After told this amount is what she deserved by Netflix officials, she made a decision to call out Netflix publicly and call for a boycott of the service. Amy Schumer was offered $11 million compared to Mo'Nique's $500,000 deal.
Oscar winning actress and comedian, Mo'Nique, recently went on social media and asked for a boycott of the streaming media and video-on-demand platform, NETFLIX, due to the amount the company offered her for her stand up show.
The comedian said Netflix executives told her, "We don't go off of resumes", arguing that they pay their stars based on how many eyeballs they can bring. "However, I should get more, ' and Netflix agreed". I was offended, but found another home.
Comedian Tony Rock had a few words for fellow comedienne Mo'Nique, "It's poor etiquette to count people's money..."
Mo'Nique claims that the streaming giant only offered her $500,000 for a stand-up special, while Schumer received $13 million after negotiations, and Chappelle and Rock earned $20 million each for their stints. She plays Daphne Lido on Black-ish, but has appeared on numerous other television programs-Broad City, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The New Adventures of Old Christine-as well as in films, such as Bad Moms (2016) and Monster-in-Law (2005).
"Is that not Amy Schumer's résumé?" she added. "And then Netflix said, 'By the way, we believe Mo'Nique is a legend, too.' Why shouldn't I get what the legends are getting?"
The actress took to Instagram to make her plea to her followers, where she also gave her side of the story. Mo'Nique didn't object to the high pay for others - it just wasn't clear as to why the figures for her and Sykes were so much lower.
