https://www.bittermedicineblogs.com – On today’s show we discuss the recent revelation by comedienne Mo’Nique of receiving a low-ball offer from Netflix to do a stand-up special on their platform. The Academy Award winner is calling out Netflix for allegedly offering her $500K for a stand-up comedy special while offering millions to Amy Schumer, Dave Chappelle, and Chris Rock. Mo’Nique is asking the community to boycott Netflix.
Amy Schumer was initially offered $11 million from Netflix and later renegotiated $13 million upon learning the disparity between her and Dave Chappelle’s, as well as Chris Rock’s contracts. Clearly Netflix had no issue negotiating a deal with Schumer, so why not something similar for Mo’Nique? Additionally, since her call for a boycott, Wanda Sykes has joined in saying she was offered less than half of Mo’Nique’s $500K.
Mo’Nique’s argument has some validity, but not necessarily convincing enough to have the community boycott Netflix. We explain why and provide an alternative to you boycotting Netflix. Listen to learn more.
