Lee Daniels Telling Her to ‘Shut Up’

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.”

Check out her full response below.

 

NETFLIX DEAL. Get it straight from me. “Lee Daniels behave” LOVE YALL FOR REAL.
