During a Mother’s Day comedy show at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, the Oscar-winning star of “Precious” went off on three of Hollywood’s biggest names accusing them of “white-balling” her.
“So no I was not blackballed, I was white-balled by some black d—-s who have no balls,” said Mo’Nique during her show. “Thank you Mr. Lee Daniels, thank you Mr. Tyler Perry, thank you Ms. Oprah Winfrey.”
“No, baby, I wasn’t blackballed I was f—-d up by some n—-s who had no balls,” she continued. “I know they like to say ‘Mo’Nique you talk to motherf—–g much,’ it would kill me not to say the real s–t. You are not paying me equally, you are not treating me fairly, so y’all could suck my d–k if I had one.”
This isn’t the first time Mo’Nique has lashed out at her “Precious” writer and director, Lee Daniels. In 2015, the actress said that Daniels had offered her the role of Cookie Lyon on “Empire” as well as Winfrey’s role on “The Butler.” Daniels refuted both claims.
“Mr. Daniels offered me the part of Cookie, and I have the emails and the sides to go along with it, and what he said was, ‘I’m new to this TV thing. This is just a technicality… you have the role.’ Okay. I have the emails,” Mo’Nique told Access Hollywood, adding: “Well, four days have gone by because I didn’t receive a phone call or another email for the location of where I was supposed to go to do this screen test.”
Daniels previously made the assertion that she was “blackballed” from Hollywood after making “unreasonable demands” during the Oscar campaign for “Precious.”
