She then shared details of the contract which led Hughley to fire back on his social media account.
“All you have to do is check the order of names on the ticket stub from last night and you’ll see who’s confused,” Hughley wrote. “Against my better judgment, over the objections of my team and 4 other occasions where I said NO, I decided to take a chance and work with Monique.” This promoted Monique to reply and call out Hughley further, who she considered to be a "comrade in comedy.”
