Hey, My Loves. I can confirm that today I filed a pay discrimination lawsuit against Netflix. 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 choose to stand up. I don't have any further comment at this time, but I appreciate all of your support and love.
Mo'Nique alleged in the lawsuit that Netflix paid various comedians like Amy Schumer 13 million for a comedy special, and also race and gender played a role for her to be offer $500,000.
