Netflix Responds to Mo’Nique Pay Discrimination Lawsuit
 

 
Netflix has responded to actress and comedian Mo’Nique’s pay discrimination lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Thursday.

“We care deeply about inclusion, equity, and diversity and take any accusations of discrimination very seriously. We believe our opening offer to Mo’Nique was fair — which is why we will be f*ghting this lawsuit,” a spokesperson for Netflix said in a statement to TheWrap.

Mo’Nique’s complaint accused Netflix of gender and race discrimination, saying that the company had given her a “low-ball” and “discriminatory” offer of $500,000 as a “talent fee” for a one-hour stand-up special, while other comedians were offered millions of dollars per special.

“When the talent was not a Black woman, Netflix offered to pay, and did pay, astronomically more than it pays to Black women like it offered to Mo’Nique,” the complaint reads. It also lists several other comedians and what they were paid by Netflix for comparison.

The filing goes on to say that “Netflix reportedly offered or paid [Chris] Rock, [Dave] Chapelle [sic], [Ellen] Degeneris [sic], and [Ricky] Gervais forty (40) times more per show than it offered Mo’Nique, and it offered [Amy] Schumer twenty-six (26) times more per show than Mo’Nique. In short, Netflix’s offer to Mo’Nique perpetuates the drastic wage gap forced upon Black women in the America’s workforce.”

Mo’Nique confirmed that she had filed a lawsuit in an Instagram post on Thursday.

“Hey My Loves — I can confirm that today I filed a pay discrimination lawsuit against Netflix,” she wrote in the post. “I had a choice to make: I could accept what I felt was pay discrimination or I could stand up for those who came before me and those who will come after me. I chose to stand up. I don’t have any further comment this time, but I appreciate all of your support and love.”

Your honor i would like to point out Mo’Nique has declined the offer from Netflix. She has the right to perform her comedy on another platform. Also Netflix has had several comedy specials on the network since then like Deon Cole's Cold hearted streaming now



I would literally turn this into ad if I were Netflix

The only point she has is that Amy Schumer shouldn't be making millions of dollars.

But then again Amy Schumer has that average white fanbase on LOCK, and got her deal when she was hot(clout wise).

Chris Rock like it or not can make bank off his name, and Dave is fu*king Dave.

Everybody listed was actually making that much without Netflix give or take. That’s why this sh*t is retarded.

Monique has never drawn that kind of money. She won that Oscar and it fu*ked her brain up.

How can you sue somebody for a lowball offer? If you don’t like the offer you can take your services elsewhere smh.

The biggest payouts Netflix have given to comedians have been black people.

In their statement they specifically said “opening offer”, which implies they expected her or her reps come to the table and negotiate a better price. Or atleast that’s how I read it. Anyway best of luck to her.

This is a waste of time and money.


She has no chance in winning when over 50% of their exclusive comics specials are African Americans.

This idiot thinks she's on the same level as the other comedians she named? Honestly has nothing to do with man/woman - if you're funny, you're funny! billions of people around the world would k*ll for 500k Monique playing the card at the wrong time.

grand SMH.
