Mo’Nique Blasts Lee Daniels, Tyler Perry, & Oprah Over Blackball Drama

Published: Sunday 14th May 2017 by Sam

It’s been two years since Mo’Nique‘s “blackball” drama hit headlines.

For those that need a refresher, the actress went public with claims that she was blacklisted in Hollywood after butting heads with director Lee Daniels.

At the time, both publicly clashed over the validity of their accounts with little resolve taking place thereafter.

During a comedy gig last night, the Oscar winner re-ignited the flames by taking direct aim at Daniels as well Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey.

See what we mean below. Be warned though, expletives feature…

Here at TGJ we have already expressed our varying views on the matter, but one thing that is certain is that candidness in the manner she expressed above definitely comes at a price. A hefty one.

    From oscar winner to chitlin circuit stand up

    • iCritic May 14, 2017

      you act like it’s something bad about the circuit. Blacks supporting black entertainment is beautiful.

      Winning an oscars in general means nothing for your career. I think Halle Berry ‘s career was poppin way harder before she won the oscar.

      • Dee May 14, 2017

        Halle Berry has even said that winning an Oscar does not mean your career is gonna skyRocket . It just means u Leverage to ask for a bigger check. It doesn’t mean the scripts are gonna start pouring in. I agree with u Halle Berry was getting better roles before she won the Oscar

    I like Oprah but I agree with Monique because she always spoke the truth.

    Monique sit down.. you didn’t make your career into something. Look at viola Davis do you think she waited for Oprah or Tyler to help her. She made it her own way.. you should be thanking them. The only way you get black balled if they help you get to a status and you mess it up when you get there and make them look bad then all ties are cut because your messing up there business by association.

      She got that opportunity with Precious and didn’t promote the movie. THAT is why she got blackballed. But she won’t say that

  5. Credits May 14, 2017

    She’s already been blackballed so what does she have to lose now?

    • Casual-T May 14, 2017

      She could shut up, move on, and let her reputation heal.

    The profanity is cringing expecially when she added oprah in the mix. She lost me when she started to talk about her open marriage. She lost a lot of supporters, respect and probably those people who she named. As for oprah, i feel like after her show ended she didn’t have a big platform like she did. Why should monique care oprah can’t do nothing for her.

  7. @Nate May 14, 2017

    She should be trying to talk to 50 cent about being in Power, empire is wack now anyway. Monique can act her but off, but she has to start being more creative.. f*** perry, daniel, and winfrey they make crap roles for blacks anyway.

  8. Toni May 14, 2017

    She is telling the truth from her point

  9. BitchPlease May 14, 2017

    Monique’s STANK attitude and victimization whining is why black and white celebrities don’t wanna work with her. She blackballed HERSELF!!! #YouLookFoolish

    • Speak the truth don’t care what foolish people think May 14, 2017

      #1 no one in their right mind will work for nothing you have to pay people for these things no one will benefit them and not get benefited for helping them out that’s not the way it’s goes and that’s all she’s saying period she just happens to be one who speaks completely out about it!

    • Casual-T May 14, 2017

      I co-sign. Mo’Nique said on the radio in Atlanta that when Oprah called and asked her to go to Cannes to promote Precious (promote meaning to put on fancy gowns and walk red carpets) and campaign for the Oscar, Mo’Nique told Oprah she was in bed with her husband and kids watching cartoons. Who craps on an Oscar? Mo’Nique’s absence was conspicuous, and please believe her behavior was spread to other rainmakers in the film industry. Like you said, Mo’Nique blackballed herself.

      • Jasmine May 14, 2017

        @Casual-T That is not the full story. Oprah and Lee Daniels wanted Monique to do a lot of free press but were not willing to pay her for it. Monique would have had to pay her own travel, buy her own gowns, etc. There are always two sides to every story. Yes, Monique was wrong for not biting the bullet and paying for everything to promote the movie but Oprah and Lee Daniels were wrong for not offering to pay Monique for it. 2 wrongs don’t make a right.

    Monique, just get out here and do your thing! That’s all. Actions speak louder than words. She spoke the truth, yes. But she also (in so many words) spoke the truth almost 2 years ago too. So just f*** them. Show up and show out

  11. dyd972 May 14, 2017

    I truly love Mo’nique but this time i disagree with her. On her podcast, on her interviews, she always talks about respecting each other and being the bigger person. Now it’s ” suck my d***” ? At what time Perry and winfrey been disrespectful publicly to her ?

  12. I HATE BLACK and WHITE B****** May 14, 2017

    Monique should present herself with more class…her stand up comedy is filled with trash. Distance yourself from the ghetto stand up…..even queen latifa had to check Monique profane mouth

  13. Ollie Eaton May 14, 2017

    I’m so sorry that happened to you Monique!!! That is sad when you think know someone and they turn around and s*** you in the back. That is childish. Keep pushing Monique.

  14. Jasmine May 14, 2017

    I like Monique a lot. She keeps it real.

  15. Island boi May 14, 2017

    I know you think your keeping it real…bulk girl you need to shut your mouth and be humble…yes you are funny…but what you did was bury yourself with that mouth and that attitude. ..I’m afraid the damage has been done….GOOD LUCK!

  16. Dianne Donald May 15, 2017

    Maybe Maybe not she sounds like she was very frustrated with in resolved issues life has a way of turning around on you keep watching

  17. Michelle May 15, 2017

    I don’t think she was black balled or white balled. I think it just maybe her nasty attitude and her filthy mouth that keep her from working!

  18. Renee F. May 15, 2017

    Telling them to suck her d*ck if she had one! Honey you disrespect yourself on that one. Never invite anyone to your a$$. If she feels wronged, there has to be a better way to get it out there!!!
