Mo’Nique stopped by the talk show ‘The View’ this Thursday, February 22. She shared her stance on the Netflix debacle that she has been promoting for quite a while now.
While she was speaking about her grievances with Lee Daniels, Oprah Winfrey, and Tyler Perry, she got some massive criticism from the co-host Whoopi Goldberg.
The situation became awkward when Mo’Nique talked about how she was allegedly betrayed by Lee, Oprah, and Tyler after she had refused to promote the 2009 drama.
She also brought up the money subject regarding the promo trail, and this was when Whoopi stated that she was having none of all these excuses.
‘I’m going to stop you because, contractually, when you make a movie, regardless of who you sign the deal with, your job is to go and promote the said movie,’ she said.
‘And we’ve had this conversation, and I said if you had called me, I could’ve schooled you on what was expected.’
Mo’Nique then said that ‘What Tyler Perry showed me, Lee Daniels, Oprah Winfrey, and Lionsgate is that, When you don’t do what we ask you to do, we will take your livelihood.’
‘So, for 8 years, my family has suffered, and my career as well because I would not allow those entities to bully me,’ she continued.
‘And because I did not allow the bullying to happen, this is what I sit in,’ she concluded.
Whoopi threw her hands up in the air and shook her head as a sign of frustration. You can see it all in the video above.
