Mo'Nique figured it out that now it's the best time to go after Oprah. So, she decided to write a lengthy letter on her social media account in which she called Oprah out, accusing her of being a hypocrite and of making her life so hard.

Check out the American actress and comedian's letter to Oprah below.

'Dear @oprah, I felt compelled to write you this open letter after observing the disparity in the way that you seem to treat people, who were accused of the same allegations. You did an interview on the CBS Morning Show and were asked about Harvey Weinstein by Norah O’Donnell, and you said as it pertained to him that you “always try to look at the Rainbow in the clouds, whatever is the “silver lining”. You also said, “if we make this all about Harvey Weinstein then we have lost the moment”' she began her letter.

Mo'Nique continued and said: 'When you either are, or were going to be a part of documentary on Michael Jackson, and Russell Simmons, how is that not making it all about them? Interestingly, Brother M.J. was acquitted, and deceased, so how is he not off-limits? Russell and Harvey are accused of the same thing, so in fairness how do you not “support” the accusers of both as you said you did with R.S. or you look for the silver lining for both like you said you did for H.W.?'

She went further and said that her personal experience with Oprah is the fact that 'you’ve watched me as a black women be accused of being difficult for not promoting “Precious” internationally for Lions Gate, at Lions Gate, Tyler Perry, and your request, despite the fact my deal was with Lee Daniels Entertainment.'

Mo'Nique also recalled the time when she was only sixteen years old and she met Oprah, telling her that she wants to be just like her when she grows up.

'you have to work really really hard”. My sixteen-year-old self didn’t know that you in your silence in the face of wrongdoing, would make my life “harder”. Lastly, please consider standing by the people who are right and not just the “right people”. Love you to life, Mo’Nique,' she concluded.

Fans are supporting her, but, on the other hand, they don't believe that Oprah will care at all about this letter.

Someone said: 'Mo, don't spend your career proving Oprah wrong... what's done in the dark shall come to light her judgment day will come... you just keep being great & prevail !!!'

A commenter posted: 'thanks for not being scared to be true to yourself and your people.'
