I’m sure by now you all have heard Monique’s plea to boycott Netflix. Well in case you haven’t, let us bring you up to speed. Academy Award-winning actress/comedian Monique has been very upset with the entertainment company for offering her $500,000 for a comedy special. Yes, that may seem like a lot of dough to us, but for Mo its peanuts; especially considering the company offered Amy Schumer a cool $11 mil. To make matters worse, Mo also found out that Netflix offered comedians Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle a whopping $20 mil a piece for their stand-up special. Let Monique explain the issue at hand:
Now that we’re all caught up, let’s take a look at how our black community has responded on Twitter to our girl’s plea. Our top 20 “Boycott Netflix for Monique” Tweets (viewer discretion advised):

These folks are HILARIOUS! So as you can see, many would like to support our girl but there’s just something about Netflix that’s hard to let go of. We understand Monique’s point-of-view and there should definitely be some type of renegotiating. Hopefully they can come to some type of agreement. We’re rooting for you Mo!
