Mo’Nique has not been quiet about the various controversies surrounding her ask people to boycott Nextlix for lack of pay. In a recent YouTube video titled Monique & Sidney’s Open Relationship, Mo’Nique and her husband who is also her manager Sidney Hicks talk about what has been going on. They start off by addressing her recent appearance on Steve Harvey’s show STEVE where their conversation got a little uncomfortable to watch.
“When she and Steve got a chance to discuss it, you got a chance to see it in a very rudimentary way. A very elementary and basic way laid out…” Hicks said.
Mo’Nique chimed in saying;
“Someone put, ‘I hate Steve.’ Please don’t. That’s the last thing we want, baby. The last thing we want is for anybody to hate our brother. For anybody to hate Oprah, Tyler, Lee, Steve, Will Packer. We don’t want anybody to hate our brothers and sisters. What we want is for us to fall in love with each other for real.”
They even talked about the struggle that Mo’Nique has been having when it comes to getting what she wants and says she deserves.
“The same people that we deal with now, in history, that’s saying, ‘Mo’Nique, you should be quiet,’ were the same ones who told Malcolm,” he said. “They were the same ones who told MLK, ‘Y’all were crazy for standing up for your rights.’”
This all stems from Mo’Nique calling out major names like Oprah Winfrey, Lee Daniels, Tyler Perry and more saying that they tried to blackball her in the entertainment industry.
